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

Visit to Linden Elementary today
I visited Linden Elementary's handheld class for an hour this morning with my daughter. I showed the teacher the content that I'm building that is based on released items from from the MEAP, and she really liked it. As I complete each section (Math, Social Studies, Science, etc) I'll post it to this blog.
