Teaching with Technology
Teaching with technology is so NOT my thing. It doesn't come naturally to me, I feel like it takes my kids weeks to complete simple projects, and I generally can't find a way to easily teach it. BUT, luckily, it IS my fabulous friend Andrea Keller's thing. That woman lives and breathes technology--even before she was our technology specialist. After creating parade floats for each of the 50 states, Andrea taught my kids to create podcasts describing the physical appearance of their float and now they are making "commercials" using a variety of apps to showcase the state they studied. (Have I told you how awesome my friend Andrea is?!) The best part is that I get to still pull small groups for reading intervention and she pulls another small group to work with technology. Win, Win! I can't wait to add links to some of their projects and podcasts AND to show you their parade floats...stay tuned!
