Technology Lesson Ideas

I also really liked this article.  It gave 10 very specific lessons that teachers can use to incorporate technology into their classroom.  I liked the idea of a virtual field trip.  We learned about this in Dr. Gillin’s class last year.  It is a great idea because classrooms don’t always have the funds to go on a real field trip.  However, if classrooms have computers or iPads, the students can go on a digital field trip.  I also really liked the idea of Twitter Tuesday.  The students could write a short journal entry on Twitter every Tuesday (or any day).  This a great way for the students to communicate with each other and share their ideas.  As we’ve discussed, Twitter can be a difficult thing to allow your students to use, but it is something interesting to think about.
