A free tech course to get it all up and running smoothly in your primary classroom without losing a bunch of class time.
Does most of the professional development for using tech in the primary classroom seem unrelatable to you when it comes to using some of these suggestions in your primary classroom?
Are you confused on where to even start beyond just downloading some free app where you see zero data on actual student work?
Do you want to use technology to incorporate more creativity? What about including tech with activities that involve more higher-order thinking?
Would you like to maximize the use of tech in your classroom, so you can better meet student needs?
Then you came to the right place for help. I have something for you that is going to help you become a rock star at using tech in your class! And it is all FREE…even the tech tools I am recommending!
What is it?
It is a free mini-course that includes a clear three-step system that is going to help you and your primary students get set-up with using tech in your primary classroom…with activities that involve higher levels of thinking. It shows you how to get either use PowerPoint or Google Slides in conjunction with an app that allows students to draw. That way, students can turn in writing masterpieces and other creative pieces of work that utilize illustrations. Then it breaks down how you can easily share files back and forth.
It is all broke down in a clear three-step system, so you can easily implement it easily with your students. This three-step system is meant to minimize the use of time teaching tech, so you can maximize the use of class time for actual learning. It also offers hacks and methods to make accessing and using the apps as simple as possible for young students.
These tools I recommend flow together, and they can be used for a multitude of activities. You can incorporate content-rich activities if you choose. Students can create all sorts of types of projects.
Not only that, but this system has options that make it versatile whether you are using Google Classroom, Microsoft Office 365 with Teams, other learning management systems, or even if your school does not have you set-up with a learning management system. Yes, I have tools to recommend and will even show you how to use those, but I will be including options to make this work for just about any primary teacher.
Don’t worry, I am going to make it clear what options will work best for your scenario too! I’ve done the geeky tech specs configuring out for you, so you can run with it!
So what is this system? Well, it is going take more than a short blog post to really share it all. Instead, I have broken it into five lessons.
Also, would you like student tutorials to help you teach your students to use these tech tools in your class? Yes!?! Great! I actually will include many free student tutorials with it too. Instead, I will be giving you practical teaching ideas throughout, be sharing a three-step system for you to get students using these tech tools in your class, and even a free resource that you can use to introduce the tools in your class.
