Goal 23: Integrate Technology Effectively #30Goals

Goal 23 of The 30 Goals Challenge 2011

“The most exciting breakthroughs of the 21st century will not occur because of technology but because of an expanding concept of what it means to be human.”~ John Naisbitt

Goal

Short-term- Share with us an example of an activity or lesson you feel integrates technology effectively. Write down your reasons why you chose this example. The example can be from another teacher or your own example. Try to include a link to a recording or multimedia example of the activity. Embed it in your blog if possible.

Long-term- After evaluating the example, come up with a checklist of qualities that support the effective integration of technology and use this as your guide for your lessons.

Check out this video of Ian Chia‘s Send Felicity app. I love how this integrates the child’s real world with art and curiosity! I hope more apps take this as an example of what learning should be. Check out Ian Chia’s Send Felicity website for more examples of effective technology integration and learning!
