My school system gives an award each year to the teacher who finds innovative uses for technology to meet state content standards. You have to turn in a lesson or unit plan along with examples of student work that deals with the innovative technology you're using.
Two years ago I was runner-up and turned in a writing project where my 5th grade students made and illustrated books on the computer and then printed them off. Last year I turned in eTales (podcasts) my students had completed (you can view these on my website www.mrsalyersclass.com
The teacher who won last year used the CPS student response system (clickers) in her classroom.
If anyone has any project ideas I would GREATLY appreciate it!
My students already know how to-
navigate the Internet
Again, this is for a 5th grade elementary school classroom. Thanks!
