Response: The Best Ways To Use Tech In The Classroom

How do teachers make informed decisions in relation to a balanced use of technology in the classroom? Where can new teachers become better informed about best practices for technology use in the classroom without becoming overwhelmed and discouraged by the overload of information?

It's not only a question of balanced use. It's also a question of how to achieve and maintain a balance with the influx of webtools. I always want to try everything to determine what will work best for my students.

Mirroring360 by Splashtop: A Fantastic BYOD Tool @ClassTechTips | Handy Online Tools for Schools | Scoop.it
Mirroring360 now offers new features – one of which is called Mirroring Assist.

This feature enables devices to mirror across large networks without using Bonjour – invaluable for IT. It also uses a QR code or 9-digit mirroring ID to connect, making it easy for teachers and students to mirror their devices. Teachers can easily save recently connected computers in a favorite list for future connections. In a BYOD environment students with any device can mirror their screen so teachers and students can connect, model, and share easily.

3 Simple Strategies To Integrate Technology Into Any Lesson

3 Simple Strategies To Integrate Technology Into Any Lesson | Handy Online Tools for Schools | Scoop.it

"While technology is an important part of the education equation, it doesn’t tell the whole story. Teachers play a bigger role than ever in developing an engaging well-rounded curriculum, though integrating technology into the mix presents its own unique set of challenges. Many teachers have been reluctant to replace their print materials due to cost and dissatisfaction with the available digital options. According to the MDR 2014 State of the K–12 Market Report, there’s a growing demand for solutions that improve teaching and personalized learning and educators are willing to consider new instructional models.

"So, how do we build an engaging curriculum based on the components of critical thinking, while incorporating technology into the mix – without sacrificing the basics? Here are a few simple tips to integrate technology into almost any lesson."
