Welcome Back with a New Educator Tools Page!
We hope you had a memorable summer break and are as excited as we are for the new school year!
While you were away, INFOhio was busy implementing enhancements to many tools and resources. Perhaps the largest change is to Educator Tools, which now combines the contents of the former INFOhio Toolkit and INFOhio Curriculum Toolbox into one user-friendly interface. As always, the resources here support Ohio's Learning Standards and align inquiry skills with current educational trends and practices. You can search or browse by subject, grade level, or instructional trend to find articles, videos, digital resources, lesson plans, flyers, tip sheets, and more to help students master skills.
You can search by keywords or click on a subject heading. The left hand side of the page has limiters for Grade Level, Subject, Instructional Trends, Dimensions of Inquiry and more. Choosing a limiter automatically updates the results, which means you spend less time sifting through results.
Upcoming Storia Webinars
You may have heard of Bookflix, INFOhio’s free ebook service for PreK-3rd grade, but have you looked at Storia? Storia (www.storiaschool.com) provides 160 ebooks and online reading tools for 4th grade students. Over the summer, Scholastic made changes to the log in procedure and how teachers must add classes and students. Join one of four upcoming webinars to learn more about how to set up and implement Storia in your classroom.

Technology Integration is somewhat of a broad term these days for the teachers who teach the leaders of tomorrow, our students. It can be difficult to see the true meaning of what it means to be a technology integration teacher. In the simplest of terms, technology integration is simply the use of technology in daily instruction to improve student learning. Therefore, for every content area, every teacher, and every student, it is going to look a little different for each. First off, the technology you offer in your lesson is only as good as the lesson itself. When a teacher is planning a lesson, he or she needs to evaluate their class to see if the technology that is being suggested for the lesson will truly benefit that certain group of students.
Technology Integration Specialist always try to teach the newest technologies that can be used in your classroom. We try to keep up on trends in the educational space that will enlighten and in better your students learning. There are ten things that I have personally seen stand out as the go to technology integration methods and strategies to look at.
