I’ve been an educator for the past 16 years. The first 14 were in public school districts where my experiences included being a classroom teacher (elementary and middle school) and a high school instructional technology specialist. The past two years I’ve been an educational consultant, working with clients on developing curriculum for diverse educational settings including online, for K-12 and adult audiences.
I have been toying with sharing my love for creating “outside the box” instruction and have decided to start creating educational materials for teachers to utilize. I know once the school year has started, it is so hard to find the time to create something imaginative to use in your classroom. I hope to fufill this need for you everyone. Working with teachers across all content areas was what I did for my last 8 years in the public school setting. I miss it and would like to share new ideas with a new “staff”, the educators in need at large!
I will be offering these resources through the Teachers Pay Teachers site and am offering my first resource for free. I have created the 2015 Technology Integration Quick List and it is available for FREE download here!
What is the 2015 Technology Integration Quick List?
It is a 2-page quick reference card that lists some of the best (and my favorite!) educational technology resources around for 2015. This list will help you easily select technology integraiton tools when you are developing your lesson plans and units. I’ve selected tools that can be used across all content areas. Most of the resources are free to use unless otherwise noted. What makes this reference card unique is that I’ve categorized the tools based off of P21’s Framework for 21st Century Learning including resources for creativity and innovation, information literacy, crtical thinking, collaboration, and more! I plan on revising it each year as new tools become available and more robust.
Who should use it?
Whether you are a novice or an expert at integrating technology, this quick list should be handy in easily accessing a few ideas to use with your students. I advise it is suited best for those teaching 4th grade and higher. It can be used for teachers of all content areas and all settings including homeschool teachers, private school, and public school.
Where can I get it?
You can download it from my Teachers Pay Teachers site for FREE!!!
One more thing…
If you like the quick reference card and find it useful, I kindly ask that you share the love and comment/rate the product!
Let me know how the quick list works for you and if it makes things easier this year!
Best wishes for a great school year!
