Charette in ActionDoug Johnson over at the Blue Skunk blog took some liberty in his recent writing and revised Laura Numeroff’s classic, If You Give a Mouse a Cookie.

Read his version and run over and leave him some love in the comment section:

Give a teacher a computer

Give a teacher a computer,
And he will want Internet access.

Give a teacher Internet access,
And she’ll most likely want an e-mail account.

Give a teacher e-mail,
And he’ll just want learning games and
more computers in her classroom. And tech support.

Give a teacher learning games,
And she’ll want streaming video.

Give a teacher videos,
And he’ll insist on an LCD projector permanently mounted in his classroom (with speakers).

Give a teacher a projector,
And she’ll ask for an interactive white board (and training and time for collaboration and resources to use with it).

Give a teacher an IWB,
Then he wants a student response system, a wireless slate, and a document camera (and more support).

Give a teacher tech,
And then she wants all her kids to have it too. And the skills to use it well.
