Using Technology in Creative Ways
 curly bar
My Level:  Using a digital tool in a creative or completely unexpected way.

My Mantra: "I explore, evaluate, and use digital information regularly with students." OR
"I allow students to be creative in their choice of technology tools to demonstrate their mastery of instructional concepts."

I encourage my colleagues and students to help each other solve their technology challenges.
  • Capturing notes rather than writing them
  • Aurasma is one of their favorite Apps
  • Plagarism is not an issue - student work is about the journey as well as the product.


  • Teacher is one of many resources for students, not the sole source
  • Uses iPad as a technology 'Swiss Army Knife"  
  • Examines and evaluates technologies for how they can meet student needs
  • Looks for unique new ways to use old tools (i.e. using Explain Everything as a green screen background)
Request for Tech Support sounds like:
  • My computer wasn't working but my class and I solved the problem
  • The Internet is down but I used my Apple TV and iPhone to access an online resource the class needed.
  • Guess what I found.....
