Mobile Device Use

Posted on February 11, 2013 at 1:51am 0 Comments

I use my phone to receive emails that I subscribe to which I learn from on a daily basis.  Some of these include:  Teach Preschool, TeachersPayTeachers, ASCD SmartBrief, ReadWorks, and my Twitter account is also linked to my email for updates.  These include resources and information I can use in the classroom.   

Synchronous and Asynchronous Communication Tools

Posted on February 11, 2013 at 1:40am 0 Comments

The synchronous tool I choose to set up was Skype.  I used Skype for the very first time today.  I actually communicated with my Grandmother who lives in Frederick, Maryland.  I was amazed at how easy utilizing Skype was.  Now I am very excited about using Skype for personal and professional means!!  My Skype name is lorienwatson5. The asynchronous tool I set up today was voicethread.  I researched this tool, and found it to be very useful for the classroom.  I commented on a segment about…

What is a mashup?

Posted on February 3, 2013 at 10:34pm 0 Comments

I am currently taking a technology class, and have just joined the PLN.  I am constantly learning new tech lingo, and now am familiar with what a mashup entails.  A combination of video, audio, or pictures makes for a very creative and innovative type of project.  It's great how it is directly tied to Blooms!  The projects can range from the simplest forms of Blooms all the way to the most challenging.

I commented on this post, and then deleted it on accident.  Let's just say I am learning!  I thought there was some very innovative ideas here.  Lore is a social network much like Facebook, but an environment set up where students can feel comfortable and be in a professional atmosphere to interact with other students and teachers.  LessonCast is another technology resource here recommended where teachers can share their knowledge with each other.  I am looking forward to checking it out.  I…

Keys to Change Leadership

Leading change to help school practitioners embrace not only technology in teaching but in assessment, grading, and outcomes can be a challenge. Systemic, meaningful change from an environment of rote learning to the collaborative nature in a 1:1 environment can be met with resistance.

I thought I'd eventually be out of a job.

I ask a student to attach a file to an email and I get a blank stare.I tell the class to open a new tab so they have two websites open at the same time and I have to show them how to do that a few times.I assume that since they are growing up with technology they naturally know how to use it, but I am shown on a daily basis that this is not the case. They know how to get to their game website and play till their eyeballs fall out, but when I ask them to find a file they created yesterday, they…See More
