Technology in the classroom

I think technology can be extremely useful in the classroom. I have worked at schools that have had little to no technology and a school that is technology heavy. I have noticed a lot of tools in the school that had technology that I would like to use in my future classroom. One tool that I find useful is the Oregon state standards app. Mastery App This app provides all the Oregon state standards organized by subject and grade. You can search all the standards with a keyword to find a standard that fits a lesson, it is a quick way to reference standards when creating or justifying a lesson.
Through doing research for classes this term I have found some amazing online resources for lesson plans, teaching strategies, and classroom management ideas. Here is a list of some of my favorites.
