Integrating Technology Within The Classroom
I am a 4th grade teacher that is fortunate to have a superintendent that is big on technology. I live and teach in Selma, Alabama, Dallas County School District. Selma is a very small town. However, technology is plentiful here in the Dallas County School District. Every classroom has several computers with cameras, promethean boards/projectors, mobi-systems, and clickers/active-votes. Technology is enforced and encouraged within the Dallas County School System. I try to integrate technology in every subject area. I found that my students are more interested in reading especially through technology, the promethean board. Students seem to grasp concepts in math better by integrating technology. They enjoy having the opportunity to go to the promethean board and work a problem or play a math game verses going to a normal chalk board. Student are so interested in technology, they will introduce you, the teacher, to several learning sites. Technology is very important to the educational system.
