Google Apps

During this unit I spent a significant amount of time using Google Apps, and I can easily say that I have learned quite a bit from the experience.  I did come to realize that there are many practical uses for my classroom that I can begin to implement immediately, as well as in my personal life if I so wished.  Any and all knowledge I can gain from learning about technology is valuable to me and this unit was especially useful.  The amount of freedom and self reliance I was able to…

Experiencing Free/Open Source Courses

The open course I found and chose to start was/is called “Digital History” through a partnership between the University of Houston and other supportive organizations.  It is a comprehensive course that covers the history of the United States beginning from the American Revolution to present day.  The amount of sources, resources, and perspectives offered are truly impressive.  The course is divided into ten separate and distinct sections and it allows the learner to choose what order…

Blogging about Bloom and Marzano

Bloom’s taxonomy and Marzano’s Strategies are two concepts that I have been exposed to since very early on in my education classes almost eight years ago.  At first they seemed very abstract and empty ideas to me for the simple reason I didn’t have any tools in my tool box, meaning I didn’t have any of my own lessons to mold and modify using these ideas.  However, now that I am becoming a…
