Research 2.0 = Searching + Evaluating + Annotating + Sharing + Collaborating

...too much of a good thing?

Throughout my Graduate studies, my colleagues and I have been exposed to a myriad of new technologies which can be used in both our professional and personal lives.  We are taught how to implement these technologies in the classroom in order to foster student growth and development.  When deployed correctly, integrating technology into the classroom can be extremely successful.  Students are constantly using technology outside of school as well.  However, I do wonder when people 'unplug'…

Technology and Relationships as a Teacher

I embrace technology. It is one of the best friends we have in education today. However, the benefits of technology will not begin to reach their greatest potential until we get to know the personalities of every student and build trusting relationships with them. There is no substitute for RELATIONSHIPS. The financial cost is low; the emotional cost is high but being successful, as a teacher demands it!
