  • Preparing Our Kids for the Future by Diane AustinInst. 6031
  • Our children live in a tech savvy world
    Cell phones
    Video games
    ATM machines
    Computers
  • We need to integrate technology into the classroom
    Teachers and school districts have a responsibility to prepare our students to be productive citizens in society.
  • Reasons to integrate technology
    Increased motivation
    Differentiated instruction
    Authentic problem-solving
    Improves social skills by working in groups
    Computer literacy
  • New hardware and software can easily be integrated
    Interactive SMART boards are replacing white boards and overheads.
  • Glogster (digital posters)
    Students enjoy creating their own unique presentations and it allows the teacher an opportunity to customize projects and build in “choice.”
  • Photo Story
    Students take a series of digital pictures and insert them into the free program, along with narration and/or music. For students who aren’t good with keyboarding or who are tired of Powerpoint – this is a great option!
  • Your students can create a rebus story using the computer
    Highlights has a great interactive website for the rebus story!
  • Why not start today!
    Help is available:
    On-line tutorials
    District workshops
    Ask your colleagues for tips
