My goal is to learn about how to integrate technology into my daily life and also into my classrooms. I would like to learn more about web 2.0 tools, communication outlets, and other resources that I may not be aware of yet. I am hoping to utilize these new tools and resources to expand my personal experiences and help simplify my life.
I also hope to use these tools and resources within my classroom. I am currently a high school science teacher and I have used tools such as: wikis, moodle, voicethread, glogster, smartboard, smart response, and notebook. I actually took the time last year to research and setup my own interactive whiteboard using a nintendo wiimote and an infrared pen (wiimote interactive whiteboard). I am excited to learn about new tools and methods to increase student interaction and productivity through the use of technology.
