Classroom Climate Plan-

This is a great resource for integrating technology while engaging in PBL. The technology element helps the project come alive through research, designing a plan, and then publishing the student's products. I would like to use technology in the classroom so students can conduct their own research. Apps such as these helps students investigate the world, communicate ideas and take action and influence change beyond the scope of the classroom. This is an element of the technology space in the classroom.
