Tech Talks

We have been meeting with a group of teachers this year to really explore technology integration.  We started with just getting together to share ideas, how we were using apps/tech in the classroom and started our QR code project.

I started thinking about this group today during Spring Break as my 12 year old, Parker, was in his teen-cave playing on Xbox.  He had heard that the Kinect could be used with his Halo game (not that I totally approve of this game choice).  :-)  But it was funny to watch him--he could speak commands and direct the game to do what he wanted.  "Scan"  "Flashlight on" "Flashlight off"

It just took me a minute to realize that he was talking to a sensor, connected to a tv, and giving it commands.  That's pretty awesome (which is probably not the correct *cool* word choice he would use).  I imagine that soon, we will do the same to our tv and computers...

Where do you think we will be in 5 years?  Just pondering....and thinking that technology is pretty amazing in so many ways.
