6 Truths About Technology in Education by A.J. Juliani

Some food for thought…

“Technology plays an interesting role in student ownership. That device in their pocket has all the information in the world. It can connect them to anyone, allow for collaboration, and be used for a variety of innovative purposes. As teachers, we have to embrace the notion that technology can open up a world of learning opportunities, and then give our students the chance to own those opportunities.” –  A.J. Juliani

Virtual Building Tour at Lincoln

5th grade students prepared a walking tour of Lincoln School and its surroundings to highlight changes that occurred throughout the years.  The students photographed, edited, recorded student audio, created QR codes and assembled the brochure.  The QR Codes on the brochure can be scanned to hear the students speak about specific landmarks.  Students then helped to create a Google Slide presentation from the brochure.  All were invited to view the virtual building tour created for Lincoln School’s Centennial day.

Nonfiction Padlet in 1st Grade

Mrs. Macken and Mrs. Bakos shared student nonfiction reading on a Padlet wall. Students were practicing fluency while sharing facts to peers. Parents were invited to visit the Padlet wall (click “wall” and enter the password: Caldwell to view). Our plan is to have students listen to the recordings and learn how to comment while sharing new information learned from listening.Screen Shot 2015-11-10 at 9.30.27 AM
