Tech Tools and Tips

Technology can be great – when it works. In this issue, we’re looking at tech tools and tips to make the technology you use a help and not a hindrance.




Ah…technology.  Most days, it’s a wonderful thing.  But it can also be incredibly stressful to use in the classroom.  There are always hiccups and you’ve got to feel comfortable with the unknown.

But when technology works, it is a true gamechanger for our students.  Everything from classroom management to assessment to augmented reality can be done on almost any device.  And while this buffet of choices is incredible, it can also be overwhelming.

In this issue, we’re tackling which tech tools are the best ones for teachers to use when connecting to arts integration and STEAM.  We’re also providing helpful tips and strategies to make the most of the technology you already have, along with some new options to consider.  And, we’re breaking it down into manageable parts, so no matter what your skill level, you can have success with technology in the classroom.

I also encourage you to explore the articles from our newest guest writers.  We are thrilled to welcome them to the team, and I think you’ll find their ideas fresh and meaningful.

Lastly, be sure to check out our BIG announcement this month – the Winter 2018 Arts Integration and STEAM Online Conference is now open!  AND…legendary author and TED Speaker Dan Pink will be delivering the keynote.  Do be sure to check it out and register this month if you can – it’s the lowest pricing available for this event.

Technology doesn’t have to be stressful.  Click on to read more and discover some fresh new ways to explore the curriculum with our students.
