This is really difficult to write after the fact. Since I have already completed these steps in for my final lesson plan and have already presented it, this is just a technically. However it is difficult to go back before the lesson plan. My main point is that I think technology has a place in the classroom. I just don’t want technology to take my place in the classroom.
The tech infused lesson plan I decide to use for my final project is on geometry. The students will go from basic learning of finding the area of shapes via pencil, paper, and their minds to having me teach virtually and utilizing apps, Smart board, computers; basically anything but a pencil and paper. Hopefully the mind will stay as part of the formula. I will teach third graders in a petcha kutcha style. This resource will be available on our school/classroom blog and will preface the lesson.

The iPad, computer, Smart board, as well as a projector will be the primary tools for students and this lesson.
