No kidding! Web 2.0 in Grade School

I was really charmed by this video on Web 2.0 and other technology in schools.

These kids created a video that competed with more than 250 others from across the USA, and they won the $30,000 grand prize in the kindergarten to 5th grade group. The school won a well-deserved technology makeover from eInstruction for this entry.

I'm assuming the teacher wrote the lyrics, but it gets me right in the heart to hear them sing: "All the cool school projects that we do, they go right up on our class wiki."

Wikis + education = SO MANY POSSIBILITIES. And these kids are living proof. They are young, and they seem to get it. And their teacher so clearly understands the value of technology for her teaching, organization and each of those kids' futures.

As they sing, "Web 2.0 is where it's at." Phenomenal.
