Tool # 9

    • The objectives are what we are teaching so the technology should only help to make the objectives better.
    • If we don't hold them accountable then why are we doing the stations/centers/active in the first place. This is how we can view what they are accomplishing at each center.
    • My opinion is you use the technology applications that you are most comfortable doing. There are so many options so I feel you should slow bring them into your lessons so everyone isn't overwhelmed. The SBISD Interactive database has great lessons, apps, and activities that teachers can use to bring more technology into the class. Thinkfinity has some great ways for students to take notes as well.  
    • List two to three apps you found for the iPod Touch/iPad that you can use in your classroom. What do you see that station looking like? How can you hold the students accountable for their time in these stations?
    • This Day in History, Chron.com, & skype are three apps that I found can be useful in the classroom. Stations are challenging in small classrooms with 30 plus students, but students will be able to create material in an interactive way. There will be a rubric and Google Doc that the students can update throughout.
    • The students could use the video camera to create news cast of important events in history to present to the class.
