Teaching in the 21st Century is a blast for so many reasons! I love learning about new and innovative ways to integrate technology to educate my students! One of the oldest ways that I have been making videos in my classroom has been using an i-Pod Touch and a Pico Pocket Projector. It is a quick and easy way to show instant movies. It is also fun to project the movies on the ceiling and have everyone enjoy the video lying down. Movies I have done in the past include reader's theatre, sight word play-doh, number mats with tens frame, flannel board stories, and human tooth brushing demonstration.

It is small and very portable.
I am finally in a wonderful school district where there are many devices to help integrate technology. (The reason I have not had time to blog!!) I am looking forward to learning more ways to utilize all the technology resources I have and share them!!
