In 7th Grade Social Studies, I currently use a Promethean board in my classroom. With this board, I incorporate lessons and maps from the Internet, utilize pertinent You Tubes, Google Earth, and utilize a Dukane camera projector on occassion Also, I have used review games and materials designed especially for these types of boards. Other classroom uses of technology include Word, Powerpoint, the Internet, and Webquests. I also have a center of excellence, so that my students can regularly conduct Internet research and create reports and projects. At home, I regularly use SKYPE to communicate with my son in Korea, and other family and friends around the country. I believe SKYPE would be a wonderful Social Studies tool for my students in the future.
