Technology in the classroom
The future With each year students become more and more technologically inclined. Teachers have to step up their teaching to make it more relevant for students. There is no better way to do this than with technology integration.
Using textbooks is becoming a thing of the past.
Students can now use things such as ebooks or internet articles to get the same information
You can use new technology in your classroom such as:
Ways to integrate
Instead of using worksheets make games for your promethean board
Allow students research time. This is a great way to have them search the internet and make them responsible for their learning.
Find games that match to subject being taught
Allow students to use technology to learn
This helps them have fun while learning.
There are many free games that allow students to have fun and learn.
I’m lost Some teachers struggle with integrating technology because they don’t have the knowledge to use it. Here are some ways to help you: Go to a training See another teacher Learn from your students Find a program on the internet Grab a book to learn about it
Finances If you are thinking that this all sounds terrific but, your school is not financially capable of this then:
Write a grant
Find free websites
Attend trainings that give away trials to internet resources
Get up with the times because technology isn’t going to disappear it’s only going to get bigger and better.
We have to prepare the future generations for their future
