I want to be a Social Studies Teachers

Ever since I was a kid in Middle School I have wanted to be a social studies teacher. One of my teachers said that I would make a great teacher ever since then i have been hooked. I have also had great teachers that have further inspired me to become a teacher. Teachers that have brought social. studies alive and have gained the respect of the students of their class. After graduating High school I have gained more skills that will help me even more in my class room.

Tag Galaxy

cross posted on my personal blog Pink Stone Days

Alan Levine posted a Tag Galaxy picture collage about China on his blog which motivated me to check out the new-to-me web 2.0 app. You type in a tag and Tag Galaxy creates a visual, moving, 3-D galaxy of options for you to browse. Click on a planet in the galaxy (labeled with a category) to view that group of images. I almost didn't get to… Continue

Creating WebQuests

As part of my eMINTS training, I have had the opportunity to learn more about and begin using WebQuests with my students. I am amazed at the opportunities that can be created when we as teachers stretch beyond the usual pedagogy. I look forward to continuing this kind of activity with my students.

Summer is a Time for New Ideas

Although many of us enjoy taking time to relax and recharge, this is also a good time to reconnect with old Classroom 2.0 friends and to make new ones. This is when I have the space to think about ways to change/update curriculum in meaningful ways for my 3rd graders.

This summer I have also been given a grant for a school-wide learning experience with food. This project will have lessons, speakers, field trips, curricular tie-ins, and hands on experiences. It will encompass… Continue

Web 2.0

I spent this last year exploring the many possibilities of Web 2.0 in the classroom. I am still learning and the more I have learned the less I feel like I know. The idea of the Power of the Crowd is a very new concept for our school district so trying to sell that idea will be very challenging. We have begun in small ways and hope to expand our efforts. I am still trying to figure out which sites work the best for student use, the teachers who are beginning to explore in that area are still… Continue

Is this the start of something new

Well - I am just having to retype everything because I lost my original version so - here we go.....

Is it me? What are all these nings, blogs, pod-casts etc. I thought I was computer literate but I find I am having to drag myself into the 21st century in order to keep up with the young people I work with. Being the manager of a young people education service, I am supposed to be at the forefront of technology - unfortunately, being of the older generation has its own limitations. I… Continue

online education in a short space of time

I've been teaching an online course for my graduate school alma mater for the past several semesters. So far, each semester has been 14 weeks long, with four of the sessions being face-to-face and the other 10 sessions being conducted through a course homepage provided by the school. I've been trying to brainstorm ways to keep the class on-track for covering all the material required, but making the best use of the online format.

Now I'm teaching a shorter summer version of the… Continue

Social Networks in low-income communities as a vehicle for skill development that creates transferable proficiency for the classroom…

Developing curricula that reflects the usage of social networks for building exposure, image and contribute to performance will set the stage for life-long learning. Additionally, for those that have had no contact with computers, developing content and effective on-line navigation will be the result on working with social networks as a vehicle for skills development. I’m thinking the basic curriculum would be as follows: MS Word, MS Excel, MS PowerPoint, MS Access, MS FrontPage, Introduction… Continue
