This year I am attempting to collect data of first graders' ever-evolving understandings of what technology is. In September, I asked our students to tell me what they thought technology was by drawing and writing about it. Later, we recorded their voices in a program called VoiceThread.
I hope you enjoy their responses. (You can speed up the slideshow by clicking on the right arrow below the VoiceThread screen.)
We used a FlipCam to video their responses to the same question in October. For some crazy reason, I am unable to upload the tiny movie to my website. As soon as I figure out a place to store the film, I will link it to this blog.
