What are some of the innovative ways you are integrating technology into your curriculum?

If you are wondering what a 21st Century Classroom looks like, look no further than the 5th Grade wing at Driver Middle School. Katrina Ercole and Maureen Manke have leveraged a variety of digital tools to support teaching and learning in the Marcellus Central School District. Katrina and Maureen utilize the Smartboard in their rooms for every subject area. Student worksheets and journal pages are displayed, as well as learning targets and directions. Students are able to follow along visually as well as look back if they need reminders. Marcellus Central Schools has adopted Google Apps for Education (GAFE) to support collaboration across the district. Katrina and Maureen's students are proficient in using Google Docs to collaborate with one another as well as turn in assignments electronically.  Students have access to a wide variety of hardware to leverage Google's cloud-based tools, including desktop computers, Chromebooks, netbooks, and iPads.   [more...]
