Integrating Tech ideas
I hope this board can be more active in the coming year, purely for selfish reasons as I will be teaching tech in my school. I have a bsic curriculum in mind, but it will have to be tweaked a lot in order to achieve my goal of integrating tech into our school STEM mission statement.

I am doing a presentation for teachers during our BOY PD. One of the things I would like to do is to generate a list/pictures to show of great ways to integrate tech in ways that go beyond substitution - which I feel is what most of us do most of the time in order to get them thinking. I don't want everyone making green screen videos and becoming part of them - although that is so cool! So, my question to you is:

What are some of the best things you do with tech?
What ideas do you have? What grade levels has it worked well with?
How do you use tech to support student learning and practice beyond research, typing and making presentations?
How do you integrate robotics?

If you can add anything not covered in my questions, please do. If you have pictures to illustrate the concept/idea, please add. Websites, too - although it is overwhelming reading 100's of websites. That is where I am now.
