Digital learning is becoming increasingly popular, especially since students nowadays are connected to (and surrounded by) technology in a way that no other generation before them has been. So it’s only natural that educators are leveraging said technology to get students excited about the subjects they’re learning. In fact, a recent survey by the Consortium for School Networking revealed that more than 50 percent of classrooms now have 1:1 devices. And for those that don’t yet have 1:1 programs, many schools are improvising with bring your own device programs, which allow students to bring laptops, tablets, and smartphones from home and to use them in the classroom.
Despite the increasing popularity of technology in the classroom, according to the 4th Annual Educator Confidence Report, 72 percent of teachers feel that they’re not yet making the most of what technology has to offer them and their students. The reason being that many lack the time and space to plan, create, and integrate digital resources into their instruction.
One solution is to leverage the device-based resources that TpT Teacher-Authors across grades and subjects have created. In fact, nearly 13,000 resources have been uploaded to the TpT site in the last 12 months alone to help meet your digital needs. Below, we’ve listed a few examples of device-based resources on TpT that can help get you started in your quest to go digital.
