Week 1: Free Post (Technology for my classroom)

Photo Credit: Microsoft Office Images One thing that I would like to incorporate into my Kindergarten classroom is the use of digital cameras for the kids. This would be a great tool to have in centers as an accountability resource. I could have a task set up in a center, and after students have completed that task, then they could take a picture of it, and move to the next center. Students would be responsible for uploading the images to the computer and saving them at the end of center time. When I need to assess what they completed, I would simply find the photo on the computer.


  1. Rosalyn, What an interesting idea! I teach first graders, and as I was reading this I was thinking, could they do this? Are they capable? And then my 3 1/2 year old came up to me with my iPhone and asked to play "her games!" Oh yea, the kids could do it, and boy would they be engaged! Great idea - for accountability, teaching technology, and engagement. I may borrow your idea.

  2. great hands on project idea... I talk video journalism to fifth and sixth graders and had on-camera news readers as young as second grade. Of course everyone, especially kindergarteners were more than happy to be interviewed by older students. :-)
