Critical Need Area
When I was perusing the site, this collection kept snagging my attention. Yes, it is fascinating, but even more interestingly, I teach 11th grade, the opposite end of the spectrum. First, I think it is critical to deepen and extend our conversations about technology in our young learners. Building a foundation is paramount to the advanced work we seek to pursue at the upper grades. Your collection previews and delineates the thinking that can be both an inspiration to kindergarten teachers and educators as a whole. I think it really connects to the concept of "digital natives" that has become more of a catch phrase than an action plan. This is authentic, and authentic is what is needed to develop and sustain the support for digital processing, learning and production at all grade levels. Too often we look only at the grade levels, or floor levels, directly above and below us. This "concrete" foundation is solid, timely, and ever relevant.
