I’m enthralled by the Global Read Aloud. Tens of thousands of teachers, hundreds of thousands of students, all reading the same book at the same time. All around the world, and then connecting about it. This example of how technology expands the classroom should be extended to all sorts of content. But there’s something about the reading aloud bit that takes this technological masterpiece and turns it into magic that’s not the same as a world-wide Skype session with a scientist. And I think that is a good thing.
