This week in EDTC 300 we were assigned a really fun blog post! We had to create a blog post about some technologies that can be used in the classroom and we were to make this blog post with a partner in the class. Luckily I did not have to go through the awkward phase of looking for a partner as Brianna Gelowitz and I texted each other almost at the same time wondering if we wanted to be partners.
Brianna and I took a bit of time trying to find a topic to discuss. The topic we finally came up with was paperless classrooms. Paperless classrooms have been a topic of discussion in both our EDTC 300 class and other education chats including the #saskedchat. There are many pros and cons to having a paperless classroom and Brianna and I decided that we would outline them to you in a messaging format.
After about two to three hours of typing and perfecting what we wanted to say, and coffee of course, Brianna and I finally finished. We outlined both the pros and cons that are associated with a paperless classroom and some of the concerns that parents may have in three short videos. We tried Screencastify for the first time to record the conversation that we had. I have to say, I thought it would be a lot harder to use, but Screencastify was really simple to use! We also have a link to the discussion if you do not want to watch the video here.
Below are the videos in order for the conversation between Brianna and I discussing paperless classrooms.
Thank you for watching all the videos! I hope you enjoyed our takes on paperless classrooms. If you have any other pros and cons for paperless classrooms, please comment below! Thanks for reading my blog post!
