Educational Technology

My Philosophy on Educational Technology

As an educator I love finding different ways to get and keep the attention of my students.  One of the ways I do this is to use technology to enhance my lessons.  Technology has proven to be an excellent way to get the attention of my students.  However, using technology as a "bell or whistle" is not good enough.  I work hard to use technology as a tool to teach my students both traditional topics and new topics.  "Integrating Technology in the Classroom" is the title of the Master's degree I earned.  True integration is something that I strive for when using technology.

A few of the technologies that we will use  in my classroom are:
  1. SMARTBoard
  2. ChromeBooks
  3. Google Drive
  4. Google Apps
  5. BrainHoney
My goal is to use technology as a "hook" to help my students learn a variety of skills and topics of varying difficulties.  Additionally, cyber citizenship and internet safety will be taught and stressed throughout the school year,
