I’m glad you’re here! The purpose of this blog is to introduce you to different Web 2.0 tools and offer ideas for how the tools can be used in instruction. I was inspired to start this blog by a librarian in Connecticut who did a similar blog for her teachers – and who received her inspiration from a public library in North Carolina. You have to love professional sharing!
So, how will this work? Every Wednesday, I will post 1-2 new things for you to explore. The posts will include short videos, links to examples, and/or tutorials. You can participate by learning about the tools and then commenting on the blog to ask questions, reflect on what you’ve learned, etc.
Now, for the fun part…!
This series will run for 13 weeks, May 2nd through July 25th. That means that you will be introduced to 13 – 20 instructional technology tools that you can use in your classroom next year! During the 13 weeks, teachers who participate by commenting on at least seven (7) of the weekly blog posts will be entered to win a Kindle Fire that will be given away at Institute Day on Wednesday, August 1st!
I hope you enjoy the next few weeks, and that you learn something that you can take back to your classroom for the next school year! And, don’t forget to comment on at least seven (7) different blog posts to be entered for your chance to win the Kindle Fire on Institute Day! Happy Learning!
