Exploring the Web 2.0 award lists was exciting. I really can utilize all the new technology skills that I now posses in my classroom. Here is a example: I was looking at the website ifit.com when completing the other assignment and had a great idea. How about if I gave the students a assignment to log their weight and information at the beginning of the year and had them keep track of their progress throughout the year. I could also incorporate journal entries as they analyze their personal progress on a monthly basis and have them create goals in terms of weight loss and personal fitness. WOW! I am getting excited just thinking about the possibilities.
Another great idea I had was using a official school blog to keep the parents updated about what we are doing in class and the progress of the students in general. I know some parents would really love that idea. It would make the parent and teacher relationship so much stronger. Technology will make my class much more efficient and effective. Mahalo
