Integration begins with good instruction. The technology may introduce, reinforce, extend, enrich, demonstrate, or assess learning, but it does not usurp the teacher's role as guide and facilitator.

Drawing Projects:

Students of all ages should draw regularly. This gives a glimpse into a child's mind and demonstrates what the student has learned. Rule of thumb: the older the student, the longer it takes to draw. Primary students take 10-15 minutes; intermediate need 30-45; and middle schoolers need 45-90 minutes.
