Technology in the Classroom

 

kids and tech

SO, my question is, how do we show kids how to do all of this and how do we make it purposeful?

A good place to start is the Teach 2 Inspire website . which provides safe, FREE online resources for educators, along with lesson plans to get your started! The issue of teaching typing skills has become popular recently with all the new PARCC assessments students are required to take. There are some typing apps suggested for you as well.

I am also interested in iPad apps in the classroom, and I found this article 25 ways to use the iPad in the Classroom from Te@chthought to be useful. It helped me decide what apps would be best for my first graders.

Also on Free Technology for Teachers, there was another great article on Technology with a purpose. Worth a read!

Hope this help you get started!
