I'm very interested in helping teachers develop projects that use technology to address learning outcomes in various subjects at their grade level. I would also like to provide ideas and suggestions for apps you can use for math, reading, writing, science, social studies and more. My school uses Apple products exclusively, so I have a lot of experience with Mac computers, iPads and Apple TV. I enjoy developing projects that address learning outcomes across multiple subject areas in the grade 4 and 5 curriculum. Since a technology project can demand a significant time commitment, I found it important to have the projects that provide assessment in more than one subject area. I have an interest in projects that incorporate the following technology:
- PowerPoint presentations
- Comic Life projects
- iMovie (creating movies)
- Brochures/Flyers Podcasts (radio plays)
- Blogs Photo/Video Editing
- Story Writing by Story Boarding
Students really love using technology and I find it's a great way to cover some of those harder to get learning outcomes (in particular, social studies, career, health). Students also develop some great prerequisite technology skills that will be useful to them in middle and high school. I would really like to help other teachers plan and implement projects that make use of their technology and address the curriculum.
