Awakening – My Eyes Wide Opened Wide

The Day I Really Figured Out the Power of Technology

It was a few years ago now but it was the moment of an awakening for me in my thoughts about the power of technology.

I had always been a ‘techie head’ at school with the kids and had always given them the ownership of their learning with technology but it wasn’t until I was at the soccer one day with my kids and my then 3 year old took my camera and started to take photos.  When I took the camera home and transferred the photos (so old school now), I realised the power of being able to see through the eyes of the child.

I could see what he was thinking about and the curiosity he had when he had the freedom to explore with the technology.  Image
