This blog is for teachers or anybody interested in strategies for students living in the 21st century . Here I will post updates on the Maine Literacy and Technology Grant. Information on technology use in classrooms will also be posted on a regular basis. Please feel free to comment. Welcome! The adventure begins.
A new website called K-12 Tech Tools features more than 1,000 free online technology tools. The tools are categorized by subject, grade level, and standards. Teachers can share their own tech tools, success stories, and can learn from one another. Subject areas include art, English, language arts, health, math, music, science, and social studies. The site’s “Etc.” category features links to resources pertaining to internet safety, kid-friendly search engines, YouTube and alternatives, educational games, social media tools, and time management tips. Users can view tips and resources based on which technology tool they are using, such as computers, iPods and iPads, and video.
