"NoodleTools, Blogger, YouTube, and Nings: How is Technology Giving Us Wings?" (Part 3)
CAPSO 2011 Session E29: "NoodleTools, Blogger, YouTube, and Nings: How is Technology Giving Us Wings?" (Part 3)
Daniel Gregory & Cheri Gregory
Technology takes teaching to a whole new level.
Curious about how other teachers are using technology? We’ll demonstrate how we use numerous technology tools and a plethora of programs, websites, and services in our Math/Religion, and English classrooms.
Interested in offering multiple-intelligence / brain-based learning / differentiated instruction options for your students? We’ll explore the steps we go through to develop a variety of technology-based “project” options that allow students to work in their areas of personal strengths/interests while also meeting rigorous curricular requirements.
Toying with implementing a class blog, discussion forum, or content management system? We’ll look at advantages to and methods for adding asynchronous learning components to traditional face-to-face classes. And we’ll discuss the vital role teachers now play in helping students practice proper online etiquette and responsible virtual citizenship.
And we’ll acknowledge the dark side to technolgy as we consider the very real dangers of allowing technology to take us “too close to the sun.”
