Transcript

  • 1. TeChNoLoGy In ThE cLaSsRoOm!
    Brenda Kay Brooks
  • 2. Why is it hard to use technology in the classroom?
    It takes time and research to be prepared to teach it effectively
    Some schools do not have the resources
    New technology can be confusing and hard to figure out
    Internet use requires a lot of prep time before using…discussing plagarism and safety are two important things!
  • 3. Does that mean we shouldn’t use it????
    NO, of course not!
    But, it is important to address all of your concerns first!
    A teacher can never be too prepared when it comes to using technology!
    It can add so much hands on and engagement to a lesson!
  • 4. My students love PHOTOSTORY!
    I introduced myself to the classroom by presenting them with a Photostory about myself!
    I wanted them to do the same! I wanted them to create a Photostory so I could get to know them more!
    They loved adding sound, text, and music. Four student even used this program for their final book reports!
  • 5. PHOTOSTORY

    Teachers can make practice calendars to get comfortable with the tool
  • 7. PUZZLEMAKER
    Create your own puzzles, crosswords, criss-crosses, and much more!I use this for spelling because you use your own lists!!! Great to practice writing and seeing the words
    Free to use! BUT, you have the option of buying the CR-ROM with lots of extra features
    Teachers can also use pre-made puzzles on the classroom. Kids will be engaged!

  • 9. YOU TUBE

    Teachers must view full videos to make sure it’s appropriate
    Videos are public
    Classes have the opportunity to post videos
  • 10. TECHNOLOGY…
    Who knew there was so much technology out there that you, as a teacher, can use in the classroom!
    What’s great about technology is that some times, students can work at their own pace. Students are all at different levels! They can work at their own pace.
    When I did PowerPoints on the Revolutionary War, they all ranged to their abilities. Some were simple, and other were very complex!!!
  • 11. SLIDESHARE!
    I made a video for my class about all that we did. If I had known about slideshare … I could have given them all a link, instead of saving it to all of their flash drives! It pays to get in tune to all the technology. It really can make things easier!
    Upload PowerPoint's and PDF presentations
    Find groups that look interesting to you
  • 12. TECHNOLOGY
    Take advantage of all the tools that are you there for teachers?
    What do you have to lose?
    You have only something to gain!!! Students will benefit from the hands-on, collaborative, visual learning!!!
