Technology in the Classroom: Making the Most of What You Have

Although we routinely extol the virtues of all technology in the classroom, we also realize that all teachers in all school districts don’t have the same technologies at their disposal. 

Where some schools might have a vast armada of iPads at their disposal, other schools might have just a solitary Windows-based machine at their disposals.

With that in mind, today on, frequent contributing writer Janelle Cox, herself a seasoned educator based on the East Coast, takes a look at how teachers can make the most of the technology in the classroom that is available to them.

Janelle’s ideas include:

  • Incorporate Technology into Your Existing Lessons
  • Make Sure to Care for it
  • Get Free Tech
  • And More!

Janelle sums up her article thusly: “When you have limited technology, it is essential that you know how to use it. Make sure that you ask the computer teacher or find an online mentor to help guide you. Hopefully this article will have inspired you to incorporate more technology into your classroom.”
