One of the requests that I get from time to time is for sources of data and research about using technology in the classroom. Some of the resources that I commonly refer people to can be found here. Today, through Vicki Davis’s blog I learned that PBS Teachers has a great resource that I’ll recommend in the future. The PBS Teachers Technology Integration page has a lengthy list of reports and examples of best practices for using technology in the classroom. The list is divided into eleven categories including topics like visual media, Internet safety, access and the digital divide, and student learning.
Applications for Education
If you’re the person in your school that people turn to for research and best practices ideas, the PBS Teachers Technology Integration page could be a handy page to direct your colleagues to.
