The Use and Abuse of Technology in the Classroom

The Use and Abuse of Technology in the Classroom | Technology in Education | Scoop.it

Technology should not be used as simply a digital worksheet. There are many apps and Internet sites available that are simply a technological version of a paper task, forcing students to practice over and over a skill that they may already have mastered.  Don’t get me wrong. Skills do need to be practiced. I just happen to think that students should spend most of their time using technology for more creative purposes.

Poetry Month: Everything You Need

Poetry Month: Everything You Need | Technology in Education | Scoop.it

Celebrate poetry month with these resources to help you teach students how to read, write, and share poems.

Dale Borgeson's insight:

from Richard Byrne: One of the resources that I really like is the Poetry Idea Engine. The Poetry Idea Engine is a simple, interactive tool that helps students create four types of poems; haiku, limerick, cinquain, and free verse. To create poem on Poetry Idea Engine students select one of the four formats. If they pick one of the first three format students will be given a short explanation of the pattern before completing the template to create their poems.
