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.

GoKnow's PiCoMap

PiCoMap is a fantastic piece of software. It can act as a stand alone graphic organizer or as the central organizing hub of a hypermedia presentation. Every node created in a PiCo has the ability to hyperlink to files created in the other 6 GoKnow presentation applications. These other applications, Cells, FlingIt, FreeWrite, iKWl, Sketchy, and ViewPoint allow students to produce multimedia presentations with graphs, downloaded web pages, written reports, KWL charts, animations, and slide shows. GoKnow has produced a series of short videos that highlight the capabilities of their products.

When I'm a teacher, and if I have software funds in my budget, the GoKnow yearly subscription will be among the first items purchased
