We read an interesting article the other day, “New study: Students use technology everywhere but school” that makes the point that today’s students are so connected in every aspect of their day, except when they are in the classroom. In the classroom, many educators roll back the clocks and try to maintain a technology free space.
For so many students, technology is a natural extension of who they are and how they learn. Maybe, instead of expecting students to learn without technology, we should develop thoughtful ways of integrating technology into our student’s day. We’ve brainstormed a few ideas for educators grappling with this issue.
Each of these technology tools has the power to enhance learning while seamlessly integrating cost-effective technology. We’d love to hear from you –would these tools make a difference in your classroom? How do you incorporate Ed Tech tools? Share in the comments section below!
