Teaching Technology vs. Using Tech to Teach


As a computer technology teacher I'm asked frequently by teachers what tech is available for teaching their content in their classroom. Occasionally teachers want to actually teach a tech subject in their classroom.
In previous blogs I've referred teachers to various sites:
Websites for your classroom
Web 2.0 that you can use
Making sense of PARCC test prep tools

What's important to keep in mind is teaching technology is totally different from using technology to enhance understanding of other content. 

Before using technology to enhance the teaching in your classroom it's important to make sure students know how to use the technology. 

My 3 go-to sites for teaching basic tech concepts and safety: 

Internet Safety learning.com Easy Tech: Internet Safety (Free in Ohio)‧ Online safety instruction and compliance reporting that exceeds E-Rate requirements

Responsible Use of Technology
Netsmartz Educator pageNS Teens can help teachers build an Internet safety curriculum with a free collection of teaching materials including videos, lesson plans, and games.

Document applications & Google DriveGCFLearnFree.org 
By delivering more than 1,100 lessons to millions of people all over the world ABSOLUTELY FREE, GCFLearnFree.org is a worldwide leader in online education. 



These sites are easy to use with curriculum already developed and a wide range of skills covered.  Since Internet Safety could mean anything from profile pictures to identity theft going through the sites and selecting the topics you want to cover within the site is much more comprehensive than searching several sites for the same topics.

  2. I would think that one of the best ways to teach students about future tech trends is to get them actively using them in the classroom... so I suppose that's where a lot of that confusion stems from. (Hah, "STEMS"!)
