Transform Teaching Through Technology

 

Powerful things were happening on the campus as a result of using technology. I share this with you to encourage you to be an ambassador for technology for your students. I saw teachers taking the initiative and began using technology on their own. I was seeing wonderful technology learning activities like science simulations of complex concepts and students creating their own narrated videos with Photo Story from pictures taken during a science activity featuring hermit crabs.

Students were excited about learning with technology and became sponges for technology and teachers were eager to use technology to enrich their curriculum. The excitement and passion I had for technology use was spreading among the staff and students so we decided to expand our audience and included parents. We taught parents how to use the district library databases so they can assist their child with research when applicable. Great things were happening in the classrooms now with technology enriching teacher instruction.
