"Thanks Kelly!  I like that they are teaching each other as well.  Also, they are not limited in the activity by what they don't know because they are writing back in their first language!  So even children who have limitations…"

Global Awareness Unit

The global awareness lesson I chose involved using e-pal to communicate with students in China.  Because students are already participating in the Chinese immersion program, this was a tie in to lessons already happening.  There is a classroom in China learning English.  Our classroom is in America learning Chinese.  Because of this, both classrooms can benefit while enhancing their direct knowledge of each other's culture through their discussions.  Our classroom will email/respond weekly in…See More

Ada Todd replied to Diana North's discussion One to One Initiative in the group EDT6020

Ada Todd replied to Diana North's discussion One to One Initiative in the group EDT6020
"It was interesting to read your post, and you had so many wonderful resources. It is also extremely important that technology is provided to those who do not have their own. I was thinking about advertisements from various universities. They…"

Ada Todd replied to Diana North's discussion One to One Initiative in the group EDT6020
"I agree! It is so important that our students have the ability to use all technology and to use it for more than facebooking and texting. But buget constraints are a real issue. This article,…"

Ada Todd replied to Diana North's discussion One to One Initiative in the group EDT6020
"I am not currently in a school, but in thinking about K-12, I believe it would be possible for laptops.  With awesome funding, it would be possible with iPads as well, but that depends on the technology already utilized in the room.  Also,…"

Ada Todd replied to Kayla Towers's discussion Wordle
"There are many ways to use Wordle in the classroom!  I have used it to generate a word cloud showing what a topic was about and it can be used for vocabulary word generation.  This website…"

Ada Todd replied to rodo montes's discussion Kindles and iPads VS Books
"I do believe that kindles or ipads or another device that does the same will replace textbooks.  By the time a textbook is proofed, printed, and purchased it is already out of date.  A book sent digitally however would be more recent,…"
