It is that time of the year. As lesson plans are beginning to be written, one needs to think about the use of technology. Technology should not be used for technology sake, but for the best way to teach and engage the students. It is great to use technology in the classroom and the students love it. Ask yourself if another method would work better to teach the concept. I am not writing to say don’t use technology. I love technology in the classroom. I am saying that sometimes other methods work better. Always remember when using technology that sometimes things happen beyond your control. When the system is not working you can always get out books and paper. At least we don’t have to chisel slate tablets! Have a great school year. I will have some tips soon.
