I am inspired, also! It would be fantastic to have such wonderful technology in the classroom. The children at this school really seemed to love taking part in all aspects of the technology fair and learning through technology in the classroom. I also found it very interesting to note that future jobs haven't even been invented, yet. It will be interesting to see what the future has in store for us!

What a great way at looking at students. They were so engaged in everything they were doing. You have inspired me to become more of a risk taker myself. Maybe if I take more risks my students will follow in my footsteps. Thanks for the inspiration.

Using technology to understand how the brain learns

I am so impressed with this school. I can't believe all of the activites that they incorporate for their students. It is great that Key Largo touches on all types of learners. I found it interesting that the teacher dimmed the lights for hyperactive students; that is something so simple that I have never thought about. It must be nice having an administrator that allows you to focus on engaging students rather than the results of testing. Also, I admire the fact that these teachers are risk takers. Education is such an important part of a person's life, and I feel sometimes as educators we don't take enough risks to see what truly works. I would love to try the brain gym exercises as well. It is nice to know students get to make healthy foods, landscape and care for plants, and participate in WWKLS. This is more of what students want rather than learning from textbooks about content irrelevant to them. It is obvious that students really do "experience the joy of learning" at Key Largo.

Haha! I am an 8th grader there in 2008 right now! There have been a lot of changes there, trust me. But the technology use hasn't. It's still a 5 star school, and the teachers there are extremely into what they teach, so...

Yep. I recommend this school to anyone who lives in South Florida. Very good at what they do there, and the new building they made is amazing!

Something I do there right now can be seen at KLSRacing.tk . It's a small project I'm working on... =D
