My fifth and sixth graders really did well the first day and were able to follow directions and work together to solve any problems with understanding they may have had. I was just the facilitator watching and…

21st Century Classrooms and Learning

I feel that there is a huge misunderstanding when it comes to a 21st Century Classroom.  In my experience, many people equate 21st Century classrooms and learning with the use of technology.  I have to admit that I too was initially confused.  Many think that by using technology, they are creating a "21st Century Classroom."  However, this is often not te case.  When used correctly, technology can enhance and contribute to a 21st Century Classroom.  Technology is not a stand alone; it must…

21st Century Computer Lab for an Elementary School

This post is a commentary on the future of Computer Labs as well as a "cry" for your input on what you believe a 21st Century C-Lab should look like. This will also become the first in a series of posts regarding a major transformation both physically and philosophically within our school. We are remodeling our school. I am going to re-purpose and re-structure our lab. I am not 100% confident that I am going in the right direction...this is a bit of a risk. You're input here would be of great… Continue

Elementary Tech Teachers SMARTBoard Tech Lessons?

Elementary Technology Teachers teach how-to.... and integrate technologies. We must spend time teaching how to use software and hardware so that students can apply tech skills in other areas. In our struggle of encouraging everyone to integrate SMARTBoards and other IWBs, I find that we do not have many of the tech How-To... lessons for the IWBs. SmartBoard and Promethean lessons for curriculum topics are springing up all over, but we still cannot ignore the basic technology knowledge needs.… Continue
