Lynbrook's Virtual Vikings Advance Smart Adoption of Classroom Technology

Lynbrook's Virtual Vikings Advance Smart Adoption of Classroom Technology | LHS News | Scoop.it

From the website

 

"How can students support the smart adoption of tech tools in the classroom? And how can they help teachers be more comfortable with--and rethink--the role of technology in teaching?

 

"Angela Estrella is working on a solution. As the media teacher at Lynbrook High School in San Jose, her job is to ensure that students and teachers are on the same page when it comes to classroom technologies. She finds herself at the crossroads between two groups that can be literally decades apart when it comes to tech savviness. “Technology has changed what it means to be a librarian,” Estrella says. “It’s not just dealing with books and inventory. Now the librarian is expected to be on top of media and technology, and help others be comfortable with it.”

 

"So at the beginning of the 2012 school year, Estrella raised a mini army of those who are most likely and willing to help: a group she dubbed “the Virtual Vikings.” Technically, it’s an elective class for upperclassmen with a free period; the Vikings work as Estrella’s TAs. The subject, however, is a serious matter. Their mission, according to the recruitment flyer: to “research, advance and aid in the development and use of technology at Lynbrook.” Or, as this promo video shows, to save the day when technology is literally falling apart in the classroom."

In most high-school and college classes, failure is penalized. But without trial and error, there is no innovation. Amanda Alonzo, a 32-year-old teacher at Lynbrook High School in San Jose, Calif., who has mentored two Intel Science Prize finalists and 10 semifinalists in the last two years—more than any other public school science teacher in the U.S.—told me, "One of the most important things I have to teach my students is that when you fail, you are learning." Students gain lasting self-confidence not by being protected from failure but by learning that they can survive it..."
