    Hello! I am currently a junior in college and am in the elementary education program. I was wondering what educational or instructional technology tools that are actually being used in a classroom. What are some favorites and why? What would be the best recommendation for a new teacher?

    I use a few tools including, but not limited to: Google Earth, Maps, and Blackboard. Google Docs, Sheets, and Excel are great resources for creating assessments, monitoring student progress, and informing instruction as well. Please let me know if you have any questions, on how I use these.

    We have a classroom smartboard, student computers (8) and each child has an 1:1 ipad to use, that can be checked-out and taken home (parents' permission required). This is for 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade. We also have access to Apple TV, laptops (on a limited basis) and each teacher has a school provided laptop for their use in planning and teaching. Teachers also have a school provided ipad with Google Classroom on it. We have a wide variety of apps that have been vetted and teacher-approved. We also teach typing in class (thus the 8 computers).

    Teacher computer, document camera, smart projector, and 5 student computers.
    We have access to surface computers; there are three rotating classroom sets.
    We can go to the computer lab weekly, or as needed.


    I love my document camera and smart projector, and use them daily. The projector essentially turns my whiteboard into a smartboard, WHICH I LOVE.
    Student computers are a necessity since we do AR at my school and students take quizzes daily. I'm quite happy with the technology I have in my room and what I have access to.

    Hey ,
    Well right now many school are buying Chrome books because they are very powerful and much cheaper than iPads. Coding for Kids is really big right now many schools are looking for tools to use to teach their young students some basic programing.
    I would recommend finding fun tools that students like and that you have a fun time teaching.

    Best,

    We have a class set of Chromebooks. Love them. We use Google Classroom and Quizizz almost daily. We use Quizlet for vocabulary, and I've had them all make Wordpress blogs that we're going to use to record science notes and projects, as well as lab write-ups soon.

    We have Apple TVs and ipads for each teacher, plus 5 Chromebooks per class, plus grade sets of Ipads (about 30 per grade, which we divvy up with heads up if we need all of them for something.)
