Teachers are constantly on the hunt to find ways to make their classroom a better place to learn! Distance Learning forced us all to become tech savvy overnight! Check out some of the amazing Technology Finds for the Classroom on Amazon that we could simply not live without!
Document Cameras are the number one technology tool that we use in our classrooms! Students need to be able to see what they are learning. We have one for our classrooms and our homes! We love how we can just share our screen and our students can see exactly what we are talking about!
Headset with Mic
When we are recording or teaching virtually, a headset with mic is the only way to go. I found myself saying, “Can you repeat that again?” or having to record my lessons again because the volume was terrible. I grabbed a headset with mic my first week into Distance Learning and I am soooo glad I did!
Blue Light Blockers
If you are anything like me, migraines can ruin your day! Staring at a computer screen can take a toll on our eyes. I purchased a screen and glasses to use and I (knock on wood) haven’t had a migraine yet! The glasses were recommended by my doctor and they have definitely been a game-changer!
Let’s just say that the angle that all of our monitors are at are a little, ummmm… unflattering!!!! When we found out we would be streaming our lessons and recording our lessons, we knew we needed a quick fix! Monitor risers were our answer!
Tripod Light Rings
While we are on the subject of unflattering… can we say, “Give me all the help I can get?” Our solution: LIGHTS, camera, teach! Other than the light being more flattering, it also allows students to see what we are doing! My students couldn’t even see the books we were reading aloud to them. These light rings have been one of our favorite purchases. We love how there are 3 different light settings to choose from!
Every year, for the past 3 years, we have bought a class set of earbuds for our students. Earbuds are a very inexpensive solution to all of those distracting noises. Background noises can keep students from being able to focus on their work!
Ever feel like Post-Its take over your workspace? I grabbed one of my kid’s writing tablets to put next to me at my desk. As I am teaching I take quick notes and then delete when I’m done. I can’t imagine how much paper I will save this way!
Going back and forth between school and home might as well be cute! We love these laptop bags! There are so many choices to choose from!
Ever feel like you lost your voice at the end of the day? Of course you have! We’re teachers! A voice amplifier might just be our favorite Technology Finds for the Classroom. Our voices are saved, the sound quality is amazing and the students can hear us! We love using these during direct instruction. Our students know that we we have our voice amplifier on, they better listen up!
Cute Office Decor
Okay, we could probably live without all of this, but WHHHHHYYYYYY??? If I’m going to be spending a ton of time in front of my computer screen, I better like the things around me, right? The possibilities are endless!
