Using Technology to Improve Instruction
Transcript of Using Technology to Improve Instruction
Ok, so that may be an exaggeration, but let's learn some technology tips that allow us get as close to it as possible!
There are literally thousands of ideas and resources online for teachers. These are some of my favorite!
There are hundreds of different websites and programs that help you create stunning resources for your classroom. These are just a handful of them!
Pinterest is a collection of pictures from all over the internet. You can find ideas for nearly every content area on it, and you can "pin" (or save) ideas that you like for future use!
Classroom Freebies is a website that multiple teachers from grades Pre-K to 12 contribute to. They create various resources for their classroom and share them on this website for free.
Smart Exchange houses free SmartBoard lessons for almost every content area. You can pretty much find a lesson for everything here!
Teq is another great website that has a ton of free SmartBoard lessons. Most of the lessons on the website were created by teachers.
We Give Books has a huge collection of books online, many by popular authors. You can use this website to read a book to your class from the SmartBoard!
Spelling City does most of the work for you! All you have to do is create a custom list of words and it'll input those words into games so your students can practice them!
Voki is so much fun! You can create a talking avatar to introduce your class to a new topic or to ask them questions for review!
Tagxedo is a really fun website that creates word collages for you in any shape that you want. You can make a collage of sight words and play "I Spy" or you can use it while brainstorming with the kids!
VoiceThread is a really fun way to make a quick presentation for your students or showcase your students work. You just insert your photos and record your voice on top of it!
Prezi is the website that I made this presentation on! It lets you zoom around and hide text and images within other images. The kids just love it!
How do you think that you could use these technologies in your classroom?
If you have any questions while you play around with these websites and programs, please feel free to leave a comment on this Prezi and I'll get back to you!
