Back in the Classroom

After working for five years as a district-level technology facilitator, I am now returning to the classroom. It's my goal to make my 5th grade class a model for how technology can be powerfully integrated into instruction and learning. Join my students and me on the journey! It's sure to be bumpy, but exciting...

August is Just About Here

Tomorrow brings a new role for me - 5th grade teacher. While I'm sure to miss the daily collaboration opportunities with incredible teachers in Schaumburg 54, I'm trading it for something else that I value - relationships with kids! Besides, teaching in a classroom with a 1-0n-1 laptop program could never be dull, at least for a self-proclaimed geek like myself.

I've promised to set aside the month of August for research into content I'll be covering. Of course I'll be keeping my personal notes on wikis. When I get a moment, I also want to check int0 Backpack as a place to store resources. I need to check to see if it's blocked in district before I invest time. For the most part, my district is not terribly restrictive, but I recently discovered I can't access bookmarks stored in my Furl account at school. I'm trying to find out if I can get Furl opened...time will tell.
