How Do Your Kids Use Technology?
This summer our county put together a fabulous Tech Expo. Instead of bringing in outside trainers, we used the experts in our county to teach about hardware and programs we have available to us in our county. There was a conference style schedule of five 45 minute classes. As a trainer, you only taught one or two classes so you could attend classes as well. A wide variety of classes were offered to pick from. I taught "TeKno1ogy in K/1, They can do it too!" I shared tips on K/1 students using technology without you pulling your hair out! We also discussed how students can use technology in class. One of the ways my students use tech to share what they have learned is using Keynote (or Powerpoint) to make a story map. I have students make these in groups of 3 during the Super 6 (my learning centers) Buddy Reading with the story of the week. This is the sheet with the students' instructions.
