Technology For The Greater Good - Bonlee Elementary Residency

"Technology is the pursuit of life by means other than life."   -Bernard Stiegler

We are having fun at Bonlee Elementary School in Chatham County, North Carolina this week!  

Over the past few months, the fifth grade students have interviewed Mayor John Grimes of Siler City and Mayor Cindy Perry of Pittsboro for their thoughts on how technology has changed the county.  

The students transcribed those interviews to create a script over the past week. We also incorporated technology into the artistic process, using it to record interviews, type the script, create projections, amplify the actors, and coordinate the choreography. We discovered that technology is everywhere. We discovered that not all technology is digital.  We discovered that sometimes it is difficult to know whether technology rules over us or we rule over technology.

Throughout this process, students have learned that working on assembly lines, typing letters, processing water from a chicken plant and launching a r…

Wrights of Passage Entertains and Enlightens Sampson County Students



One by one, a group of students from Butler Avenue School walked up to a microphone sitting just below the stage at the Sampson County Agri-Exposition Center. The students were all part of one of eight performances of the Class Acts-Sampson CenterStage Performing Arts Series. Thursday’s performance, “Wrights of Passage,” was presented to third- and fourth-grade students from across Sampson County. It was the story of the passion and focus of the Wright Brothers, who wanted to prove man could fly. During their portrayal of the brothers, an abstract replica of the famous flyer came to life on the stage. The students were all part of the cast, reading segments of the script and helping tell the story. “I really liked the way the actors involved the students in the play,” Butler Avenue School’s AIG teacher Christie Tyndall said. “They had cards for them to read and the actor met with the students prior to the play starti…
