169 Real-World Ways to Put Tech into Your Class

Description of 169 Real-World Ways to Put Tech into Your Class

Several years ago, in an effort to create a practical strategy for technology success, I started tracking how often I got the same tech questions from students. Soon, I extended it to parents who, in a well-intentioned effort to help with school work, often got stuck on a techie issue. Some spent hours on a problem that could have been solved in minutes–if only they knew how to do that.

Turns out, 70% of the time, it was the same 98 problems.

My daughter is using this as a text in her computer class at school. The lessons are easy to follow and informative. She has learned a lot so far this year. –Amazon customer

I now have all grades (K-5) and think of these as my bible for teaching! Thank you! –Teachers Pay Teachers Customer

I’m a new technology teacher K-8 and needed something for Kindergarten – this book is wonderful! I love it! Lessons are in-depth and will surely help my Kindergarten students gain technology skills that are age appropriate! –Amazon customer

This books provides lots of good ideas for computer teachers. The lessons are geared a little higher than my kindergardeners can handle, so I simplify a lot of the lessons. Many of the lessons use TuxPaint, so if you plan to use these lessons make sure you download it on all of your computers.  –Amazon customer

I have 3 children who all use the technology binders and they are so useful. You know what each lesson is and what they are learning. You also have the homework in there so everything you need is in one binder (which prevents lost sheets of paper). Definitely recommend this product.  –Amazon customer

This workbook is a great tool for helping your primary school student learn hands on skills for the computer. Typing exercises, key hardware terms and other activities are included and can be used pretty independently by the student. It’s been a great tool for our 3rd grader and supplements the activities given in class. Would definitely recommend!

My daughter is using this book at the school she attends and loves it. It makes learning technology so easy for children. It organizes learning so that each lesson builds on what came before, and nothing’s presented that children aren’t ready for. This is the first of six–through fifth grade. I’ve seen the work of fifth graders who have used this since kindergarten. They edit photos in Photoshop and make movies using Pinnacle Studio. They do PowerPoint slideshows that look great. I’d recommend this series to anyone. –Amazon customer
