Stuff We Use

I've started a new sidebar on this blog where I'm keeping posts specific to examples of various technologies used in practical ways in our paperless classroom.

So far, we've got posts on using Google Wave in class (including a video), using Jing to leave audio/video comments on student blogs, using Twitter to develop fun and useful classroom drills, using Issuu to organize student classwork into digital magazines, using Google Docs to make digital multimedia flashcards, and a post on 21C classroom design.

These are all examples of things my students and I actually do on a daily basis -- I don't want to give you the idea that this is just pie-in-the-sky theory stuff. For example, students in my Latin II class have absolutely refused to go back to our pre-Wave way of doing in-class translation; and students in my history classes are downright proud of their Delicious libraries. And so I offer you these posts teacher-to-teacher and look forward to sharing more with you and hearing about your experiences in return.

  1. All of these things can be done without technology, so what makes these tools "better"?
