Something teachers need to consider before using social networking is the nine components of digital citizenship. These components were created to help protect students and create a learning environment for technology…Continue
Before this week, I have used Blooms significantly in my classroom. I made it a point to put it on my wall next to my standards in addition to putting one on the wall for my students to use. When I have students design their own assignments, I ask them to reflect on where they are in the unit (or how much content have we covered and is the information they are using in their project new or old content) and challenge them to lift their assignment to the next levels. I feel that using Blooms…Continue
