I am already using iMovie, iTunes, flipcam, and iPods with the peercasting that we are doing. I have a Promethean ActivBoard that I love. I have ActivExpression voters. I use Snopes almost everyday.
In this class, I have learned about MANY websites that I have already started using and have passed on to my colleagues. I love Diigo because we can share these things with each other in one spot. I love technology and I think it is very fun to bring these things to the other teachers in my building. Today, the language arts teachers were using things they made on Wordle to have their students color in the verbs blue and the nouns red. This great to a discussion about some words being both a noun and a verb. It’s so fun when the kids notice something like that. Yesterday, during the after school program, I allowed the students to use their cell phone calculators. They thought that was very cool.
Glogster is a neat tool. I will be sharing that one with my colleagues. I love how Mendeley helps with referencing. I will definitely be using ScreenJelly to teach inservices. I could use Wallwisher in my Title I classroom, as well as Visuwords. I have already told others about the latter. I have already used Doodle to plan our yearly get-together with the female teachers. It was so easy to use and I got feedback right away. SO much faster than putting a sheet in the lounge.
This class was just a wealth of information to use and help my school enter into the 21st century.
