Judith Morais's curator insight, April 5, 2013 1:34 AM

There are some lovely poems and useful exercises to use with elementary students as they learn to experiment with poetry. Prelutsky's poem "Louder than a clap of thunder" is a lovely image evoking poem and I would get my students to create their own sound poem using this as stimulus.

An important point to remember when we are considering using technology in the classroom. The integration of technology can be a help in the classroom while simply using technology can become a hinderance. So where do we make that distinction? 

James Buchanan's curator insight, June 5, 2013 11:47 PM

This article is about digital technology and how it is used and integrated. Are we truly USING technology when it is not integrated? When we ask for assessment that is presented with powerpoint, for example, we could just as easily ask them to write it in a book or make a poster. Digital technology should be used to facilitate collaboration and build high level thinking skills, that is how learning occurs.

 

Rebecca Wilkins's curator insight, July 17, 2015 9:18 PM

Technology use is the first step.  Technology integration is the opportunity to combine technology with pedagogy.  Technology infusion is the process of using technology as a tool for learning, thinking, and problem solving.
