Technology Explorers


Each week we will post a reflection (or more) on our blog.  It's easy!  Just email you post with a picture or video attached to sd68@posterous.com.  


Some Basic Rules of Use

We want these tools to be used every minute, but they need to be used respectfully and safely.  One of our technology explorers drafted a contract for use for your secondary class that you might find helpful as a starting point to sharing best use at your school:  iPad Project Contract.docx  


Support in our Community

VIU educator Julia Hengstler has offered to co-teach with iPads or iPods.  See some of the things she has been working on here.  Email Shelley if you are interested.  


Parent Permissions

Here are some resources that might be helpful.

Donna Reimer's information resource on Protecting Student's Privacy.

We have been using Dropbox - a "cloud" storage space to share our files, especially when we have very large files like video files.  I've used a screencasting tool to create a how-to video.

Digital Footprints

Why allow our students to be publish?  Why allow open access?

Just say yes to publishing!

Give your students more freedom and they are less likely to be in danger

Our Own App Review

Rate the apps and share how you used them.

Add to our list of favourite Web 2.0 Tools (prezi, for example) and how you used them.

Ideas for Apple

Find lessons, tips and ideas for classroom use on our Playing with Apple page.

Create a book!  http://langwitches.org/blog/wp-content/uploads/2011/11/collaborative-classroom-ebooks-.pdf


Ideas for PCs

We have a number of resources for using the laptops.  Check out our technology page to start.  You’ll find some of our favourites, including links for digital storytelling and blogging.  Building a wiki to contain student work is another great idea.
