Would you like a free E Book filled with superb, cutting-edge tech tips for teachers?
I'm honored to be included in this generous E Book, where you'll find many ways to incorporate tech into the classroom, including:
- Use an ipad to snap a picture of the whiteboard, and allow students to study it at their own pace.
- Use safeshare.tv. to copy YouTube links and convert them into watchable videos in the class.
- Use gmail's "translate message" to send notes to parents in a different language.
And my own tip on how to relax in the 21st century:
When a child needs time out, lead them gently to the "cloud" where they can put on headphones and click on the MP3 icon on a desktop.
Let them float away to the sound of a soothing voice counting, with a relaxing instrumental and hypnotic beat. They will return refreshed and ready...and knowing their numbers.
Also, open a desktop folder of each child's favorite photos, including photos of themselves smiling and focused, and let them scroll through for inspiration.
That, and much more. Enjoy!
