    Google Resources on the topic
    Fairly easy means to make a website. Similar to a wiki or blog in it's construction, but permissions would be different. Good option if kids were going to be making a website. I would likely not expect to see any k-6 students working with Google Sites, however, with a project and group and parent/teacher support/supervision, this might be a viable option to motivate and extend a project.

    What do we know about he effects of Technology on student achievement?
    Keynote focuses on:
    Interactive whiteboards and responding
    Formative assessment and record keeping
    Teacher input
    Worked with Promethean Technology
    85 teachers participated.
    Prometheon study found that:
    even those who didn’t use the interactive whiteboards gained 14 percentile points
    17 percentile increase was significant as compared to the norm.
    IMPORTANT - all educational research is equivical = you can’t take out all the variables of a classroom for a conclusive result in a study.
    Interactive whiteboards were most beneficial in conjunction with years of teaching and months of use of wb.
    Percentage of time - increased use up to 75-80 percent (29 percent gain) and then dropped after the percent of time became more.
    Confedence directly determined success. Teacher who has been using tech for 2 years, uses the tech (board) for 75 percent of the time does well.
    Requires professional development...23 effect size went down because of lack of use/understanding
    Weaker teachers need TEACHER TRAINING and tech training.

Suggestions
    Keep clear focus on the content and not the bells and whistles
    Keep track of which students are getting it and which are not. RESPONSE RATES - if they are responding, they are active and interacting with the content.
    ..... responding with new technologies (whiteboards, thumbs up/down, responders)
    Findings show that right and wrong” type answers do not work (do harm). Effective strategies are those that promote interaction and discussion.
    Responders
    Cannot rely only on one assessment. Tech can provide more effective daily/frequent assessment.
    using state testing to make decisions on one student is worthless. For trends of a class to school to district, it improves, but issolating a student is not worthy.
