We know students excel at learning and implementing new technology quickly. At a time when both educators and students have to be creative and resourceful to keep the learning going, why not put those tech savvy abilities to use?
A number of exciting tools can be used to help students continue using their voices as they document their learning experiences. From podcasts to YouTube channels, we can help our students stay connected to each other and be heard.
In his latest School Library Connection article, librarian and columnist Tom Bober describes the different ways technology can help students use their voices, drawing from Stacy Brown’s new book, The School Librarian’s Technology Playbook: Innovative Strategies to Inspire Teachers and Learners (Libraries Unlimited 2020).
Check out Bober’s article, as well as his accompanying lesson plan, to help K-5 students use podcasting to tell their own stories!
