This is a great English and technology resource that I believe would be very popular with the boys ;). As a beginning teacher I am always looking for new ways to inspire students to take an interest in reading and literacy. Tools like this, which are outside the traditonal literacy square, help kids that may not be interested in reading or writing get involved in their literacy learning. A resource for upper primary.
A clever literacy station activity, that implements technology in the way of Ipads. Very simple, suitable for younger and older students alike to practice their skills with a common found technology resources in classrooms today.
Improve your knowledge of irregular verb forms with our irregular verb wheel game
Sophie Smith's insight:
This is a fantastic and addictive resource for teaching students irregular verb forms! Would be a great resource to use in accessing prior knowledge by getting students to write out what they think the irregular verb forms are and then spinning the wheel to get the answers!
This is not a resource, but a must-read for classroom teachers! It highlights some of the limations of technolgy that teachers should be wary of, while also some examples of how it can be used to inspire innovation and creativity in our students. I think it is important to remember that we can't just throw technology at our students as plaything, we need to create valid and engaging lessons which take technology from being a novelty to something that is effective to children's learning. A great and current look into technology use in the education system.
