What are your reflections about using media in education?

I think it can be a great motivator for engaging students. It is taking time to incorporate lessons into the classroom and will be a gradual process. There is so much I want to accomplish with my classes and never enough time to do it all!

What is one thing about the Omaha Science Media Project that you'd share with other teachers?

I'd recommend checking it out. It won't "fit" for everyone, but many teachers can find application for Media in their classes.
