Oh my gosh, I absolutely love the teacher's blog that I was assigned! Pardon me if I am overly excited, but I really am. I was a little hesitant to start C4T because I didn't think I would get paired with a teacher that would spark my interest. Pernille Ripp is a phenomenal 5th grade teacher at West Middleton
Mrs. Ripp gives many reasons why she feels that she is a Job Creator. Not in a sense that she provides employment but, she spends the money at various establishments that keeps the economy going.
GREAT post!!! In society we are both CONSUMERS and PRODUCERS. WE consume the goods and services, but we are also producers because we replenish and keep society afloat. The prime example that you gave in the blog which pertained to going to the mall. You are so right because when I go to the mall and spend money, I'm not necessarily putting the money in their pockets per say, but what I am doing is spending money so that the company can profit to make more good and hire MORE people to sell those goods. Everyone in society is a job creator because if there wasn't a need for it, then their wouldn't be job. I am a JOB CREATOR.

Do High-tech Gadgets Improve Learning- What a Dumb Question
Time For Kids is a magazine that Mrs. Ripp uses in her classroom to stay current with events around the world. One headline really stuck out to her which read, "Technology Takeover...Schools Nationwide Are Using Technology to Teach Lessons. But Do High-Tech Gadgets Improve Learning?" At which she immediately thought- what a dumb question! She answered and gave her opinion in a post. This is a topic that starts controversy worldwide. She argues that gadgets has nothing to do with learning but, its has everything to do with how you use it to facilitate effective learning.
