An Addison Elementary student was hospitalized and his teacher, Sherry Ramsdell, wanted to find a way to keep him connected to what was happening in the classroom. It is this kind of stuff that teachers do that anti-teacher pundits don’t see or fail to mention. Her original idea was a good one. She recorded the class wishing him well on her iPad and then she planned to go up to the hospital and have him record a message back. I gave her my iPad and told her to give it to the student and we went over how to use FaceTime. The final product was a magical conversation between a hospitalized classmate and his class on the big screen.
