Gadgets make every one's lives a little easier it seems. My friends who are teachers talk about all the coolio gadgets they'd love to have in their classrooms, every weekend when we have coffee.
My mom was a kindergarten teacher for ever it seemed. In the 60's, 70's, and 80's. Pre-technology. Back in the good old mimeograph days. Ahhhh, remember the smell of those? She didn't have anything more technologically advanced than a stapler.
Whether you're a first-year teacher or classroom veteran, incorporate some fresh tools into your classroom to make learning efficient and even more fun. Your students will be excited to learn new materials with the help of these items, especially since we live in a digital generation and kids thrive upon it. (You can always ask your students to be your IT department.) Incorporating new technology will make for fun lesson plans and activities, and hopefully make your life a little easier.
Here are seven new items on the market that are a fit for educators:
Slide Calculator (Staples, $2.99)
Wireless Presenter with Laser Pointer (Staples, $99.49)
Portable MP3/CD Player (Sears, $47.99)
