Technology in the Classroom Mini-Series

Technology is all around us. And if your district is anything like mine you are expected to utilize it daily. This can be easier for new teachers who are fresh out of college. They are fortunate to be exposed to this in their learning.

However, it can be a little more difficult for teachers who are in the classroom. While we may know about the new technology we may not necessarily have the time to explore it.

This was the scenario with me and Seesaw. I had heard about this app months before I ever even played around with it. Because that is the thing with technology. It has to be learned through hands on exploration.

So where do we find the time to do this?!

We are not always provided the Professional Development we want when it comes to technology. That's where summer comes in for me! This is the time I know many teachers are like myself and attending training and workshops.

This summer I attending an educational summit that focused on technology. I was super excited about it because I was being given the opportunity to hear more about what I was interested in.

Now I want to share it with you!

I will be doing a mini blog series on the technology I was excited to utilize in my own classroom. 

Each week I will share a new blog post about a specific app that I feel may be useful in your classroom. 

Technology can be intimidating and I want to help you feel more prepared to take the jump with it!
