This website is one that I used when I was learning French. Basically, you try to fill in words in the lyrics during a song. There are three levels and you try to match the speed of the song. There…Continue

Will technology take precedence over paper, pens, and writing? Should it?

More and more, I am seeing technology taking over classrooms and life in general. People don't write letters. Kids turn in papers written in Word, or e-mail them. It doesn't seem like kids will be…Continue

"I think it's up to people to not let technology take over, we are in control of this, as we have the choice of what tools we use. Technology should be seen as a tool to aid us and as another tool alongside books and writing, it is not instead…"

"I believe money is the reason technology won't take over completely. How could a district afford an iPad for every student at every school from K-12? Who buys the replacement when a student loses it, has it stolen, or breaks it?  With that…"

"Technology is advancing and providing more resources to learn.  Although it is advancing, I do not see it taking over the classroom too quickly.  The classroom is filled with a variety of teachers.  Some teachers quickly adapt to…"

"We use a lot of technology in our classroom and I do not find that it is taking over, however; enriching the lessons being taught. Kids today are not the same as they were years ago and need different types of technques incorperated into their…"

Techchicks episode 98

I listened to techchicks episode 98. They discussed screenchomp, filming tricks, infographics, the Global storytelling project, 182 Google tips, Carrot sticks, Songsterr, Typing  Web, Kickstarter, Dunno, and Spy Mouse.Screenchomp is for verbally giving “editing points” on student papers. This way you can explain more in less time. Filming tricks has different tips for making movies. Infographics is a prettier version of Excel. The Global Storytelling project is a story on a wiki that has been…See More

Lyrics Training

This website is one that I used when I was learning French. Basically, you try to fill in words in the lyrics during a song. There are three levels and you try to match the speed of the song. There are many languages that you can use, including English, French, German, Italian, and Spanish. It's a lot of fun and really makes your brain work, but it is probably best suited to advanced students and native speakers.http://www.lyricstraining.com/See More

Rebekah Donaldson replied to Ashley Rawls's discussion Are we pushing technology too much?
"I think it is really important to continue teaching kids to write manually. All kinds of things are better hand written: journals, letters, and notes. And manual things are better for kinesthetic kids, in my opinion, any way. So, I hope we keep the…"

Rebekah Donaldson replied to rodo montes's discussion Kindles and iPads VS Books
"I think it is probable, but not likely very helpful. I need to be able to hold the book, turn the pages, and really highlight it in order to use it. E-books just don't help me very much. On the other hand, students today are growing up in a…"

Rebekah Donaldson replied to Jessica Scott's discussion Student-Use of Technology in the Classroom
"The part about this that worries me is that the students who are kinesthetic and concrete may need to actually feel things with their hands. Not move things on a screen. Technology remains a visual/auditory thing to me."

"I think that in the future, technology will play a much greater part in the classroom than it does now, and who knows with the speed technology as well as the world is advancing there may come a day when it does replace these things…"
