Reflection: Lesson Planning Slash Your Carbon Footprint - Section 1: Engage: Listen To It


Integrate technology into your lesson planning. Technology is more than a should be a seamless component of your curriculum. Before adding technology to a lesson, here are some questions to think about:

How do you want to incorporate technology into the lesson?

What is your goal for using technology with this lesson?

How is the lesson better with technology?

What do I want my students to learn by using technology?

Some online resources that I found to be useful when lesson planning include:

NPR News - There is also an NPR News app for your tablet and/or Smartphone

NPR Podcasts

Science360 - National Science Foundation (also available as an app)

SciFri - Science Friday Podcasts (produced by Science Friday Initiative, nonprofit organization)
