Everyone wants teachers to use technology in the classroom. But you're busy -- meeting standards, prepping students for tests -- and maybe you’re not too fond of computers, anyway. Never fear – there are easy ways to bring your classroom up-to-date, technologically.
Prepare for Your Technology in the Classroom Adventure!
Do you have a iPad in your classroom for your use? How about iPads for students to use? Could you get a classroom iPad?
What kind of Internet access is available at your school? What are school policies on student use of the Internet?
What do you have to do to get Ipads for your students?
Also try to find a technology "mentor" on campus – the computer teacher or just another teacher who uses technology more than you do. It helps to know there’s someone who can guide you and help you incorporate technology in the classroom if you’re feeling overwhelmed.
