Integrating Technology when Tech Resources are VERY Limited??

I teach for a school system where we have to follow very strict rules about things such as grants (we cannot write them or accept "donations) and privacy/confidentiality. I feel that this is really limiting my ability to use technology and Web 2.0 tools. We are able to use "Gaggle", but I am not sure about other things such a blogs or wikis. I am working with a colleague to start gathering some inexpensive pieces of technology such as "off-brand" MP3 players w/video to create podcasts, but since these will be paid for out of pocket, it might take some time.

 

If anyone has suggestions for how I can make the most of the desktop computers (that is all the technology we have), beyond games and using Office applications...I would be grateful !

Hi Colleen, I'm sending you the the link to the amazing Aviva Dunsingers grade 1 fully connected class. It is full of good ideas and might be a good resource to show teachers in your school how technology fits in. http://avivadunsiger.wikispaces.com/
Another great free resource is collaborize.  It is a closed social media site, very easy to learn how to use and you can monitor all activity.  Students can discuss ideas and see each others' thoughts.  It is very useful.
