Now that technology has become an essential element in our teaching practice and pedagogy, the need to develop effective search skills to allow us to deftly navigate the web has become even more persistent. Fortunately, platforms such as Common Sense Education can tremendously help us in this quest. It features a wide variety of EdTech tools’ recommendations as reviewed by fellow teachers and educators. It also provides collections of pre-made lesson plans that teachers and educators can appropriate to their own teaching situations. These lesson plans are digitally focused and integrate a number of educational web tools and mobile apps to provide teachers with practical working examples of the effective use of technology in classroom. Teachers can also create their own lesson plans and share them with the education community in Common Sense. To do so registration is required.
Before you create your own tech-rich lesson plan, you may want to check lesson plans other have already created. You can either check the ‘Featured lesson Plans’ section on the right hand side to view a number of suggested lesson plans or search the site for specific lesson plans. You can filter your search using criteria such as subject and grades. Watch the video below to learn more about Lesson Flows. Enjoy
