Technology in your Classroom

Did you know there are several different ways to incorporate Technology in your classroom? You can get more students engaged and improve collaboration.

  1. Video Streaming-videos in your classroom can help students with clarity.
  2. Play Games-students love to play games and with resources like iPads, tablets, or computers you can keep your students involved with educational games.
  3. Blogging-having your students blog is a great way to allow them to showcase all of their hard work.
  4. Podcasts-this is a great tool for students to study or for students that were absent and are trying to catch up on work.
