  • EFFECTIVE USE OF TECHNOLOGY IN THE CLASSROOM Mr. Aaron Carn St. Johns County School District
  • INTRODUCTION • As we advance further into the 21st century, technology is becoming more and more integrated into our society. Smart phones are now commonplace, tablets are replacing or substituting for computers and laptops, and social media has become second nature. The rapid and widespread adoption of these technological innovations has completely changed the way we conduct our daily lives, including how knowledge is digested and taught in our classrooms.
  • INTRODUCTION • “Since becoming a teacher, I always knew I wanted to integrate technology into the classroom. Today, I am fully digital. I use technology to supplement lessons, quizzes or even instruction itself. I have yet to collect one paper or grade one test this school year. My students are performing better than ever. GPA and EOC scores are up. It was not easy at first, and it took some trial and error to figure out what actually worked, but using technology is so easy and commonplace nowadays. Every teacher should be effectively using technology in their classrooms.” - Mr. Carn Social Studies Creekside High
