"In teaching others we teach ourselves"  - Proverb

The technology toolbox, is a way to help keep students connected and also allows for parents to be a part of the classroom experience as well. Here are a few of my favorite resources to use within the classroom.

Skype

@amandabeth125

Using Skype in the classroom is an extremely useful tool. It can allow students to be exposed to people from all over the world, whether it be through a Mystery Skype, or a Virtual Field Trip. Skype can open doors for students that they never thought possible. So let's connect!

 

Padlet...

Here you can find an example of a  Padlet that I created that showcases many ways this tool can be used in the classroom, if you have any ideas please feel free to add them!

Kahoot

Kahoot is an online quiz resource that students can use with their iPad or cell phones with responses being recorded in real time.

Here are two examples of Kahoot that I have made and played with classes.

This Kahoot  was created to work on students spelling words for the week, some of the possible answers, were a different response to the previous pre-test.

This Kahoot, was about Matt Miller's book "Ditch That Textbook" chapters 29-33. This was a simulated Kahoot made with our college classroom.

This website is perfect for giving a creative spin on presentations. This allows for you educational materials to come to life, through the use of animation. In the 21st century, why would you want to stick to just powerpoint?
