In this lesson, a high school ELA teacher describes how she integrated technology to meet the learning goals of a unit about the Holocaust. What is significant in this video is how well the teacher used instructional moves with the technology to keep the students on-task. Rather than allowing them to just "Google", she sent them to pre-selected websites that were authoritative and focused the students on the learning goals. The teacher also had the students working individually, but integrated share-alouds and reflective thinking opportunities to work as a class to come up with a project to support Darfur.
