Think of it as just a regular part of your day. Don’t be intimidated. Expect difficulties.Expect difficulties
21 st Century Skills The focus is not on the tool, the program, or the equipment. The focus is on developing a classroom of independent critical thinkers who can adapt, adjust, create, collaborate, problem solve, and transfer knowledge from medium to another.

Favorite Tool: Digital Camera First Some Tips: Give yourself peace of mind- have students wear a neck strap or use the wrist strap. Show students how to use memory stick. Use a portable card reader.
