In today's technologically advanced society, I have taken sequential steps in integrating technology in my classroom to engage my middle school students! Enjoy viewing this timeline as it outlines my journey as a 21st century digital educator!
As part of a school-wide legendary Florida unit, students read about Florida natives and created avatars using Voki. They embedded their Voki and first-person summaries on a blog to share with their peers. http://www.voki.com/Voki_for_education.php
After learning about eInstuction's CPS clickers, I was able to acquire a set from the media center and increase student engagement! Students LOVE clicking in their answers and having instant feedback. www.einstruction.com
I checked out the Epson document camera from the Media Center and realized how useful it was! I was able to place any document under the camera and project it. This was a very good visual strategy for ESOL students!
