Technology In Action

I use webquests all the time to teach content in my classroom. Instead of lecturing the students I use technology to help them discover the answers for themselves.

Everyone in the class has a graphing calculator at all times (Desmos.com). No more sharing one set of graphing calculators between multiple teachers or asking students to buy $90 calculators. Students also get instant feedback on homework and tests with forms and spreadsheets.

We took a virtual tour of Pompeii in World History... many of our students will never get the experience to travel and the technology we have allows them to "be there"!

I know that storyboards can be created the "old fashioned" way, but Tracy Otten and I had success with the website www.storyboardthat.com when we used it with our seniors after studying Macbeth. The free version allowed quite a few options, and for the most part, the students seemed to enjoy it!

My comp kids make podcasts that highlight a problem-solution topic regarding the school or community. It's still something that they couldn't create without technology.

I have students look up songs and play a song for class (usually using YouTube) and then they have to create a presentation explaining the lyrics for a literal meaning as well as a deeper (2nd or even 3rd) level of meaning. i.e. analyzing text, in this case song lyrics, for deeper meaning.

Verb conjugation practice online: there is no way I could check that many students' work in the same amount of time as online drills allow. Nearpod with activities: it allows feedback on lessons at whichever intervals I set.
