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.

Freeware Choosing Application: MagicChooser

MagicChooser is a choosing application similar to Name Picker. In both applications you can create a list of pretty much anything and the application will randomly choose from that list.

Example Activity:
1. create a list of prefixes and suffixes in MagicChooser or Name Picker.
2. Using the palm to randomly pick a prefix or a suffix, the students will think of a
word that uses chosen prefix or suffix.
3. This could done in pairs, small groups, or large groups.
4. This could be done as a cooperative list building activity or an Around the World
style competition.
