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.

Here Is one of several applications I designed for my EDU 421 "Reading In Then Content Area" class. This one is called Jumbler, and it is designed to help students retain vocabulary. A lot of research I'm reading indicates that children need to be exposed to words 6+ times before they can retain them and transfer them into their own thinking and writing. I want students to create their own Jumble records and share them with their peers. The students would then would have the opportunity to solve their own Jumbles and those of their peers.

I'm also trying to create warmer interfaces, and I'll be adding color to my applications over the next few months.

Feel free to ask any questions about the application
