I frequently hear parents talking about the perils of today's technology and no doubt those concerns are real. But, this past weekend Lily and my sister proved that technology is a valuable educational tool.
Lily was having some questions about her math assignment and after some failed attempts on my part, we decided to call in the professional. My sister is a Calculus teacher and we knew she could help Lily with her math.
We called her up via Facetime and they went to work solving those Algebra problems. It was a great way to use the technology for good. And, I loved the interaction between my very smart sister and my very smart daughter. So great!
