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.

5 Things Response

Tony Vincent has a fun request up on LearningInHand for fellow bloggers to post 5 little known facts about themselves on their websites. HMMMMM, I think this would be really fun to do in the classroom with kids and their handhelds at the beginning of the school year.

Anyways, here are mine.

1. My father was in the military and as I result I went to 13 different elementary schools in Virginia, Germany, and Michigan before I was in the 4th grade.

2. I was a blacksmith for 11 years, starting out at the ripe old age of 14.

3. After starting out studying architecture, I eventually wound up with a degree in Political Science

4. I've been a hopeless C-Span junkie for a very long time.

5. Like Tony, I have a fantastic 11 year old cat named Tucker. My wife and I got the name from the 90's song Tucker's Town by Hootie and the Blowfish.

I've never known another cat by the name Tucker. Usually it's dogs. Very cool!
