Show Off Technology – Student Emails

If your students are using technology in your classroom there are many ways to show off their work to visitors.  I make sure that every bulletin board in my classroom clearly demonstrates how technology is used by my students everyday.

Instead of exit slips to check understanding at the end of a lesson, my students email me what they have learned and any questions they still have.

  • Each iPad in my classroom (this works with PCs too) is set up with the same email account.
  • I post a question or quick task on the board.
  • Students answer the question in an email and send it to me.
  • I print out the emails, write a comment on the bottom, and staple it to my bulletin board.

It is clear to any visitor (our principal, superintendent, maybe even Mayor Bloomberg) that students use technology with ease in my classroom.

  1. What email do the kids have on their iPad? Ours have none… But I am looking for SAFE and secure ideas!

    1. Hi Kristin, I set up one Google account on all devices and the students write their name in the subject lines – they don’t access the mail or receive email, just send it out from their device.
