As the end of the year approaches some of you are going on field trips while others are thinking ahead to next year and some things you might like to try. As always, I want to encourage you to include technology in most things you do with your students. It's expected by the Common Core State Standards and can really enhance the learning experience for your kiddos. With that in mind I've linked you to an article that I read from the folks at Education Week: Mobile Apps Make Field Trips More Interactive.
Remember too, that even if you don't have tablets or smartphones available, having students using a digital camera to document the trip and a website like Animoto to create a digital show with annotations about the images also counts as technology integration too. :)
