What We Are About

This blog is our way of sharing our experiences with using technology in our class to teach our students. We hope that our stories, reflections, ideas and strategies help you effectively integrate technology into your classroom to enhance your students learning. Our posts will focus on three main areas:

  • Accessing Technology - Advocating for Division One friendly technological architecture, login tricks, accordances of a variety of devices.
  • Digital Fluency in Division One - Developmental scaffolding of digital skills, what it looks like and how to teach it.
  • Review of Resources - Our thoughts about the web sites, devices, and software we use with our students, and a grade level top five page.
