Inspiring Educators Who Inspire Future Leaders
One of the best things about 21st century instruction is the ability of the classroom teacher to “extend learning beyond the classroom.” As someone who understands the value of technology, I truly see the benefits of technology use both inside and outside the classroom. But, I can also understand the challenges that come with a fully integrated technology program (like teachers who have less experience working with technology and schools that lack the financial resources to provide appropriate training for teachers). While I can see and understand the obstacles, I also see the need to continue to provide resources to help build teacher confidence so that we can broaden the academic experience for our students. Some of my favorite tools are: Google Docs, Google Hangouts, paper.li, Scoop it!, Evernote, and Flipboard.
Thanks to the folks at teachthought.com, I’d like to share 6 tips and 18 resources (including several of my favorites) to help enhance student learning through the use of technology. tlb
