Where Will Kids Put the Internet in the World?

Read Write Web and Latitude recently conducted a survey of children in which they asked the kids to share the things they think computers and the Internet should do. As you might expect some of the responses were very imaginative. I look at the results of the survey as a preview of what computers and the Internet will do in the next decade or two. If you don't want to read the reports here and here, at least watch the video below summarizing some of the students' responses.

Virtually Attend a Student Technology Showcase

Tomorrow, a small school district in Maine is hosting an awesome annual event and is inviting the whole world to attend. Maine Regional School Unit #19 is hosting a Student Technology Showcase. This event is organized by a fellow Google Certified Teacher and all around great guy, Kern Kelley. This is the seventh year in a row that RSU #19 (formerly SAD #48) has hosted this event. It's a great time for students to show-off the awesome things they've done. The event runs from 10am to 1pm EST. If you cannot physically attend, you are welcome to sign-up for live virtual tours of the showcase. To learn more about this event and to sign-up for a virtual tour, click here.
