So what are some examples of how technology has saved you time and helped you connect with parents?
“I am using Schoology to give weekly spelling tests! The tests can be saved for future years and tests are graded instantly. I am able to send pictures and updates to parents through technology that would have otherwise went home on paper. We all know how second graders misplace papers!” – Christina Marvin
What advice would you give teachers who are just beginning to integrate technology?
“If I can give any suggestions it would be to just try it! Use the valuable resources you have in colleagues and CBD to get your questions answered and just jump in to it! ” – Christina Marvin
