For nine years of my teaching career, I was a traditional teacher teaching in the primary grades the best that I knew. I focused greatly on the core subjects, especially reading and writing. I used traditional best practices and employed technology the best I knew, and honestly, I felt that I was doing a pretty good job. A streaming video here and a phonics website there during Guided Reading and I thought, “Hey, I’m integrating technology into my instruction just fine!”
My students were still learning those core concepts along with the mandatory standards, yet the thinking was deeper, the understanding was widened, and the connections were more meaningful than I had ever seen in the primary grades. From integrating videos and links into documents to allowing students to digitally praise and give constructive feedback to each other’s work, my classroom truly became a community of learners immersed a new digital world.
Here’s an example of how students are able to respond digitally.
