Tech Ed Resources for your Classroom–Organize Your Classroom

Posted by on August 16, 2014

digital classroomI get a lot of questions from readers about what tech ed resources I use in my classroom so I’m taking a few days this summer to review them with you. Some are edited and/or written by members of the Ask a Tech Teacher crew. Others, by tech teachers who work with the same publisher I do. All of them, I’ve found well-suited to the task of scaling and differentiating tech skills for age groups, scaffolding learning year-to-year, taking into account the perspectives and norms of all stakeholders, with appropriate metrics to know learning is organic and granular.

Today: Organizing your classroom


13 videos (more added as they become available), approx. 30 minutes per webinar, show how to set up your classroom to be tech-infused.

What’s Included

Do you wonder how to set up an effective, exciting, motivating classroom to teach tech? It’s not difficult–but there are steps you must take that are different from a grade-level or subject-specific classroom. Watch these videos at the start of school and often throughout the year to understand how to integrate tech into your classes and how to help students use tech to get the most from their education adventure. Webinars included:

  • Set up your tech class
  • How to create a class internet start page–and why
  • How to teach a tech lesson
  • 6 topics to teach in every lesson     
  • How to talk to stakeholders about tech
  • Keyboarding in 45 minutes a week
  • Problem solving (that’s tech problems)
  • Presentation Boards (tech problem solving, tech vocabulary, and Google Earth)
  • Digital note taking in the classroom
  • Digital citizenship
  • Blogging in the classroom
  • Differentiation with tech
  • Grading technology

More are added as they are made available.
