Technology In The Classroom

  1. 1. TECHNOLOGY IN THE CLASSROOM Mrs. Stone’s 3 rd grade class
  2. 2. Shapes In Life <ul><li>I wanted to do a lesson showing the class that shapes are everywhere all around us. </li></ul><ul><li>So I took the students out in small groups and let them each take pictures with my digital camera of shapes that they found around the school and school yard. </li></ul>
  3. 3. How Did They Like It? <ul><li>The students LOVED this activity! They got very involved in actively seeking out different shapes. </li></ul><ul><li>Every child knew how to take pictures on a camera, so we did not have to spend any time teaching them about the technology. </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>Some of the children weren’t exactly the best at getting the whole object in the frame. </li></ul>Rectangle
  5. 5. <ul><li>This was actually one girl’s bike. </li></ul>Circle
  6. 6. <ul><li>This was an exciting find! </li></ul>Pentagon
  7. 7. <ul><li>The students were excited to realize that the school was covered entirely in rectangles. </li></ul>Rectangle
  8. 8. <ul><li>Another great find! </li></ul>Octagon
  9. 9. Student Use of Technology <ul><li>The students were actively involved in using the digital camera. They were the ones who took the pictures of the shapes. </li></ul><ul><li>This technology helped to promote active learning. </li></ul>
  10. 10. Technology Use is Essential <ul><li>The digital camera was an add on to the real learning activity. It helped the children be more excited about finding shapes around the school. </li></ul><ul><li>The technology was a motivational factor for this lesson. I wanted to make a class book about the shapes that we found, so I used to pictures to do that. </li></ul>
  11. 11. Focus on Learning Task <ul><li>Using the digital camera really helped the students focus on looking for shapes since they were only allowed to use the camera when taking a picture of a shape. </li></ul><ul><li>Using the digital camera was definitely helpful in achieving the learning task. </li></ul><ul><li>Since it took very little time for the students to learn how to use the digital camera, the camera was very beneficial. </li></ul>
  12. 12. Added Value <ul><li>This lesson would not be easier to do without technology. I could have the students draw pictures of what they saw and create a book from that, but taking pictures is easier and more effective. </li></ul><ul><li>Technology added value to this lesson because it helped to focus the children and get them more excited. </li></ul><ul><li>I was able to make a class book and a class slide show by using the digital camera. I could not have done that without this technology. </li></ul>
