Working with Hillsboro 5th graders this morning as they create PowerPoint presentations. Their task is to document their research on heros and guide their thinking as they create a narrative essay.

Interesting to watch them have conversations, seem much more engaged than when using paper and pencil. Maybe I just want them to be more engaged. Does technology really improve learning?

Still kind of fun to be back with kids again after four years working mostly with teachers and other adults.
