Technology in the Classroom at BMS
Great ideas from your ITRT - Heidi Overfelt
SOLs start after Spring Break. Turn off electronic devices? NO!
Not all electronic devices hook up to the internet!
Let's find out what you can use to review for SOLs in your classroom....
SmartBoard Games for whole classroom review:
To go to Smart Exchange: http://exchange.smarttech.com
Want to be inspired to use CPS Clickers and Mobis? Go to this student made video promoting einstruction (and be amazed at what these students could do for a contest!)
Watch it in action in this short video:
Here's a great list:
- Pass the Past : produced in conjunction with VDOE for SOL review, this app focuses on the SOL history tests by grade level
- Master the Math : also produced in conjunction with VDOE for SOL review, this app focuses on the SOL math tests
- Tellegami/iMovie/Educreations : student made videos can be created and used to illustrate key ideas and then shown to the class for review
- PicCollage : make digital posters on review subjects using photos and text. Combine the images into a powerpoint to show to the class for review
So don't turn off all technology when you turn off the internet!
Here is the remaining schedule for PD classes this year:
Wednesday, April 30 : App Explorer: Play around with Digital Posters on the ipad with
Pic Collage, Skitch and Doodle Buddy
Wednesday, May 14 : App Explorer: Play around with Digital Productions on the ipad with Educreations, Book Creator and iMovie
IN the meantime...
