    Integrating Technology with Pathways: Themes 1-4 focuses on the first four themes: Heroes, My World and Others, Living Things and Spiritual Journey. This class considers how to use technology to enhance thematic instruction, vocabulary instruction, concept mapping, guided reading, information literacy, and assessment. Technologies featured include wikis, social bookmarking, free online slideshow tools, Skype, Google Earth, concept mapping software, and more.
    Integrating Technology with Pathways: Themes 5-9 focuses on the last five themes: Friends and Family, Environment, Personal Feelings and Growth, Yesterday, and Social Issues and Culture. Instructional strategies covered in Part 2 include: learning centers, literature circles; writing workshop; digital storytelling; differentiated instruction; and global learning. Technologies featured include wikis, social bookmarking, collaboration tools, VoiceThread, Google Forms, clickers, Microsoft Photostory, Wordle / TagCrowd, and Skype.
