Off the Grid: Mixing Up HiTech and LowTech

The WiFi is down, again! "How do they expect me to use these digital tools if the network isn't working?" I've thought this on many occasions. Eventually, I was reminded that it's not the tool that makes it happen.

Make a new tool, or use and old one like paper. It loads really fast (once everyone has a piece). But enough with the tongue in cheek.

I prefer a mixture of paper and digital technology, regardless of the Internet connection. But this doesn't mean we share information differently. We place likes on paper and post to the walls of our classroom.

Don't underestimate the power of paper.

Here are a couple spaces we use in our classroom. Subscribe to my YouTube channel for more to come.
