Abstract

This article presents four technology-integrated activities that engage elementary students in learning. These educational technology activities were designed to be easily duplicated and modified by teachers for their students. The constructivist framework of the activities motivates students to be creative and to use problem-solving skills. Most of the technology-integrated activities were developed using the Internet and/or Microsoft programs that are commonly available, such as MS Word (2007), MS Excel (2007), and MS Paint (2001). The curriculum-designed activities integrate technology into a variety of subject areas; mathematics, science, art, social studies, and language arts. The technology activities included are Playing Musical Computers with Creative Writing; What’s the Connection?; Be an Artist, Paint a Picture-Story; and Where in the World is…? Each technology-integrated activity includes a description, an illustrated example of the activity, engaging activities for student to construct their learning, and ideas for presenting and sharing the projects.
