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

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.

Stop 20th Century Thinking

In the 21st Century our approach to education can and should be very different from previous centuries. The basic skills we teach are pretty much the same, but the tools we have to use require a different approach, as well as additional and very different literacies from centuries past. Information once difficult to find, maintain, and disseminate is now found by a voice command to a mobile device. The model of the teacher as the content expert standing in the front of the room, lecturing to…See More
