Yes! I have finished the 11 Tools activity!!! Go Me!!!
I think my favorite discovery was Stupeflix. and Comix.com. I think I will have the students make a comic strip about their first week of school. It would be a great way to discuss the rules for technology and a quick project to get the students engaged. What fun!
I have already started incorporating the 21st century classroom ideas into my daily lessons. Being a part of the T3 grant gave me a head start. The MacBooks were a great addition to my classroom. After completing the 11 tools, I discovered new resources that I can use in my class. I am definitely going to try Edmodo. My goal is to make technology flow naturally into my lessons. It will be a challenge, but what a joy when technology use in the classroom becomes second nature, and it is considered as necessary as a pencil. Technology shouldn't be something special and limited in numbers that we pull out for certain assignments, but just another tool we use to help students achieve their personal best.
