“The miracle of gratitude is that it shifts your perception to such an extent that it changes the world you see."
— Dr. Robert Holden


For Thanksgiving this year, we want to hear all about your gratitude. Specifically your gratitude for your students. We flipped the script and asked teachers to tell us about a time when a student taught them something about technology.

We hope these stories will inspire you to think creatively about utilizing technology in new ways in the classroom. We also hope these stories inspire gratitude - the key to creating a positive culture and growth mindset in and outside the walls of the classroom.

Fifty years ago, much work was accomplished by individuals working alone, but not today. Much of all significant work is accomplished in teams, and in many cases, global teams."
The National Education Association, An Educator's Guide to the "Four C's "
 

Collaboration is one of the most essential ingredients to fostering 21st century skills and deeper learning in the classroom. The Harvard education specialist Tony Wagner has argued that, because knowledge is now available on every internet-connected device, the ability to collaborate has become far more important for students than academic knowledge.
