Teaching with technology

Cowan's TECH SAVY ED 305 students have been at it again.... this week they played around with Prezi and Jing and created some really great "teaching with technology" presentations. I must confess that I am quite pleased with the outcome of their hard work - I have, BY FAR, the BEST group of ED 305 students on campus this semester.....

While there were many very well organized and presented presentations, the one that shone the brightest was by Kelsey Turner: 


If an educational act is to be efficacious, it will be only that one which tends to help toward the complete unfolding of life. To be thus helpful it is necessary rigorously to avoid the arrest of spontaneous movements and the imposition of arbitrary tasks.

James 1:2-4 ESV 

Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.

I humbly thank my wonderful family for their support in all that I do. Robert Robbie Cowan, Robert Drew Andrew Cowan, and Hunter Cowan Hartselle, Decatur, AL
