My best teaching moment. To set the stage, this was in 2007, before Chromebooks and GAFE. Students were working in the computer lab. In the middle of working, two students exclaimed, “Wait. I can do this when I grow up?!” My students were working on mapping volcano and earthquake locations using ESRI GIS mapping software. At the time, I took a risk using mapping software to have investigate these concepts - and I once I heard this comment, I was happy I took this risk. Students were able to work at their own pace, create their maps, and draw conclusions about the concepts of plate tectonics. They created products, they had a choice while I facilitated. The comment from my two students had me completely psyched, in that they realized this wasn’t just an activity on a computer - they were using software that they could become certified in, earn a career in, and apply to virtually every industry - from the sciences to business.
