4.11.1. Evaluating the technologies used in the various schools and organizations I have worked at or am currently working at was interesting Interestingly enough, the organizations I have worked with had better access to current technology than the public schools I've taught at This really speaks to the inequities in public education concerning technology. This is especially significant in communities with low socioeconomic means Home Page - Hike it Baby I work on the national board for this organization and the technology implemented throughout is top notch, especially considering it's a group focused on getting outdoors with your family Babywearing International of Kitsap Peninsula The second organization that I volunteer for. There is wonderful technology integration especially in the instruction of new baby wearers Recently this organization has also really moved towards inclusion by adding different assistive technologies into their instruction and social media

4.12. Lesson Planning with technology

4.12.1. This lesson made me focus heavily on standards and integrating technology that is useful for a specific lesson Lesson planning with technology seems overwhelming at first, but once you get the general pattern down, it tends to function very fluidly and is extremely helpful in reaching all students
