Hi, everyone.... I am currently authoring a teacher resource book for Teacher Created Materials, Inc. which will be titled "Integrating Technology into the Science Curriculum" (Challenging Level - Grades 5 - 8). I would like to ask if any of you who are teaching science at these grade levels would share any ideas as to how you are integrating technology into your lessons. I don't need you to send me lesson plans, but if you have any super ideas that you think other teachers could benefit from reading about, I'd LOVE to include them in the book. This would include using particular types of hardware, or different software products (both Mac and Windows platforms), and any internet activities (sharing data via telecommunications or super websites you think teachers should know about). I would REALLY like to hear about what pieces of software you use in your classrooms. My previous job was as a computer resource teacher and my main objective was to teach our students and faculty to utilize all the components of Microsoft Works and to integrate those into their curriculum. I'd like to know about success stories with other specific topic software. I'm still thinking about how to incorporate your great ideas into the book. If there are enough ideas, it may wind up being a section in the book with a title like "Super Suggestions from Super Teachers." (Hey.... I think we need to pat ourselves on the back whenever we have the opportunity!!) Thank you in advance for any super ideas you will share. Please respond via email. Thanks!!
