The Techy Teacher/Access: Let's Get Creative
Tucker, Catlin
Educational Leadership, v74 n3 p87-88 Nov 2016
Some teachers fear that using technology will create an even larger divide between the haves and the have nots, but the reality is that kids "must" leave schools technology literate to access information and opportunities beyond school. Teachers who do not have easy access to technology must get creative to give students opportunities to learn and hone the 21st century skills that are crucial for success in an increasingly digital world. If teachers do not find ways to put technology into students' hands, they will leave their classrooms more disenfranchised than when they entered. This article presents five strategies the author has found useful in connecting all students with technology both in and out of the classroom: (1) Google Maps; (2) Donors Choose; (3) Low-Cost Internet and Computer Recycling Programs; (4) Parent Donations; and (5) Redesigned Lessons.
