I came across this video on the site Smart Teaching.org and their listing of 100 best Youtube videos for teachers. Technology and internet brings so many fantastic opportunities of giving life to history and for simply making things more fun. Having an internet connected projector with a large projection screen in the classroom is for me the most important of teaching aids. Easy to install and relatively inexpensive (compared to for example Smart boards). For students who has a hard time digesting written text visualisations through film and pictures are of course very valuable.
Like Bruce Dixon put it in his lecture at the “Framtidens lärande” conference last May: “Technology in the hands of an educating professional, of a teacher, increases pedagogical capacity. It increases your capability to reach more young people with a deeper understanding of a broader range of subjects than you could without. Simple as that!”
