I’m linking up this week with the Teaching Trio to share one way I use technology in my classroom. The use of technology allows me unique ways of reaching my students and increases their engagement and knowledge. I use many technology tools, but Google Images and YouTube are a staple.
I realize this is not a revolutionary idea, but it made a world of difference for my students this past year! I teach special education students in a Title 1 school, where every student is on free lunch. My students’ background knowledge is severely restricted, since they live and play only in their local neighborhood. In other words, they know little of the outside world, other than what they are exposed to on television at home. We all know that most of the current programming leaves much to be desired!
