      This month’s webinar special guest speakers and elective teachers Cynthia Austria, Aimee Edwards, Tricia Fuglestad, and Jermaine Lobaugh will be sharing their expertise on some of the latest digital tools, mobile apps, and web 2.0 tools that help their classrooms reach new heights. 


      It’s true that more and more electives classrooms are going high-tech.  Art classes are utilizing digital photography with advanced editing software to design original works of art.  Physical Education classes are using mobile apps to set personal goals and track progress.  Even Band and Choral directors are embracing social networks such as Facebook Fan Pages to keep their students informed of upcoming performances. Without a doubt, electives classrooms rock technology integration.

      For this thread, we are curious to know what other technology tools and trends you see being implemented into special area classrooms that support the 21st Century Skills of creativity, critical thinking, communication?
