If you have not already become a virtual friend of Tom Barrett, you’re missing out on a wealth of ideas that could help you incorporate technology into your classrooms – and so much more!
Tom has a website filled with lists of “Interesting Ways to…<fill in the blank>”. Topics range from using a video camcorder or an interactive whiteboard or blogs or wikis in your classroom, to ways to develop relationships with students or make your classroom ‘sparkle’. (He even has ways to create & use QR codes – those weird little rectangular icons that are appearing everywhere that you can scan with your smartphone…)
Take a minute to glance at this list. You’ll probably find something that piques your interest. You might need a Google account to view the GoogleDocs presentations, which are like Power Point files. Each slide contains one idea and and image to help you incorporate it into your classroom activities or environment.
