Students seemed to enjoy this activity, but the real test will be when I assess if they comprehended their books. It’s important to me to use technology in a way that is effective in the learning process. Not just using technology because its technology! Reading is thinking and students were thinking about their books as they responded to their peers about their texts.
Technology is always engaging to students, but how do I use it efficiently and effectively? I’m starting the journey of incorporating Chromebooks into my classroom. Today students used their Chromebooks to interact through the website Today’s Meethttps://todaysmeet.com/home. Students were reading in literature circles but instead of filling out their graphic organizer, they collaborated through the website. Students asked questions, typed hard words, and shared their favorite parts.
