Day 5: Post a picture of your classroom and describe what you see....and what you don't see that you would like to.For three years now I have not had my own classroom. I help teachers integrate technology into learning, which takes me in to many classrooms. In these classrooms I see students using technology more than ever before.

|One of my favorite photos: demonstrating the importance of mobile devices |
to allow students to move and find the right 'space' to learn
|Students collaborating on their coding projects|
While working with 5th grades students on coding projects I observed many instances of spontaneous collaboration. Students would group up to discuss how to solve a problem or to share a new accomplishment. We also encouraged students to share each stage of the process as they were creating with the class by projecting their working via Apple TV and the projector.
|This picture is awesome because it shows students working together in informal groups |
and you can also see that students are watching someone sharing their work
with the class via the projector. So much collaboration and sharing!
