I have always been a fan of technology but it wasn't until recently that I really started using it as a tool in my classroom. Sure, at school I was one of the first teachers to really get into using the SmartBoard, I was excited to start up a website for the Math Department, and I've been using Delicious--- but there are so many more resources out there. I've started a blog (http://technovore.edublogs.org) as a way of organizing what I've found, as well as how I'm using it, and I've signed up for an account on Classroom 2.0 so that I can network with others. The biggest frustration that I've experienced so far is that there is so much information out there and so little time!!! If you take a look at my blog I've got two major goals for this year: One is to integrate more projects into my classes in the form of podcasting and blogging. The second is to get other teachers at my school interested and excited about using technology in the classroom. Right now I am working on my 3rd CST project--- it's an introduction to Web2.0 with a focus on blogging. I've got the basic framework done and I am now looking to put together links to schools/teachers who blog with an emphasis on professional development and ways that teachers incorporate blogging in the classroom. When I finish the presentation I will upload it on my blog so look for it late this week! I would love to hear how other teachers are using blogging in the classroom. I teach high school math, but I am also working with teachers of other subject areas so all are welcome to respond! Thanks in advance for any help or advice you can give me!!
