This video will seal the deal! Ignore the overly dramatic music. Just read the stats about youth and technology, as well as the ideas for how to incorporate podcasts, ipods, and cellphones into your lessons!
Teaching tips, technology tools and links to free literacy resources on the web
A Not So Different Place is a blog filled with inspiring posts and links to resources that not only help build student literacy and motivation, but technology skills as well. The author of this blog is Nancy:
I’ve been teaching in an elementary gifted program for 20 years. I’m a wife and mom of three grown boys; a lawyer, an engineer, and a philosopher! I’ve also done technology presentations in my district, state and nationally. I’m about three years from retirement, but think I have a lot to share.
Thinking about starting a class blog project? Check out Nancy’s post titled Blogs for Elementary Kids. To see her students’ blogs, click here. How about incorporating the use of moodle, wikis, LetterPop, and more into your classes this week? Nancy is sure to have ideas and resources to share. Thanks Nancy!
