The benefit of having technology in our classroom is not that we can do things better, but that it allows us to do things that were formerly impossible! Technology allows primary students to create in new ways, to connect with people and classrooms outside of their building and to share their work with the world. We’ll explore new tools, student examples, and classroom management techniques that will help make this shift possible in your classroom of little learners. 

We’ll investigate

  • How to keep our young learners safe online
  • Blogging tools that are appropriate for this age level
  • How to leverage Skype in your classroom
  • Classroom Twitter accounts--why would you want one?
  • How you can begin to connect your classroom with the world
