Free Technology For Teachers: A Simple Reminder for Tech Integrators

Yesterday, Tina Coffey posted a list of teachers she knows that have tried to integrate technology into their lessons this year. For me, her list was a great reminder of a couple of things. First, many teachers are not comfortable using 21st century technology in the classroom and any step toward trying to use new technology is a positive thing. Second, everyone likes to be recognized for working hard and trying new things.

As the school year starts to wind down, take a look around your school or school district and think about who has tried to do something new (even if it’s only new to her/him) with technology this year. Then recognize those people in whatever way works best for you. I plan to say “good work” and “thank you” to the people on my list in person. The first two people on my list are Mrs. Jones and Mr. Hammett. Who are the first two people on your list?
