The End of the School Year is Almost Here!

The school year is almost over and I wanted to share some ideas to get you thinking about how you are going to be using technology in your classroom for next year.

  1. Haiku was introduced this year, what are some ways you would like to expand and/or change your use of Haiku for your classes next year?
  2. How are you networking (ie: "Twitter," "Google + Communities," "Attending Conferences," working with me, etc) to build your knowledge and get ideas about using more technology in the classroom next year?
  3. Is there a unit that you have done with your class where you would like to use more purposeful integration of the device and for students to use higher order thinking skills? When you think about your goals for next year, I would love to help you use more technology in the classroom. I am available to sit down with you one-on-one, demo a technology tool to your students or observe you teaching a lesson and give some tech pointers. Feel free to email me
