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.

Fitaly Letris and Weekly Spelling Words

Over the past week my second grader has gotten serious about learning graffiti. She's pretty good with Giraffe, and now I'm inputing her spelling words in Fitaly Letris and she's practicing them that way.

Here's a couple of other ideas I have:

I'll input a bunch of time problems (1:30, 2:35, 3:45, etc)into MagicChooser and Rachel will draw the clock faces on another handheld using a drawing application(I think this would really be fun with a pair of students).

This type of activity could also be done with prefixes, suffixes, addition, multiplication, and subtraction problems.

Hey, you have a great blog here! I'm definitely going to bookmark you.
