I'm guessing all of us would like to see teachers incorporate and use technology more. We know about Iowa AEA Online and other AEA resources as well. We share these resources with teachers. In addition to these resources, there are many other valuable Web 2.0 tools and apps. Sometimes the most difficult question becomes, "how does this fit with my curriculum?" Let's face it, sometimes we purchase hardware/technology and later need to find ways to use it. That's the opposite of what we should be doing, but best practice and reality are not always the same. Perhaps you do have an curriculum area where you'd like to integrate technology, but you're just not sure what tool might work. Hopefully this blog posting will help you answer the question of "how-to." Written by former educator Tom Caccord, Technology Tools for Teaching and Learning begins with learning goals and then provides suggested tools that can support that learning goal. Done the right way, I hope you find something useful.
