Technology Buddies

Type of strategy: CollaborationGroup ManagementProcessing

Learning styles: ES: Extraversion and Sensing

Remember the old reading buddies? This is a 21st Century version.

Directions: 

Buddy up your more technology experienced upper grade students with your less experienced primary students.  Have the older students develop lessons to use with the primary students that develop technology skills and citizenship.

We've used Comis Life, iPhoto, and iMovie to help young students create book reports, hoilday cards and movie shorts. 

Not only do our younger students get the experience of using the technology but our older students become mentors and teachers.
