Post # 11
I was very surprised at the number of resources available for classroom use. Using technology in the classroom doesn't seem so intimidating anymore, and I actually learned a lot more than I thought I would!! I think that the students will be more engaged in learning if I incorporate more technology especially using the Ipads. One of my favorite tools was just using Skype to communicate with a local weatherman. The kids were so engaged and excited that it made learning about weather so much more exciting that just reading from a book. I also loved all the apps available for the Ipads/touches. The kids really love those and there seems to be something for every topic that we teach.
