As a classroom teacher, I would like to provide assistance for the teachers in my school and help them to better utilize the resources they have available in their classrooms. We have a great deal of technology available in our school, but I feel it is being underutilized due to lack of training in how to use it effectively in the classroom. Most of the teachers are younger and able to navigate and physically use the materials, but many do not have the time to implement these tools into their lessons. I am familiar with a number of webinars that can help teachers learn to more efficiently use their resources as well as ideas on how to incorporate them into their lessons. Some additions questions I might pose include:
1. Which tools do you feel like you underutilize in your classroom? (Mimio, computers, LCD projector, Techbook, etc…)
2. How do you currently have your lessons organized?
3. Is there a way to swap out time consuming/inefficient parts of your lessons to include the provided resources?
