Enter D'Apps I'm using this site to gain competence with technologies that I intend to utilize in the classroom. My college is doing a pretty good job teaching traditional methods, however, I only have one instructional media class and I believe that 21st century students should learn with 21st century technology. When I begin my teaching career, I want to integrate technology starting on the first day, and the only way I'll be able to do that is to start practicing now. I'll use blogs in the classroom for communicating with parents and daily roving reporting by students. Students will also have the option to write on their own blog. Over the next couple of years I'll model how I'll use use blogging in the classroom on this site. Please check out my other sites concerning Handhelds and Podcasting.

Daily Record

I haven't had time to post over the last few days, although I managed to add some links in other areas of this blog. I'm really trying to get into the habit of blogging everyday, which should help me use blogs when I have a classroom.

I have two exams tomorrow and a project due on Thursday. The project, Ancient Egyptians in the Afterworld (or something like that), may involve an animation and I plan on attaching a sound file to it. Hopefully, I'll have the oppportunity to interview Mrs. Juhl about her first year using handhelds before the end of the month and create an actual podcast.

Looks like I have a pair of long nights ahead, and I'm out of coffee.
