Tech tools in the classroom can offer endless possibilities. When you are teaching a classroom full of students, you are presented with 20 to 30 different personalities, that many more different learning styles, and twenty to thirty different backgrounds (depending on the size of your class). To be adequately prepared, you must have a wide range of competency. These technological tools are sure to assist you in the accommodation of this variety of challenges.
Let’s say you’re a high school literature teacher. How do you think you might get a room of fourteen year olds interested in literature that is over four hundred years old? The answer isn’t quite as difficult as it may seem. Simply find a way to bring the 17th century into the 21st century.
With the use of a tablet or iPad, you can more easily mesh the two centuries into one. With the access to information that these two provide, the possibilities are endless. Assisted read-throughs, visual prompts, and tactile interaction tools are available to aid you in whatever direction you choose as an educator.
Dry erase whiteboards are an essential tool in the classroom. They come in all different shapes, sizes, and variations. You can purchase a magnetic dry erase board, glass boards, and even extra tall whiteboards. Whatever your need may be, there is a board to meet it.
The magnetic whiteboard connects with children that are more tactile learners, offering you a chance to be more versatile in your learning style focus. Students can physically manipulate their math problems with magnetic numbers! Physical touch speaks to some students much more clearly than simply reading something, just as reading sinks in deeper for some than others.
Promethean boards are the icing on the cake when it comes to educational learning boards in the classroom. Here is a breakdown of just a few of their assets and capabilities.
The promethean board comes equipped with a projector that is capable of connecting with a laptop, computer, or tablet offering your students a conducive medium to sharing their projects.
