A class I’m currently taking has me thinking quite a bit about technology integration in the classroom and professional development surrounding it. In the coming weeks, I’ll blog more about some of the work I’m doing in those realms. I was reminded of a post I wrote on my previous blog 3 years ago that seems relevant in some of my current explorations, so I thought I would repost it. Here it is:
Posted April 9, 2013: Yesterday, I was filling out on of those online entire school corporation job applications. Today, after a recommendation of a colleague, I was filling out an application for an award given to technology using educators. Both applications (and others I’ve seen in the past) had this question in some form, “What is one way you use technology in your classroom?”
Now, this question bothers me and here’s why. My answer is really in what don’t I use technology in the classroom. Narrowing it down to one specific way is difficult and lessens the value of what I do with technology.
