Textbooks can’t keep up when information changes as fast as technology allows. That’s why Shawn Gregg, a ninth-grade science teacher at Fruita 8–9 School, adapted his teaching techniques to keep up. Last year, his students viewed real-time geological data online and screened minutes-old footage of the Haiti earthquake to study plate tectonics. He regularly looks up information on the Internet to stay more current than many printed materials now can and, when possible, he incorporates into the learning experience the devices students have grown up with, such as cell phones. “I try to keep things as current and up-to-speed as possible,” Gregg said.
