3D Printing – Here is a PowerPoint presentation that I have done in regards to 3D printing in the classroom. What is it? What can you create? How does it benefit the students?
How are students using personal technology?
What technology do students currently use? Facebook is actually not the correct answer…that along with Pinterest has become the hangout of “old people”… you know, 25 plus.
Snapchat is by far the most used personal app by our students. One thing we must constantly remind our students of is the need to be positive digital citizens and to be aware of their online presence.
Gaining the attention and engagement of the students is not a new concept, but the advent of technology has made distractions much more readily accessible for our pupils. Positive classroom management and daily routines help to teach our students acceptable behaviour yet allow them the freedom and creativity to use technology to assist in their learning.
One app really helps to alleviate the issues with students not paying attention while using iPads or other devices:
Once these apps have assisted in the engagement of your class we now have to figure out a good way to get assignments from their devices so you can give them the feedback and assessment they desire.
This has been tricky and is still in the trial process but there are two ways to have students “hand in” assignments from their devices.
*Our goal for today – continue the pursuit of technology integration acknowledging that the desired end result is student success.
The technology we use is simply a tool of engagement and should never overshadow student achievement.

“Welcome to the second installment of 21st Century Educator’s teachers-in-the-field interviews! We first interviewed a high school history teacher to discover his favorite digital tools. This time we interviewed a science teacher, Mrs. M, who has spent the last two years making a full 360 degree flip of her physics and chemistry class. She shares what she’s learned from the last two years, how to start ‘flipping’, and our favorite part – a nice huge list of her tried-and-true EdTech tools that help her ‘flip’ be a success.”
