How to make a 2 computer classroom work for you: tech integration and classroom management » iLearn Technology
Would you like to use tech more with your lessons, but don’t know how to work it in with centers in your elementary classroom? Hesitant about using tech because you only have 1 or 2 computers in your room? Or, do you tend toward the traditional and are just looking for a way to get started?
This post, from iLearn Technology, offers insight on how one traditionally trained educator integrated technology with a centers-based 2nd grade classroom with great success. Using centers, this teacher was able to personalize instruction and maintain appropriate curricular rigor, with technology playing a supporting role. The examples shared relate how to integrate limited tech in a classroom with limited physical space and a lot of kids who can be tough to manage. (Teaching 6-7-8 year-olds can be like herding cats some days!)
If this teacher could do it, maybe some of these ideas could help you!
