Tammy Worcester is one of the featured presenters in the TCEA 2011 Conference. Tammy's sessions have often been well attended by many teachers since her sessions focused on the meaningful use of technology in content areas. She demonstrates how technology can help teachers save time, be productive and efficient with available technology resources, and integrate technology seamlessly in everyday teaching and learning experiences (the real deal! *grin*).
Let's face it, technology is here to stay. We need to keep up with the changes and be able to understand as to how technology resources can facilitate and enhance instruction. With the thousands of web-based resources, online tips and tricks, and applications available for intellectual consumption, it is quite overwhelming! Teachers cannot afford to waste time exploring and finding resources that they can use in the classroom, especially if they teach in a test-driven environment. They need help and we need to recognize and support them in whatever way we can. Tammy is able to help address this constant problem by bringing technology resources that she has used, tested, and evaluated for teacher use. As a veteran in the education field, her vast experiences in classroom teaching provide authenticity and reliability on the resources she has selected for teaching and learning.
Now, what are Tammy's favorite FREE web tools and resources? Here are a few that you can use in your classroom that I find interesting (and believe me...there are many to explore! *smile*):
