Hello @Marissa Kleckner
Which things available in your classroom?
Kids are greatest teacher
So let them teach something and record it and show them their talent
I continue to create authentic projects with my students that are hands on and developmentally appropriate but then use the technology to enhance their learning and understanding of concepts.
For one project my Ss had to write a part from either the B, M, or E of a story we read, illustrate that scene and then come up with what dialog they wanted a character to converse in all one paper first. Using Chatterpix the children then published their story and made their illustrations come alive while working on fluency and reading their own writing.
I have also used Stitch to support my Ss when they created a project to label the parts of a flower following their creation. They took a picture of it, added arrows, and then added the labels.
I am very cautious and make sure that the Ss are still using hands on developmental approaches to their learning but technology is enhancing their learning, not replacing their learning.
I mostly use iPads within my classroom. If you have any specific questions you can email me @ firstname.lastname@example.org
This may depend on the type of equipment you have access to!! I personally enjoy the Smart Board and I Pads. There are many websites available that support many needs in the classroom. If you are working with ELLs in the upper grades, technology will be your best friend. It is very use to make connections and build their background knowledge. Document cameras are also handy tools (ELMO's).
Bringing technology to the classroom is a great responsibility which requires digital ettiquette and e-safety guidelines for the learners and teachers.
I video certain activities (1-3 minutes at most) and then play it back for the class to review & discuss. I prompt them to begin, and remind them to tell what they noticed and keep comments respectful. They take over and lead discussions. I teach dance in a K-5 school and everyone enjoys this activity. It helps if you can project the video on a whiteboard, but huddling around the teacher's computer also works!
