Maryland Teacher Technology Standard 5
I regularly use the Tech Connections in the online curriculum provided by my school district. I browse the technology based instructional options based upon the standard that I am working on with my students. There are Smart Notebook lessons, web links to games, quizzes, and interactive manipulatives.
I taught my students to access the Class Link page on our classroom computers. From this page they are able to use the school approved online databases and technology connections. When I am teaching a writing unit on writing nonfiction text, many of my students who are reading far below grade level are able to use Class Link to get to pebblego to research because this online database reads information aloud to them.
