Instructional technology is absolutely vital in our classrooms to provide multi sensory experience and multiple means of access for those otherwise impaired as well as to provide a means of engagement for all students.

Through video, I set the pace in the classroom, usually using music and movement. This can be seen in videos available on this website.

I also provide learning games such as geography and language games to teach. Here’s an example of a lesson about language origin

On my YouTube channel I provide playlist of videos by subject which students watch for practice. This is global kindergarten and we use these tools every day.

Mathematics applications I recommend are : for students to access their abilities and practice areas where they are having trouble. I also recommend Why U University on You Tube for students preparing to study Algebra.

The wealth of literature available for teaching includes primarily books that have multimedia presentations, especially audiobooks and books read aloud. These are essential for students with visual impairments and or dyslexia. 

My students, even those with dyslexia, are taught cursive writing by explicit methods. But I also provide keyboarding tools and practice as well as the dictation tools such as Dictate Application for iPad, for use by students who are visually impaired.

Science applications that I use frequently include the applications for Nova Elements and the Periodic Table.

I use Skype to work with many students around the world. But I also use other connections to visit online. For example I can offer my students visit to museums online and a chance to visit faraway places via websites and Social Media. For high school students I provide a study of the News that is free from opinions and focuses on new technology and historical events as well as the activities of the United Nations (see tab “News” on this website).
