    • Integrating Technology
      Allow for student input
      Try new things – stick with what works

      Teach the technology and the content
      Show off the results
    • iMovie
      Use as an alternative to PowerPoint
      Great to use in all subject areas
      Your students can be as creative as they want
      Don’t be afraid to allow several days of work time
      The projects take time – but they are worth it
      Give time to plan before creating the iMovie
    • iMovie
      Project ideas – be creative
      Commercials – describe any concept in 1 minute or less
      Infomercials – describe any concept in a longer format
      Movie Trailers – easy to use in iMovie ‘11
      Highlight Videos – of a person’s accomplishments
      News Programs – use the green screen to film your news “on location”

      QR Code Reader apps
      Search the App Store on your smartphone or iPod Touch for free reader apps
    • QR Code Scavenger Hunts
      Great to use as a review activity – alone or in teams
      Link the code to a website
      Students find important information about a topic
      Post the codes in your classroom or around the school
      Great educational use of smartphones and iPods
      Make sure this fits within your school’s policy on using phones/iPods

    • Current Events Blog
      I use Blogger – there are many sites that you could use
      I will post articles that pertain to my subject area
      Students comment on the article – inside or outside of class
      We use the comments to start in-class discussions
      This is not up and running yet – email issues
