Reflecting about Changing the World

We have spent the last six weeks, editing, writing, revising, researching, and collaborating on your Change the World paper. I want you to think back over the last six weeks and think about your writing, your final product, your action plan, peer editing, Diigo, etc..

1- Are you proud of your final product? Why or why not?
2- How was this paper different than others you have written?
3- What did you like the most about this paper?
4- What would you change about this paper?
5- How helpful were the writing conferences and writing lab?
6- How helpful was peer editing?
7- What did you think of Diigo? Did it help you?
8- Do you think you can make a difference in this world?
9- Final thoughts...

In the article "No Choice" by Will Richardson is right about kids needing more technology in the classroom because, from first hand experience it will improve the kids learning habit and environments. Will Richardson describes his kids and how he devotes his time thinking about his kids future. More importantly the future of our kids but it's scary to think what will happen if we don't get more technologicly advanced. The future sees dim if something doesn't change. The children of America need to be properly trained with the right tools for a better tomorrow. Technologically will increase the learning environment and habits that occur and will have a national effect.
