I have been lucky enough to have been selected to be a part of T3 for the past years. Thanks to this grant I have had 8 MacBooks in my classrooms as well as other pieces of technology. I do not feel that I have learned anything from this tool that I did not already know about the technology. The only new thing I saw on the videos was how to find the searchable database for apps and other SBISD approved things.
Having had this
technology in my room these past few years I have found having a
routine which regularly includes the technology helps greatly. My
technology has a designated area in my classroom in which it is used. My
students know it is not allowed to leave this area without permission. I
also have this area set up as to my students are facing the wall, thus
the computer screen is displayed where I can see it at all times. This
helps keep students on task!
