15 Ideas and Tons of Resources to Try with Learners This School Year

“Technology is just a tool. In terms of getting the kids working together and motivating them, the teacher is the most important.” ~ Bill Gates

Throughout the year, I’ve shared many activities and resources to engage your learners with technology. Below are more than 15 ideas to try with your learners. Try picking one or two that you think would really motivate your learners to be more creative, problem solve, and think critically. You will find links to the resources, lesson plans, activities, and free web tools and apps I have shared for each of these ideas weekly in webinars or blog posts. You can click to download the pdfs of the slides and access my bookmarks. Below is a slide presentation featuring all 15 ideas with a few examples. Thank you so much for reading this blog and sharing the posts and resources.
