Great Tech Resources
--twitter for teachers. Can add students. Students can communicate with each other. More protected for students
--can make films from pictures. This is great. Showed example of a short film on Martin Luther King. There are resources as well--archived sets made for education.
--helps kids get ready for tests; gives tables in which questions and answers can be entered.
--Great for group projects; share and collaborate, can share real time; shows who edits and at what time.
--can get a phone number; dedicated to parents or students to contact you. Translates the phone call to text, so you have physical evidence of the conversation. Also good for interviews?
--voice mails are translated to text.
Free technology for teachers
--enter kids cell phones into your computer and you can send one text and all the students receive them; great for sending information to all. Great also when we are on trips and have to contact all the students.
--like power point, but more than one kid can work on it at one time.
--students can work together to organize information in other ways; charts; drawings. Take a template and put it on for students to click and fill (maps).
--Power point presentation. Not linear. Zooms in and out for a great presentation.
