Tool # 9
The technology must be tied to the objective in order for the students to essentially use the technology as a learning tool. Technology is the vehicle by which the given objective will be mastered.
Holding students accountable for the stations will ensure that they stay on task. Students have to understand that the invaluable opportunity that they have in using these tools must not be taken for granted.
I like Thinkfinity and Learning Games for Kids. Students can use these websites for self-paced learning activities. In addition, some of the apps/ websites have the capability to monitor progress from your personal teacher workstation.
Skype, iTalk are a few of the apps I would like to use as a part of my lessons.
My students could also use the whiteboard app. This could be a fun way for students to work in groups and collaborate together.
