Don't be afraid of technology!

We are blessed with an abundance of technology in our schools. Don't be afraid to try to use it. Challenge yourself to use one new resource a week.

Also, don't be afraid to ask for help. We are surrounded by teachers that would be willing to lend a hand.

"It is important to remember that educational software, like textbooks, is only one tool in the learning process. Neither can be a substitute for well-trained teachers, leadership, and parental involvement."– Keith Kreuger
Top 10 Reasons to Use Technology in Education: iPad, Tablet, Computer, Listening Centers

Here are some ideas

Use technology to assess...

"Teachers need to integrate technology seamlessly into the curriculum instead of viewing it as an add-on, an afterthought, or an event."– Heidi Hayes-Jacobs

Use technology to reinforce concepts...

Take a virtual field trip...

"If we teach today as we taught yesterday, we rob our children of tomorrow."--John Dewey
