Because “the best way to learn is to teach”, I have my students share with me (and the class) about something they know about technology. It could be a website, blog, video(s), social media site and/or something new in on-line news. Most students have several ideas to share but If they can not think of something to share, I tell them to begin by doing some research. They can go to websites like www.mashable.com, which has many articles and short video clips about new technologies. Students put together their information into a PowerPoint presentation to share with the class. Many of my technology lessons and website investigations have come from doing this Tech Share exercise with my students. Students are constantly online and have great ideas to share if given the opportunity. Tech Teachers – their ideas can become your future lessons!
Here are a few examples of presentations created by my students…
