So I am feeling a little technology overwhelmed, I think. I am excited to have access to technology with my students. I feel like blogging has introduced me to some great sites I want to try, but I am not sure how often to introduce a new site to my students. I really want to try Class Dojo, Booksource, Kidblog, Edmodo...the list goes on. Anyone else have a strategy for introducing technology? I have seen great posts on iPad apps. We don't have iPads, but we are using Macs (which by the way are out of my comfort zone). If you have followed me awhile, you know I am married to a gamer who is also a programmer. I am not afraid of technology. We have 4 PC's at our house for two people (two are old though and not used much). Macs are new to me as Apple products are forbidden at our house with the exception of my iPhone. (It's a gamer thing for some gamers to hate Apple).
I know I need to sit down and play with Garage Band. What other Mac programs are great for classroom use? Any great apps (that are free or inexpensive we could use on Macs and not iPads?) I am getting ready for my 400 follower giveaway, which I think I have decided to structure like lots of other giveaways recently with a giveaway each day over several days. In the meantime, help me out by entering my Technology Tips Giveaway. You also can link up below with helpful posts you write or have written on Technology.
A couple of posts I read today that got me thinking and inspired this giveaway:
As I try out some things myself, I will try and share ideas/posts about how I try to incorporate more technology in my classroom. I would especially love ideas on how you use your Mac. The prize for this giveaway will be $25 to either Target, Amazon, or Tpt. It will be the winner's choice.
