Blog Post 14

words Technology and Education: Box of Tricks

I was quite excited to do this blog post, because I love learning different ways to incorporate technology in my future classroom. I agreed with all of Jose Picardo's Top Ten Tips for Using Technology in the Classroom. I love the fact of using videos and music during a lesson. I believe that it will keep the children interested in learning and having fun while learning as well and student's learn better when they are having fun. However, I also believe that it is important to incorporate their own devices, such as an iPod or cell phone, in your classroom. Picardo's list of resources for teachers is among my favorite thing that I have read in EDM 310. As a future teacher, I plan to use the resources that he has provided to better technology in my classroom. I defiantly book marked Jose Picardo's blog.

Another tip that I was interested in was creating my own interactive exercises. I am not familiar on how exactly to do this, but I do plan on learning more about it and using it in my future classroom. Like in my former blog post, I explained that I plan to have class blog. Picardo's tip #7 was exactly what I plan to do. I believe that class blogs are important not only for students to keep up with the class, but parents as well. A blog would be perfect for posting due dates and upcoming assignments for the class.


  1. I agree Jose Picardo video gave a certain extra motivation to teaching. Younger students using technology in the classroom will make the learning environment that much more interesting and fun. Thank you for your post!!

  2. Very nice post. Didn't find any grammatical errors and overall it's a quality blog post.

  3. Devon,

    Resources are so important as we continue our journey towards becoming educators! I am glad you found these sites useful.
