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.

Home from Vacation

My family and I just returned home from a 12 day vacation in Walt Disney World. On our way home from Detroit Metro Airport we detoured (to Cleveland!) and added a 10 week old collie puppy, named Kirby, to our family.

Despite some blisters on our toes, we had a fantastic time. The girls really loved their first trip to WDW and they love their puppy. Prior to the trip, My wife signed on to a couple of great sites that really helped up deal with with pre-planning and the crowds which really made our trip more enjoyable. For anyone planning to go I really recommend allearsnet and Tour Guide Mike. Tour Guide Mike gives excellent advice for dealing with the crowds and utilizing the Disney Fast Pass system; the site is really worth the $20.00 cost.

We decided to go laptop free on this trip so I have some catching up to do with emails and so forth.

Damn, I never knew there were s many cards apart from citi and capital one. Card Gallery has the biggest selection of cards.
