Hi again! This week in class we have been discussing Google jockeying...another form of technology that I have no experience with. From what I understand, Google jockeying is a multi-media presentation in which the lecture is accompanied by the Internet.
Here is how it works. I stand around and talk about George Washington, and while I'm doing that I have a helper searching the web for George Washington related info (maybe go to the virtual tour of Mount Vernon, perhaps? :))
Anyway, it seems like a bit much to me. I don't think kids will pay much attention to the lecture as they would probably be more interested in what is going on on the screen. Also, I would worry that my helper would not be able to find relevant info. If I were to attempt this, it would have to be rehearsed and my websites planned out ahead of time.
I know you would be losing the spontaneity that way...but I'd rather have a plan.
