The Instructional Technology Team welcomes about 350 new teachers to the district this week. We are glad to guide these fresh faces to ‘test the waters’ integrating technology into a lesson.
First, clarification might be needed to recognize the difference between Information Technology and Instructional Technology. Information Technology (IT) works with the infrastructure and the hardware. Instructional Technology supports software and instructional uses of technology. You will see Instructional Technology referred to as WCS EdTech.
This Prezi provides a guide to spark inquiry and facilitate learning. Work through the activities accessed via the QR Code link or this URL to learn more about integrating technology into your lessons.
If you have questions relating to integrating technology into your classroom, be sure to contact your school’s tech coach. We look forward to collaborating with you this year!
If you’ve ever asked students to access something on the Internet without the benefit of a clickable link, you have probably noticed that the link address can be quite long! An easy way to shorten a URL is to use a URL shortener like QR.net. With QR.net, you can even customize the address and choose something your students will easily remember. You can also copy and post a QR code for students to scan to access the link you want to share.
