If you happen to be attending the Nebraska Educational Technology Association conference in Omaha this week, I’ll be presenting with some of my students on Friday. The title of our presentation is “21st Century Classrooms on a Budget.” It will be from 1:30-2:15 on Friday, April 24.
The students have been hard at work refining their parts of the presentation. We’re trying to present as if it were a typical class period in my room. Class will begin with a short teacher led activity and then students will branch off to work on certain projects. Each of the students will present a couple of projects that they worked on during the “period” and also highlight a project they’ve done in another area this year. Along the way, I’ll be discussing some of the strategies I use to work around limited availability of computers and/or having no money for hardware/software. If you’re looking for ideas to inexpensively incorporate technology into your teaching, you will hopefully find this presentation beneficial.
