Technology has made a big impact on teachers’ jobs. It can be a blessing and a curse, all tied up in a bow! I began teaching when there was one computer lab on campus that we took our class to once a week. Back in those days, teachers did not have his or her own computer. While it would have been nice to have a computer in our room to type up class lists at the beginning of the year, we also didn’t have a gazillion emails, websites, and electronic duties. In some ways, it felt like we spent more time teaching . . . . back in the day!
If you were around me for 5 minutes, you would quickly see that I love technology, but not what it has added to a teachers’ already busy schedule.
I am always looking for new things that can enrich your job or make it a little easier. Here are a couple you should check out:
Telestory is a FREE app. Your students can create their own TV show using it. This can be used so many different ways.
Sign up genius is one of my favorite sites. You can use it to organize class parties or field trips. It is also a great way for students to sign up for a big project.
