Welcome to My Tech Classroom!

Hi, I'm Emily. Welcome to my blog about creating a classroom where students of all ages enjoy learning! If you are here, you may be a teacher or parent looking for ideas, especially about using technology in the classroom.

Teaching young children, starting with my own son and daughter, is the joy of my life. I started teaching in a conventional classroom with a whiteboard and a laptop and learned quickly the many ways today’s technology can enhance the learning experience.

To take advantage of this, I researched many different devices and thought, why not share my findings with other teachers, so they don’t have to spend the time and energy doing it? My Blog was born and thanks to your feedback, I have learned it was well worth it.

My Tech Classroom

My Tech Classroom is not only the name of my blog, but it is also a description of my own classroom. I have been teaching elementary school for six years with the aim of instilling a love of learning in my students as well as my own children. I have very specific ideas of how a classroom can be organized to make learning easier and more convenient for the learners.

I use color-coded bins for arts and craft supplies, an overhead projector for larger than life images, a mailbox for each student to enhance personal attention as well as organization, and I keep everything in order so the children have an uncluttered view of whatever lesson is happening.

Where to start?

My Blog focuses on the following three categories that will upgrade your classroom and have a huge impact on the motivation of your students.

Technology Equipment

Smartboards, listening centers, tablets, chick egg incubators and digital microscopes are just a few of the items that are essential in the classroom for engaging the tech-savvy youth of today.
