The Connected Classroom


This video by Kristin Hokanson is one of the best videos I've seen on education in the 21st century. I encourage ALL educators to check it out. The video comes from Kristin's professional wikispace The Connected Classroom. Her wiki contains OOOODLES of information about connecting your classroom to the world and beyond! In my opinion, it should be the first stop for any educator who is trying to connect to the world of their students and to understand what it is to be a Digital Native.
