  • The continued development of technology tools for education in the last 28 years has been nothing short of amazing.
  • Educational technology has so many definitions, but the bottom line is it makes teaching more engaging and interesting for our students.
  • To think that I had to use a typewriter with correction tape until I got to high school is quite funny. Getting to use an electronic typewriter was an upgrade.
  • Through the rest of high school and the first few years of attempting college, I avoided technology completely. I refused to learn how to email until it was made a requirement in my first interactive TV course in the fall of 2004. I also took cable classes and completed my bachelor’s degree almost entirely online.
  • This is our Promethean Board which we named Rocky. The boys are testing their alphabet knowledge together by playing with a game a downloaded from Promethean Planet for free. I also have an ActiView (Elmo) that I use to read small books, share the students work, and do activities together.
  • I don’t actually own an iPad or anything like it, but feel it would be a wonderful addition if money was not a factor.
  • Sometimes I feel like others in my profession frown upon the integration of technology because some aspects of its use conflict with some beliefs about how children learn best.
