My high school geometry classroom is filled with 21st century learners. who rely on their friends and technology, to communicate, to play, and to relax. Technology is such an integral part of life outside of the classroom, but because of a lack of sufficient funding, integration of technology within the classroom has not kept up.
How can I strategically plan to authentically integrate technology, when I do not have regular access to technology?
Planning for the use and integration of technology in the classroom takes time and careful thought. Because I do not have guaranteed daily access to technology, planning to use it on a daily basis is almost impossible.
My students love to use technology and benefit from its integration, but I have limited daily access to technology in my mathematics classroom. I have tried using phones to meet this need, but have found that using phones for access does not work. Students are too distracted by games and social messages.
Using the Chromebooks with a partner, students can complete assignments on Google Classroom, create drawings to help remember shapes and figures, communicate with me, collaborate with other groups, and take online assessments.
The data I can gather from online assessments, changes how I teach. I am informed of exactly how the students are progressing and where they have gaps in their knowledge.
