I believe today's students are the greatest users of technology. They crave innovation and cannot get enough of the connections they make with the touch of their fingers. I think Major Tech Companies (Apple, Microsoft, IBM, HP, etc.) need to Thinktank, Brainstorm, and partner with classrooms all around the country. They need to put more of their products in the hand of students and teachers, in exchange for ideas to develop their products! I welcome ipads for my middle schoolers in exchange for their communications with apple on ways to improve or develop their products. If Major Tech companies only knew the phrases I hear every day...."Mrs. Marreel, If I were to make an app....." or "I would love a device that...." Your next big idea is probably in the mind of my 6th grader right now!!!
