Tech Favorites!

It is our privilege to announce the winners of our 2008 Best in Tech Awards.

What separates Scholastic Administr@tor from other education leadership publications, in print and online, is that we share technology solutions rather than just products. Every award winner chosen as the Best in Tech has been handpicked and carefully evaluated by our expert administrator-level reviewers.

The Best in Tech Award Winners from the 2008–2009 school year will be recognized at a formal awards ceremony during NECC 2009. While the 2008–2009 awards have concluded, we are now choosing our 2009–2010 Best in Tech winners. We are always interested in hearing successful use of education solutions and products by our readers. We invite you to send suggestions to Ken Royal at kroyal@scholastic.com.

We are honored to present Scholastic Administr@tor’s Best in Tech Award Winners for 2008–2009. Congratulations from all of us!

    Literacy Lessons for a Digital World

    Literacy Lessons for a Digital World

    by Jamie E. Diamond;Meg C. Gaier

    A language arts and math teacher have teamed together to create technology-rich lessons that teach the key literacy skills and strategies demanded by the CCSS in a highly motivating way. Use digital storytelling to retell myths, go on a geometry scavenger hunt, create a travel "commercial" for a historical place, and so much more. Tap into the power of wikis to facilitate literature discussions, build background knowledge with inquiry circles in science, collect practical applications of math concepts, present research on history topics—and that’s just the beginning! With model lessons and dozens of lesson ideas for every content area, how-to’s for getting started with the technology, assessment tips, and sample videos, you’ll find everything you need to teach with technology today!
