Summary of Learning

I cannot believe this class has already come to a close. It has been such a great experience and I have learned so much. Each debate challenged me to think about the way I use technology in my classroom. Daina guided me through the process of creating my blog and creating videos for our debate …

ED. Tech Debate #7

Our final debate argued that educators have a responsibility to use tech and social media to promote social justice. It was one for the books.

Ed Tech Debate #6

I did not know what to expect from this debate. The topic was openness and sharing in schools is unfair to our kids. I came into this debate not really sure how I felt. Both teams did a fantastic job of arguing their sides and brought some really good points to the table. I left …

ED. Tech Debate #5

A Day in the Life…

I have always thought of myself as someone that did not struggle with technology. After taking a year off during my maternity leave I came back to school and could not believe how much had changed. All of a sudden google docs, google classroom and new websites and programs were common language at our staff …
