Tool 11

I like wordle. I could make one and have the kids pick out words that they have to define. Maybe have them post them on wallwisher.
I am not sure how this has changed my thinking about teaching with technology in my classroom. There is way too much information here for me to digest in one sitting. This will take time to revamp the curriculum to include much of this stuff. We have so much to teach and get the kids ready for EOC that I am not sure what to do. I am on overload with all of this. I find it playing more than teaching. I remember just a few years ago we were to NOT have a facebook account or twitter account for kids to communicate with us and now you are telling us that we should. What a change. I am not a blogger type person so not much it going to come out of that.

  1. Oh, the days of the instructional technology masters program... So much has changed since then. With the ease of generating content in the world of Web 2.0 and everyone choosing to participate, there is a lot out there. I think you really have to pick and choose what works for you. I would think the pHet website would be a great tool for use in your classroom for starters. There are even teacher created lessons on the site for you to use or tweak to fit your needs. Blogging isn't for everyone, but I feel confident that you will find your niche!
