VIDEO-The White House Film Festival

A couple months ago, we asked students all across the country to tell us about the technology in their classrooms.

We asked them to tell us why technology is so important, and how it will change the educational experience for kids in the future. They stepped up to the challenge in a big way: We received more than 2,500 official entries.

These students brought us into their classrooms, homes, and backyards. They introduced us to their teachers, to their robots, and to imaginary characters that they dreamed up. They showed us how they learn.
