Using technology with students requires the same sort of best practices that effective teachers implement in their classrooms on a daily basis. It’s just there is a little screen instead of a worksheet in front of their kids.
And just like there are those of us who cringe when we see kids copying and pasting on worksheets, we equally cringe when we see kids essentially copying and pasting online.
What we want to see is kids ACTIVELY engaged using technology as a tool for their engagement, rather than being actively engaged in technology and not having a clue what is going on in class.
I have developed this packet to provide guides for students who use technology to enhance their learning.
