Final project for EDT 505 submitted by Gina Dombrowski

In this video I am showing some ways technology can be used in the classroom. The lesson took place was in a second grade ELA skills group where the students learned the difference between common and proper nouns. The main technology used in this lesson was Educanon. Educanon allows you to take any video and edit it to insert questions throughout, making the video more of an educational learning experience for your students.
