Projects That will WOW your students......


These are the projects I presented at MACUL (Michigan Association for Computer Users in Learning)


Curriculum should drive the use of technology. Students should be challenged and inspired by the use of technology, bringing creativity to every aspect of the curriculum. There was a time when money dictated the technology experience students would have at home and school. If a school did not have the funds to buy programs, update  their software, students were at a disadvantage. Now, schools have the opportunity to even playing fields, Schools that have confidence in their technology coordinator and technology teacher can achieve high standards. Of course, money is crucial in having the necessary hardware and internet connections...but after that, the sky's the limit!

Wowing students and parents is easy after that!

Below each example is the website of either activities, lesson plans or more video examples.
