While reading through recent community contributions on Free-Reading, I came across a Free-Reading entry by Karen Fasimpaur with links to her blogs. I was particularly impressed by Mobile Musings–A blog that contains many entries one how to incorporate technology (especially mobile technology) into the classroom. Check out her entry “Mini movies for learning sight words.”
For those of you looking for additional easy and fun ways to incorporate technology into the literacy classroom, the Apple Learning Interchange has some awesome ideas! For example, the activity “Reading Fluency with iPods and GarageBand” helps teachers track student fluency progression throughout the school year. Furthermore, by participating in this lesson, students will:
- “Increase reading fluency level”
- “Increase reading comprehension and understanding of the story”
- “Understand music genre”
- “ESL students will learn how language is used in fluid way”
Thanks Carol Anne McGuire from Imperial Elementary School for sharing this lesson on the Apple Learning Interchange!
