I pray that you and your family are doing well. My son and I are doing fantastic. One of the main activities taking my time right now is attending graduate school full time pursuing my Master’s in Curriculum and Instruction with a focus in Learning, Design, and Technology. I’m excited to report that I am learning so much! I will be sharing what I learn with you in ways that can benefit you and your children/students as well.
Today, I would like to share two resources with you that I have found valuable. The first is a YouTube video that you will need to watch with pen and paper. Although the video is less than an hour long, the narrator manages to share over 50 ways to utilize technology in your classroom. The video can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yj7QQM-ZMWc&feature=youtu.be
The second resource that I would like to share is a content heavy website promoting 21st century learning, p21.org. On this site, you will find valuable research on how educators are using technology to help students practice the 4C’s – creativity, critical thinking, collaboration, and communication. A set of tools that I found especially useful was the 21st Century Skill Maps. They include specific examples about how technology can be used in each subject area to accomplish the 4C’s on different grade levels.
Please enjoy these resources and let me know how they are of benefit to you.
Love and Light,
