I have to say that technology in the classroom and for children in general, is something that I am always aiming to be better at. I have learned a great deal in the past three years but know that this is a challenging area for me. If you have any tips, ideas or links that you think may be helpful, please comment below.
I have a wonderful site that I use that may help you in planning to integrate technology into your classroom.
My number one recommendation is the Get Smart Page from Copacabana Public School. Here you will find a platform that links to hundreds of interactive games and activities for Kindergarten through to grade 6. The program is one page within the school’s website, that links to other interactive pages, so it is like a catalogue of interactive resources.
Let me help you by translating the grade levels: KS1 is Kindergarten, grade one and two, S2 is third and fourth grade and S3 is fifth and six grade. You will see they are further categorized into key learning areas such as English, Mathematics, Science and HSIE (Human Society and It’s Environment).
Here is what you see when you click on Kindergarten, number!
