If I won, I wouldn’t quit my job either. Here’s why.
I love teaching and I have regularly poured my own money into my classroom. Imagine what I could do with just a fraction of that jackpot.
I would turn my classroom into a completely paperless zone. I would buy every student in my class a laptop or a tablet computer. I would also get them a stylus pad so they could still do some handwriting right on their computers.
I would give them tools such as video cameras, digital cameras, electronic drums, musical instruments, samplers and drum machines, and, of course, a full DJ set.
I would have them creating short movies, podcasts, songs, stories, photo essays, and much more.
I would give them private and secure websites so they could create an online portfolio of all of their work over the course of the year.
It would be an amazing school year and one that my students surely would never forget.
