Rachel Solomon's insight:

I think this is a really good article because it is written by a teacher, and he explains certain pieces of technology that "changed his teaching practice." This article could be very helpful to current teachers, as well as aspiring ones. Technology is very important now in our society and is becoming increasingly important in the classroom. It is important for teachers to know how to utilize all of these different pieces of technology.

"Why Johnny Can't Add Without a Calculator" is explaining why sometimes using tools such as a calculator is actually damaging our education because we're thoughtlessly pressing buttons without actually thinking through the steps and understanding the concepts.

It allows students to communicate with an audience and do something different for once. Kids love expressing themselves and I think this is a great method!
