I thought I would do a blog post about my mom tonight. She is learning about technology and all these great new tools along with me. My mom isn't very technically savvy, but she's getting better and at least she tries. Here's a few things she had to say. See below:
Well, I feel fortunate to have someone like Meridan to teach me what she is learning in school and from her teacher-librarian, Mrs. Miller. Mrs. Miller has opened a new world up for both of us. It's interesting as a parent because you have a perception that a teacher may think that they are only teaching their students, but when it comes to technology their reach is so wide and vast. Much of what Meridan is learning and using at school is applicable to my life as well. She is learning and adopting much more quickly than I ever could, on my own, or through a yearly training session. Meridan laughed when I wrote that (a teacher may think that they are only teaching their students...) She said, "Not Mrs. Miller! She knows better than that!" So I guess I'm not only learning about technology, but also community and the reach technology has given to all of us.
That sums it up for now! Thanks mom! -Until next time!
