Hello Everyone,


My school has recently reived several new technology equipments in our building.  For example, we now have a Mac Computer Lab, Mimio Boards, Digital Cameras, Flip Cameras, flat screen tv in each pod and I'm looking for ways that I can use this new technology with my young students. So, does anyone have any great technology projects that you do with kindergartners or young students?  I look forward to your great ideas.

Jamie,  So glad to see your posting.  Yes, let's start sharing ideas!


Okay, here is one project I did with my kinder/first grade combo class. We brainstormed recess activities and each student picked one.  They went out with a partner and took a digital photo of that activity and then they wrote a sentence about it.  I had them record the sentence using iMovie so that it went with the photo.  But you could print out the photos and make it into a book.  I have nine digital cameras that we used.


Another teacher had students write poems about a part of their body and then take photos of that part. He printed out the photos in blank and white using a regular printer, not a photo printer and then posted the photo with the matching poem.  Camille 


Thanks so much for those ideas, that is a great way to include the technolog into writing sentences.  I think one thing I plan to try next year is a Fairytale Unit that involves using flip cameras.  We had a 2nd grade teacher receive a grant for flip cameras and he loans them out to teachers.  I think I will try using them by reading a fairytale to my students.  Then with a partner during center time they will take turns recording each other retelling the fairytale using puppets.  I will see how well it goes and if the students can handle the activity. 

My students do a take home video project with a flip camera. They take home our classroom mascot which is a stuffed dog named Maxie. They record everything theyndo with Max over the weekend. This is then compiled onton a CD which is given out as an end of the year gift and memory.
