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.

my favorite free, easy-to-use web2.0 tools

There are some truely amazing, free web2.0 tools out there that I can use as soon as I start teaching (even if I'm subbing). All I'll need is an internet connection......

In addition to PBwiki and Google Docs and Spreadsheets (I know other w2 office tools are better but everyone's familiar with google) I really like:

bubbl.us which is an excellent mindmapping tool


myPodcast which offers space for your audio file and a blogger style webpage template in a couple of clicks of the mouse (Sweet for on the fly).

Here's an example of a mindmap I did with bubbl.us
