Technology in the Classroom

Marlys WeaverStoesz

 When using technology in the classroom, there are generally three ways you can use it:   1. To teach the technology.  “Today we are going to learn how to use Excel to create graphs.”   2. To teach content that can be taught without the technology.  “Use Power Point to give a presentation about the Solar System.”   3. To teach content in ways not possible without the use of technology.  “Download solar data for the past five years and describe one pattern you observe from 2000-2017.”  https://www.helioviewer.org   Although all levels of technology use are valuable, but deeper and longer-lasting learning comes from number three.
