On October 16th, ASPIRE leaders Sai Gajjala and Arpita Mandal, presented a very interesting talk on using technology to support teaching and learning. Their Beyond Powerpoint message was well received by the group, which had a lively conversation about appropriate uses of social media to engage students. …just imagine having Abe Lincoln, Fred Douglass and the Civil War generals interacting on a “faux” Facebook page… now that might get an 8th grader interested in the day-to-day lives of 19th century Americans…who says there are no new tricks?
Great Job Sai and Arpita!!
