It is not about teaching; it is about learning

It never ceases to amaze me how much technology there is "out there" for teachers. Although I feel as though I'm "in touch" with the technology world (through social media and many other tech tools I touch base with daily), have attended many technology conferences and work very closely with a tech guru, I had never heard of the site, "Cool Tool for Schools". I am blown away by the accessibility of this site... everything you ever needed to know about tech tools for teachers can be found…Continue

No teacher should be left behind on this one. Every curricular area, every grade level, anyway to inspire kids can be found here. My colleagues are sure to find their techy side with this.

For the class I am taking this semester we were assigned a couple of "capstone" assignments to put what we had learned this semester to the test. It was interesting on my part.

I really enjoyed Module 5. We were told that it would be among the most important - if not the most important - module we complete in our course. It involved reviewing national standards for teaching online and innovative teaching and use of technology in our institutions. I discovered that I met most of the standards, having been involved in the elearning industry for the past 10 years. We then were offered two options for one of the activities. I quickly jumped on the activity involving…Continue

One thing I will take away with me from this class....is that the work I I thought would never done, is now really never done. There is always something to be reading about or researching about or "tweeking". The realm of technology is endless. I have learned so much in these last three months and excited about the knowledge I had acquired, I couldn't wait to go to school the next day and share it.
The information I will continue to use are the prezi, the cool tools for…Continue
