Integrating Technology in the Classroom: It Takes More Than Just Having Computers
Technology has become part of the educational process, but too often it is separate and not integrated into the learning experience. Today, Education World offers easy and painless ways to integrate technology into your daily routine. Included: Nineteen activities and nearly 50 Web sites.
Integrating technology into the curriculum is a priority -- if not a mandate -- in most schools today. Most educational technology experts agree, however, that technology should be integrated, not as a separate subject or as a once-in-a-while project, but as a tool to promote and extend student learning on a daily basis. The challenge, of course, is in finding ways to use technology -- and to help students use it -- that don't take time away from core subjects.
For many teachers, a lack of personal experience with technology presents an additional challenge. In order to incorporate technology-based activities and projects into their curriculum, those teachers first must find the time to learn to use the tools and understand the terminology necessary for participation in those projects or activities.
Used properly, however, technology can be a tool for teachers as well as for students. To help teachers new to technology gain experience in using it, and to help tech savvy teachers incorporate technology more fully into their daily routines, Education World offers the following easy ways in which you can seamlessly integrate technology into your daily and weekly classroom routines...

Charging Cart Dos and Don'ts
Do: Model the appropriate way to insert your device in the cart. Don’t assume your students know how to put the device in the cart. Improper storage can damage our devices, plugs, and cart.
Do: Keep your cart keys in a safe place and lock your cart. Until we make a decision, devices will remain in the buildings. It is important to lock your carts. Most of our staff leave our doors wide open at the end of the day. We have many visitors and students that can roam the halls. Please don’t leave your device hanging out either. Feel free to utilize an open slot if you are not going to use it at home.
Do: Make sure your cart is plugged in! This may seem like a “duh” but you would be surprised. The cart cycles every 20 minutes to one of the three surge protectors in the back. There is never a time when all three will be on. In order for any charge to get to devices you must plug in the main box to an outlet. The reset switch should be powered on as well.
Don't: Plug accessory devices in your carts. One way to overload the surge is to plug in outside items such as small refrigerators, microwaves, printers, coffeemakers and other items. Please utilize your cart for the devices only. We do not want to void any warranty or service.
Don't: Plug the cart into a power strip. Per the fire marshal's orders, power strips cannot be plugged in power strips. The charging cart is essentially a giant power strip. Please plug the cart directly into a wall (or floor) outlet.
