Wow! I can’t believe it’s over. I learned so much this summer. I enjoyed testing new apps for classroom use, learning to embed video, starting to blog, and learning how to connect with millions of teachers all over the US and the world. I will definitely continue to read weekly. I have enjoyed the blog posts and the articles. Sometimes teaching is a lonely profession as we are in a classroom alone for many hours of the day. Yes, the students are there, but no other adults. This class has shown me that other educators are just a click away ready to share and interact with me. We should all be using wikis!! They are great especially for upper grades!! I am learning that Twitter is much more useful than following celebrities. I am also going to teach my students to be good digital citizens. They may know more about technology than I do but it is my job to make sure they are safe, and knowledgeable when using all forms of technology. I will have my students use Common Core pictures in our class. I will no longer promote “stealing” from Google images. ( I did not even know It was stealing!!” We have completed week one at school. I tweeted a picture of my class eating dirt cups we did as part of a Judy Blume lesson. Baby steps but here we go!
