Does the thought of using technology in your classroom give you a headache? Stop. Take a breath. It doesn't have to be complicated. Technology is a great way to change up the routine and engage your students. Make a goal to try something new every week, something small. Below is a list of some ideas that you can use this week that are simple to do:
-show a YouTube video to the class
-sign up for laptop cart and give the students time to play games.
-use a PowerPoint presentation to introduce a new topic.
-use Kidspiration to make a graphic organizer with the class
-let a student show you how to do something on the computer
-get the daily weather forecast online for morning meeting
-use Google Earth with your Flat Stanley project
