As I look at all the things that I learned, I really liked wordle. I want to use the students names at the begining of the school year and have the students do a name search. I like the whole idea of connecting to another classroom, school, state, or the other side of the word via Skype. I think it would be meaningful for the students to be able to talk to students on the other side of the world or in another state when we study maps. I feel like I have learn and have much to explore with how to use some of the new technology (new to me) in my classroom. I have to say that I wasn't excited to work on 11 tools, but at the end I am glad I had to do it. I don't think I would have done all the playing around with my computer if I hadn't been required to do so.

Tool #11 Digital Citizenship

I see the light at the end of the tunnel! I think I can, I think I can, I think I can......
I still have much to learn, practice, understand as I continue to learn how to travel in cyberspace . I need to teach my student how to travel in cyberspace safely and responsibly. I must make sure that my students know that not everything they come across is appropriate for them or that it is even true. I know that not only do I need to show the students how to manuever but also allow them to do it themselves. I think that it is also important for the parents to be familiar with the technology that their child learning. Partnering with the parents can also make the child's journey safer.
