    I would love to use digital resources, but we are not 1:1 school and makes it a bit hard. Most times I have to shuffle my schedule just to fint it in. But it is all worth it!

    The most frustrating part to me is when the technology at our school isn’t updated on all of our I pads so only about half the kiddos get google classroom. I was told it would work on all of them.

    I use technology almost every day in my classroom! We are 1:1 with iPads. I would say the hardest part is keeping students on the sites we need them on. They’ve learned how to get around our locks!

    The most frustrating part of using technology is the unreliability of it! Sometimes it’s the WiFi or the Chromebook…there is a lot of troubleshooting involved!

    I use technology everyday. I am teaching K-6 technology classes for the first time after 20 years of teaching 5th grade! It was a shock, but I am loving it. The hardest part of my job is fitting everything in to 40 minute classes. I see them once a week for 40 minutes and I wish I could see them more. I have also found that it is EXTREMELY difficult for some Kindergartners to distinguish between some letters on the keyboard. Even though today is Feb 1, I still have some students that type the “i” in place of the letter “l”, because the “i” is a capital on the keyboard and looks like a lowercase “L”. Even with all the struggles, I love going to work at my new job each day. Seeing their faces when they learn something new or they complete a lesson makes my day. 🙂

    I use technology everyday in the classroom! I love it and my students love it! They teach me new things about websites and chrome use regularly! We take spelling tests, practice vocabulary, create slide shows, and assignments through google classroom. I’m so excited to try the digital task cards!! My students love task cards ! Making them digital will cut down on my prep time and everyone can have their own copy with the press of a button!!

    I love digital work that can be pushed out via google classroom. We are not a 1:1 school so we share devices and that can be hard at times but we make it work. The engagement level is so high when using technology it encourages students’ best work.
