Over the past few weeks we have been learning a lot about a vast number of different kinds of technologies and software available for use in the classroom. Technology is an area in which I have also been wary of during teaching placements thus far. I feel I am become a lot more confident in my uses of it for educational purposes. It really is the discoveries of the programs, and having the chance to use them during seminars for this unit that I have become much more ‘tech savvy’ in an educational sense.
Some of the programs/software/apps I am now very eager to use in the classroom include
- Google docs
These rate just some of the programs introduced, that I would highly recommend to other teachers in the future to use. I have found with each of them that once I start playing around they have become very easy to use, and that by experimentation I have the discovered the perks and quirks of them all!
