Web Literacy For Educators

ISTE- Unbelievable!

You can tell it has been 3 days since my last blog, and with good reason! The last three days have been the most incredible, information packed days I can remember in a very long time. I went into ISTE with a plan. I was truly in need of learning how to manage the modern-day classroom and increase student and teacher efficiency in the classroom. This past year has not been my best in the classroom, and as a reflecting practitioner, I can recognize that.



MY plan was shot all to pieces… Continue

ISTE 2010 Day 2 Part 2 June 27

Posted on June 28, 2010 at 8:00am 0 Comments

While investigating the numerous opportunities and resources available to educators that I was learning about in the SMART workshop, I overtasked my battery and was unable to master the texting that the 2013's have so eloquently managed to do without even looking at a keyboard, so I return today with the rest of yesterday's wonderful enlightenment.

Session 3 by Ms. Hero was very helpful in seeing how interactive whiteboards can make the classroom more efficient and engaging to…

Learning Matters- Technology Strategies for Success

First Session-

Digital Content for Digital Natives:Engaging Today's Tech-Savvy Students

Meg Ormistron

WOW! She's dynamic. She is really showing us what classrooms look like in today's world without technology. My greatest aha has been "We didn't ban pencils when kids could poke others with them, so why are we banning technology(cell phones, etc) from our classrooms?"

Student engagement is…

So I accidentally blew up on Twitter last week.

National Teacher Day was May 9th, and I wanted to recognize that in a small way. I had a graphic that I created for a previous Twitter Chat, so I opened it back up, changed the top, and posted it with two small sentences and hash tagged it with #NationalTeachersDay. I tagged my usual tribe in the graphic so they would re-tweet it for me; they’re awesome like that. After that, I went about my day.…See More
