Twenty Everyday Ways to Model Technology Use
I thought this was an interesting discussion on a recent Edutopia Blog. The author suggests 20 simple ways that teachers can "model" technology usage in the classroom. I agree with some of the comments, that in the future we would like the students to be the ones using the technology. But, I also believe that for many teachers these ideas and suggestions would be a great place to start. Ian Jukes once told me that if students don't see evidence of technology use in a classroom within the first five minutes, they begin to "power down." Check out this list of ideas. For many teachers they may be good first steps.
