I’d like to thank Brian Aspinall for giving me permission to share this video: “Beyond rote learning: Brian Aspinall at TEDxChathamKent”. After watching the video it reminded me why my passion for Educational Technology can make a difference in a student’s life. Since my very first exposure to technology it cast a magical hold upon me. This guided me into experimenting with a variety of innovative ways to integrate educational technology.
Twitter is one of the magical ed tech tools I have discovered. Thanks to Twitter I was lucky to have a chat with Mr. Aspinall after viewing the TEDx Video. The discussion lead to my acceptance that it is okay to think differently. Most of all it is important to never give up on your passions and the benefits it can provide to others. Yes! I do believe when one uses Educational Technology in both innovative and engaging manners it can make a positive difference with our student’s learning. You can learn about the magic educational technology delivers by watching Brian’s video.
