    There is a new version of this presentation. Version 1.1. It’s only the last 60 second that are a little different but there’s a credit at the end that was REALLY important to me to have included and I was very sad to have omitted it in the original; that’s what I get for finishing it at the last second. 😉

    If you decide to share this presentation please share this version:

    This is a very informative presentation. Darren gets into many facets of life and teaching.The quote he uses is a good one “We shape our tools then our tools shape us.” This I believe is a basis for teaching using books or technology. He goes on to say we need to look through many sources in order to get the full information it is that we seek in order to teach/share this knowledge. The third issue he talks about is when students and teachers can work together and support each other the people as a whole are stronger. This is true for the lesson learned.
    Another thing he addressed was through blogging students can be recognized by their peers in a positive way…Get positive feedback.Through twitter Darren got feedback on how to make his lesson stronger/better. Using technology can enhance the content being taught or learned and in turn students as well as teachers can be better for it.
