I’m always asking myself how I can differentiate, make learning exciting and creative, and engage with technology to help students develop computer literacy skills. Last year, I taught a writing class for an entire semester completely on computers. I housed all of my resources for students on a Google Site. Some elements of this worked well, while others were quite challenging. For example, it was great to have a central hub for information, but there was no easy way for students to save or submit their work. Over the last year, I’ve aggregated a list of most helpful resources for integrating technology in the classroom. I use many of these resources to differentiate for students who are struggling in my Language Arts class without having to create tons of new materials for students.
