Google Apps Blog

When I first saw the assignment on Google Apps training, I didn’t realize how little I actually knew about Google.  There are so many different ways to incorporate Google into a classroom.  I also didn’t realize that there was a whole section on Apps for Education and how certain apps could be used.  For example, I use Google Calendar for my everyday personal calendars, however, I do not use it for school.  I think that if I used it for school as well, it would keep me that much more…

Experiencing Free/Open Source Courses

The course that I chose to take was on geology.  It is a self-paced, interactive course with a lot of great information about the different types of rocks. This is a good course for students that need a visual learning experience.  There are videos, interactive activities, and actual pictures of the different types of rocks: sedimentary, igneous, and metamorphic. It is not only informational, but it is also extremely kid-friendly.  There are objectives, instructions for use, and ideas for…

Marzano & Bloom

When I started on my teaching journey almost ten years ago in college, we did a lot of work with Bloom’s Taxonomy.  There was a lot of focus on using the levels of thinking skills in lesson planning and developing activities.  The first school I starting teaching at, the main focus of the school was using the Bloom’s verb in our objectives.   Bloom’s has been the core of my teaching for the majority of my career so far.  Not until recently has Marzano become a forerunner in my teaching…

Experiencing Free/Open Source Courses

This self-paced course is a good introduction to Spanish for those who have never studied it before, or a good supplemental program for students who may be struggling in their school Spanish class, or a good refresher course for people who would like to brush up on Spanish after years of not having studied it.  While there are many aspects of learning a language, this course focuses almost exclusively on Spanish grammar.  The course materials and videos had to be accessed using iTunes…

Embedding ICT in teaching and learning

I teach English to grade six in a well recognized institute of Pakistan. I also work in an administrative capacity as an SM and have to coordinate with the teachers of middle school. Recently I joined a professional course that demanded me to embed ICT in my teaching and learning. I learnt a lot. Side by side I faced many barriers like shortage of resources, incompetency and reluctance of teachers, power out and many more coming in the way of this whole process. I want to know what…

Google Apps

Google Apps would help me be a more efficient educator in a few ways.  One it would help me with organization with the integration of Google calendars.  I find myself carrying around 2 or 3 different day planners each school year because I am writing information everywhere.  The calendar app will allow me to just carry around my laptop or phone and keep track of everything going on in and out of the classroom.  Another way the apps would help is through the Google site tool.  I have wanted…

Virtual Reality

After researching the opposing view, my thoughts have not changed.  I still see benefits to using virtual reality in the classroom.  I do agree however, that cost is the major barrier in having successful virtual reality options in the classrooms.  Virtual worlds offer some advantages but not more.  I love the idea of students being able to use their technology skills and apply them in the classroom as an extension or additional support.  I feel classroom must keep some traditional aspects…

Just attended a summer geographic seminar on oil, water, and people in ND.  I learned a lot about fracking.  The 2 days we spent on oil and fracking made me not totally sure whether it is good or not.  Of course, going into it, I thought I knew that fracking caused fire water, sink holes, and earthquakes.  Now I am not sure as wells for water are 1800 feet above the fracking and wells have naturally occurring methane, earthquakes happen 498 miles below fracking, and the shale is left…

Blog *1 "hispana con mentes inteligentes"

en este artículo están hablando de cómo los hispanos simplemente no puedo encontrar una cura para los problemas de salud mental. En la década de 1980 un químico argentino probó suerte en una cura o al menos un catalizador para los problemas de salud mental. En lo que fue un éxito y recibió el premio noble por ello. De vuelta en el día, no hubo casos graves de problemas de salud mental en una gran cantidad de hombres hispanos, también en los hombres no hispanos, pero fue un problema…

View on Virtual Reality

When I first started to research the topic of virtual reality in education, my position was that I was against it. To be quite honest, I didn’t know enough about the topic and I thought of the movies such as The Matrix and Tron. It all seemed entirely too futuristic for education. I then remembered when I first saw a demo of the SmartBoard in 2005, I didn’t think that type of device would last. I thought that was also too futuristic and it would never be used in an educational…

Online Tools That Make a College Student’s Life Easier

Nowadays it is difficult to imagine a student who goes through their college without a smartphone, tablet, or at least a computer. Young people practically spend their days with modern technology, but not all of them have realized that their devices can save instead of waste time.

If you try to implement these educational tools in your studying activities, you will not only improve the quality of your learning methods, but will also go through college…

Social Networking and Digital Citizenship

Doing this weeks activity I learned a couple of new things.  First, the importance of having a digital citizenship policy for my classroom, second, how I can utilize social networks in the classroom.  Creating the digital citizenship policy was important because I had to thoughtfully think of what was most important for students.  There were many points that could be made for each element, but picking the most effective and kid-friendly took some thought.  The work around social networks…

Social Networking and Digital Citizenship

This week, learning about social networking and digital citizenship was extremely beneficial for me. I have learned a lot that I didn’t really know about and was not previously aware of.  I never really sat down and thought about what social networking meant and which type of websites this included. I knew that Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, and those types of websites were considered social networks, however, I never thought of Mom Café, Pinterest, and Tumblr as social networks. I also didn’t…
