Making the World Kinder

Two weeks ago, we had the very surreal experience of having a professional film crew in our classroom filing us.  To be put under the microscope in such a way is odd to say the least, yet, it was business as usual here in room 235D.  We had learning to do, explorations to have, and so our days continued, film crew or not.

I did not know at first which angle Microsoft would take on their video highlighting cloud technology in the classroom, but just knew they wanted to see what we do.  To say that I am proud of the final result is an understatement.  I am so proud of how my students are growing, I am so proud of how they question the world, seeking their own conclusions and figuring the world out.

Yesterday the president of Microsoft, Brad Smith, tweeted our video out.

So here is a peek into our classroom, thank you Microsoft for giving me a way to show the world the power of kids and technology.

    No better example of someone helping her students ask the two main questions that should drive all learning: Why are things the way they are? How can we make them better?

  2. Wonderful example of how a caring educator and access to a global perspective can make the world a better place, one student at a time. Thank you, Pernille!
