Back to School Bundle

Lots of teachers want to integrate tech into their class but picking what to use among the thousands of offerings is daunting. Here are five tools you can start Day One and use throughout the year:

25 Digital Tools in the Classroom

The 56-page 25 Digital Tools in the Classroom is a thorough discussion on which are the most useful tools in any K-8 classroom, classified by appropriate grade level. This includes popular digital tools such as blogs, backchannel devices, vocabulary decoding tools, avatars, digital portfolios, digital note-taking, and more.

This is the same as the Ask a Tech Teacher resource, 25 Digital Tools in the Classroom You don’t need to purchase both.

65 Posters for Your Classroom

Topics cover keyboarding, digital citizenship, search/research/ mouse skills, problem-solving, critical thinking, digital devices, shortkeys, reading, classroom of tomorrow, technology skills, and more. 

This is the same as the Ask a Tech Teacher resource, 65 Posters for Your Classroom. You don’t need to purchase both.

Digital Notetaking in Your Classroom

Digital note-taking has benefits paper-and-pencil note-taking doesn’t—like sharing, collaborating, saving everywhere. Have students become familiar with approaches from traditional word processing tools to web-based tools like, Google Docs, Flipboard, Evernote/OneNote, and Twitter. 

This is the same as the Ask a Tech Teacher resource, Digital Notetaking in your Classroom. You don’t need to purchase both.

Twitter in the Classroom

Introduce the brevity of Twitter’s 140-character limit in writing. Use it in a variety of tasks where that sort of pithiness is best-suited–backchannel device, collaboration, journaling, note-taking, quick assessments. Designed for Middle School, it’s aligned with Common Core and ISTE Standards and includes a rubric for assessment, as well as over a dozen other methods to assess learning.

This is the same as the Ask a Tech Teacher resource, Twitter in the Classroom. You don’t need to purchase both.

14 Non-writing Options to Teach Writing

Not all kids are born writers. Some are artists, musicians, comedians, or another variety of visual learners. In this 20-page collection, we show you 14 ways to meet these students where they are most comfortable as they learn how to communicate ideas with words. You get lesson ideas (not complete lesson plans, but enough to get your creativity going), samples (where possible), and assessment strategies.

This is the same as the Ask a Tech Teacher resource, 14 Non-writing Options to Teach Writing. You don’t need to purchase both.

Coaching or Mentoring

BOGO — Buy one month; get the second free

Do any of these sound like you?

  • Your kindergartners don’t know what ‘enter’, ‘spacebar’, ‘click’ or many other techie words mean but you need to teach them to keyboard, internet, and become digital citizens. How do you start?
  • You have new students in your class who haven’t had technology training. The rest of the class has. How do you catch them up?
  • Your principal wants you to teach the technology class but you’ve never done it before. What do you do on the first day?
  • You’ve been teaching for twenty years but now your Principal wants technology integrated into your class. Where do you start?
  • You have a wide mix of tech skills among students in your class. How do you differentiate between student geeks and students who wonder what the right mouse button is for?
  • You’ve been tasked with organizing a Technology Use Plan for your school. Where do you start?
  • You and colleagues are expected to create a Curriculum Map. How does technology fit into that?
  • You love being an edtech professional but what’s your career path?

More and more teachers–both new and experienced–are looking for coaching or mentoring to fill gaps in their learning, keep up to date on the latest teaching strategies, and solve problems they didn’t expect. Many turn to the personalized approach we offer in a collaboration between Ask a Tech Teacher, Jacqui Murray, and Structured Learning. Coaching is completed via Google Hangout with email available for quick questions. After only a short time, teachers find they are better prepared with tech-infused lesson plans, able to teach to standards more fluently, can integrate tech into core classroom time, easily differentiate for student needs with tech, and more.

“Once a month, pick my brain. I’ll share what I’ve learned and what works from 25 years of teaching.” –Jacqui Murray

Normally, we charge a $150 per month with a two month minimum (for a total of $300). This month on the 2nd, get both months of coaching or mentoring for only $150.
