"But I don't want to pay taxes" - my son
Creating this post and project with my son on Book Creator was SO much fun. He got to learn firsthand how to manage a food truck through calculating food prices. That quote he stated though was my favorite highlight. Not just because of the humor, but because it shows me how it didn't only have to be a math lesson. That conversation could have led to a history lesson or debate. Depending who the author is, the answer varies. Although different perspectives are told in a debate platform or through reading each others work, we connect and take into consideration the vast human experiences that can be had that affect the lens of a situation. I did not consider how these platforms could help teachers also learn from each other through social media platforms. Book Creator has a group for teachers on Facebook. These platforms can definitely help connecting, especially post pandemic where students have increased social anxieties and can grow overwhelmed easily.
A main take away is that It doesn't always have to be academic, how these applications are used. Especially as a support role for college students that come from all different backgrounds, this could be valuable in connecting with other students that speak your same language or for communicating with others who are also going through emergencies (i.e. the civil war in Ethiopia).
