My teaching has changed with: •giving students more freedom to explore on their own and problem solve. •shorter lectures and more work time for them to do critical thinking and figure out how to use the technology in their every day life or in the classroom. •learning to be patient and not over load them with to much, but allowing them to see how these aspects of technology can help them.
Different web sites: •SYMBALOO -- my mind works like symbaloo and it has helped me a ton with students projects being presented or sharing, my assignments, videos, etc. I can have them click on a tile and not have to worry about them typing in the wrong address. •Goanimate -- students love to add creativity to their projects and opens their eyes to creativity. Practical money skills – importance of personal finance Games, lesson plans, life skills. www.practicalmoneyskills.com Thank you, Mike
