My classroom has become the Global Classroom! Technology has had the largest impact on my teaching this year. It has helped engage students, and my lesson plans are richer and timelier. My classroom has become a 21st century classroom due in part to the technology grant that I was awarded at the beginning of the year, which includes 10 iPads, 5 netbooks, 3 flip cameras, 2 iPods and a laser printer
A 21st Century Classroom

During the next few weeks my students and I will not only be preparing for the high stakes testing that is soon approaching, but also working collaboratively in groups on technology based learning projects.

Also, on Saturday I am presenting to new teachers Effective Use of Technology in the Classroom. Click here to view my powerpoint.
