My first and most-favorite tech item for the classroom is....
HAH! Kidding! Mine is broken, the tape player drawer is hanging off and it's covered in a thick layer of dust. I'm totally kidding about it being my favorite item. But, it gets the job done, right?... ;)
Like I said in my last post, I absolutely LOVE my Promethean Board and sometimes wonder how I taught without it. It allows the kids to get so involved. Love, love, love! I also enjoy browsing different flipcharts on Promethean Planet.
Class Dojo is a pretty neat (free) website, too. It allows you to record their behavior right there on the screen. You can give your student a "positive" or a "negative" and it keeps track of their points and the reasons why the earned/lost a point. Then, you can print out reports. I just found out that you can use your smartphone as a remote, too! Can't wait to do that! Super cute!
I found Pics4Learning over the summer and I'm so excited about using it! I think it'll be a great way to show my kiddos what certain things really look like... rather than just using cutesy clipart. Don't get me wrong, I ADORE clipart... but real pics are good, too! On a sidenote, isn't it creepy how ads pop up on your sidebars for things that you've searched for recently? I've been searching for a bigger cage for my Tobey.. and there's a sneaky little add! So weird!
There are a ton of other websites and techy things I use in my classroom but those are the ones I'm most excited about!
Thanks for stopping by!
