Last night I had the honor of giving a short technology integration presentation to the trustees. In it I talked about what I do with technology in my classroom, why I do it, and where technology integration is heading. The presentation slides, which include embedded video, can be viewed right here:
Here are the materials I referenced/sampled in the presentation:
SAMR in 120 Seconds (Video)
SHIFT Happens Home (Website)
Iowa, Did You Know? (SHIFT Happens 5.0 – Video)
The NMC Horizon Report: K-12 Edition (Document)
It’s a big year for technology in the classroom at Williston. 550+ Surface Pros have been deployed to the eager hands of every student and faculty member. The WiFi network has been amped up, and Schoology is being used in every class. Here’s what I have planned for my classes:
OneNote: Everything that I present will be done through OneNote and projected onto the board. I am also requiring that all of my students complete all of their homework in OneNote. My presentation notebook is shared with all of my students. This means that (as long as they have an active internet connection) they will have live access on their own Surface to the notes I am presenting in class.
