"Kyle is indeed the vision of a 21st century educator. Kyle regularly uses social networks and new media to solve problems, to share resources, and to develop as a professional. Yet, these new technologies do not consume Kyle. He has achieved, at this very early stage in his career, the ability to balance the affordances of new technologies with thoughtful instructional strategies. He isn’t carried away with the glitter of new tools. Rather, he uses his sharp, critical mind to think deeply about the impact of such tools and both the benefits and drawbacks of their implementation. It is a skill that I have not seen in many tech-savvy, experienced educators, and certainly not in an individual of such limited classroom experience."
