A few days back, I published a post of things teachers had done to go paperless in their classrooms. Some were high-tech and some were lo-tech. They were all creative, thoughtful, determined, and pro-student.
This evening I got word of another project a teacher and his students took on. And I'm in awe.
"My 130 + students decided that we were not going to go paperless for just Earth Day, but rather the remainder of the year. We discussed a plan and then put that plan into action. My students and I were able to take a laptop cart that had been abandoned by most at the school due to the operating issue of the machines, which are about six years old. We spent the next few weeks leading up to Earth Day repairing and cleaning the machines up after school.That's from a post by Mike Meechin, a high school teacher in Florida. He posted it on his blog -- Innovate Education -- and I, for one, am looking forward to checking in throughout these last several weeks of the school year to see how he and his students are doing.
"On April 22, we launched our own computer lab in my classroom."
