Digital Dance Class?

 I found out about an innovative use of 24/7 Learning when I picked up my daughter from her dance class yesterday.  Her dance instructor, Stephanie, is a sophomore at OHS but traveled with the high school scholastic team to the Chadron State Scholastic competition yesterday, and therefore had to be absent from teaching her dance classes.  Steph planned ahead and recorded herself teaching the dances in iMovie and had her younger brother deliver her MacBook to the dance studio in time for her classes.  Each of the classes would watch their instructor doing the steps over and over on the laptop screen in between practicing them for real.  With a dance recital right around the corner and small supply of dance instructor substitutes, Steph's ingenuity, resourcefulness, and access to technology benefited a large number of little girls yesterday!
