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.
