Using Technology In The Classroom
Welcome to Butterfly Classrooms
A record of using technology in the classroom.
Here you will find lots of tips and ideas for any teacher that want to ensure that their classroom is still relevant in the 21st century. As well as my personal reflections, experiences and the lessons I learned.
Let me coordinate the digital transformation of your whole school.
Custom designed and hands-on training for both teachers and learners.
Research & Reviews
An independent opinion on all the newest models and products.
I create resources and assignments especially for digital use.
Sign up for any of a number of online courses that I have available.
Reports & Policies
Let me take the pain out of creating the required reports and policies.
Just because kids know how to use Twitter, Snapchat and Instagram, doesn’t mean they know how to use technology to enhance their learning.
Training should be something you can use on Monday, not someday!
We need to make the positives so loud that the negatives becomes almost impossible to hear.
Shifting education begins with teaching students how to learn, instead of what to learn.
Don’t ask your students to learn, if you are not willing to continue learning yourself.
I am not a fan of technology.
I am a fan of pedagogy, of understanding how people learn and the most effective learning methods.
But technology enables some exciting changes.

In practice established curricula and teaching methods remain in place under a thin coating of technological glitter, and available technology is often underused and poorly integrated into classroom practice.
