IT's Elementary!: Integrating Technology in the Primary Grades
In 2004 a traditional Colorado elementary school became National School Library Media Program of the Year. How did they do it? In IT's Elementary! Integrating Technology in the Primary Grades instructional technology specialist Boni Hamilton offers an insider's view of her school's award-winning makeover. Guiding readers through the process of planning and implementing an integrated technology program on a shoestring budget, Hamilton discusses hardware procurement, lab design, curricular remodeling, classroom management, and the importance of a collaborative approach--all with an eye toward developing exciting, standards-based activities for our youngest digital natives.
