Digital Youth Portrait : Luis

In this video he talks about how much he loves technology and how he uses it to connect to his friends and family and in his education. He goes on to talk about how their parents who are from mexico never used technology except for an ATM. He is involved in a program called tech wizards and in this he uses pretty much every aspect of technology. In this group they do projects like videos or community projects. I hope when i am a teacher we have a technology program like this for students. I think it is important for students to be able to use technology not only for communication but for things like presentations. It gets them involved with things they are interested in and gets them to use their skills in research. Luis did a project where he would check the conditions of the trees and report them to the city. This can open so many oppertunities for students and it did for Luis. I love that these students were teaming up with younger grades and teaching them how to build robots that is amazing to me and it is something i might try to do one day.
