TECH TOOLS

How to Choose the Right Tools

Knowing how to integrate the use of technology in your classroom, and knowing which tools to use can feel overwhelming for a busy teacher. My best advice is to start small. Think of what outcome you'd like for your students, and then let that guide you to find the right tool. For instance, if you'd like your students to be more reflective in their work, Seesaw might be a great place to start. Seesaw empowers students to independently document their learning with built-in creative tools, and provides an authentic audience for their work. If you're looking for ways to inspire your students to become more motivated and engaged writers, consider teaching them how to become digital storytellers. Tools such as Clips, Chatterpix or Green Screen by DoInk can all lead to creative and collaborative projects that your students will be proud of. By starting small and continuing to allow your students to create, collaborate and communicate digitally, you'll soon be crushing it in your classroom!
