The most successful lessons I have had with the students have been end of unit reviews. The students really enjoy "playing" with the smart board. Whether it is an interactive crossword puzzle, vocabulary race, drag and drop or beat the timer pictionary the participation and enthusiasm level is high.
Each time I do a review, I modify it for the student group; however, I would love to be able to have 2 people write on the smartboard at the same time.
I continue to try to integrate technology into my classes when ever I have the time to prep for it. I would like to have students create videos/ audio files of labs or presentations in the classroom for an "LACS virtual library." I would also like to have students maintain a classroom blog. Most of my students are very net savvy and tech ready...unfortunately, not all of my students have equal access to computers or gadgets outside of the classroom, so what we provide in the classroom is the extent of their experiences.
