My number one goal as an educator is to create a safe, fun, engaging, and inclusive community. I kept these goals in mind as I created my assignments for ED 424. Throughout this semester, this class has helped me realize that technology is an excellent way to make sure every student is getting the support and resources they need to succeed. We can have voice-to-text, we can have the computer read out to our kids, our students can record their answers instead of writing them down…. the possibilities truly are endless. Below, are some of the activities I designed in my ED Tech class that I believe would promote acceptance and equal opportunity for all. I look forward to using these tools, and many others as I step into my own classroom someday!
Foster a welcoming space on day 1
Normalize + Validate all feelings
Show ALL kinds of diversity
Autonomy is key
Make learning an adventure for everyone!!
