P ROJECT B ASED L EARNING AND M ULTIMEDIA IN M Y C LASSROOM I used PowerPoint as a review tool in Math My students create PowerPoints as a digital yearbook project for their fifth grade year I integrated Webquests and online field trips Students also compared and contrasted city life and country life in an online unit
I NTERACTIVITY I used computer based games and PowerPoints, such as Jeopardy, to review for tests.Jeopardy I also have used problem based games, such as Jamestown to help students empathize and comprehend what life was like in the past.

I N S UMMARY … Even though I love staying home with my daughter, I enjoy working part-time because I love teaching, too. Technology has always been a part of my teaching, but I would like to it take a larger role in my classroom. My goal is to take what I have been doing and make it current to what’s happening now in 2010!
