Teacher Video Challenge: Classrooms in the Digital Age

edWeb.net is organizing a contest for videos to be submitted for possible viewing by the Association of Educational Publishers.  Although it would certainly be nice to win a Flip Video Camera, I'm almost just as excited to imagine my submission being played on the big screen at a major conference. 

It's an exciting time for classroom technology, and I think the publishing community is on the verge of something huge.  Digital textbooks are just around the corner now that the hardware (read: iPad and its soon to be released counterparts) is finally here.  I'm not advocating for a complete shift away from paper textbooks, but I truly think that digital textbooks (full versions, and not just online companions) can make a dramatic impact on student motivation and engagement in the classroom.  View and listen in on my entry below:
