The Changing Spaces of Reading and Writing

Nancy Bird, London, 1939

Hi everyone. My name is Louise Thomson. I am currently working on courses number 8 and 9 (!) in the MET program and am working full time as a grade 2 teacher in a rural community in beautiful Vancouver Island.

I chose this picture because of the conversations I have been having with my co-workers all week about technology integration into our non-techie school. I have spent this first week of school with the grade 5’s because our class assignments have not been made and chose to teach them how to do claymation rather than some of the usual first week stuff. They have blown me away with what they created!

When I saw this picture I thought about how exciting new technology often for some and how intimidating it is for others. Like this plane, in the wrong hands it can also be dangerous!!

Hi Louise,

I love the picture and your statement that technology in the wrong hands can be dangerous. I was thinking that the picture also conveys how technology can open doors. Such as avaition for women!
