How to Teach with Technology

Students fire off new lesson plans for the digital classroom.
Sara Bernard
Journalist

We asked students and teachers nationwide to give us their best tech-teaching ideas and received hundreds of surprising responses. Below, you'll find links to a wide-ranging selection, organized by subject area for easy access. Discover some great new teaching tools to use in your classroom.

Language Arts

Find out how to use videos and video games, chat tools and Skype, photo-editing software and online slide shows, and more to transform language arts into a creative art.

Social Studies

Learn how blogs, wikis, and social networking, plus filmmaking and online games, and more make history and current events come to life.

Science and Math

Read how to make science and math learning feel real to students by letting them employ video and computer games, video cameras and disposable cameras, and interactive whiteboards.
