Blog Assignment #13
I enjoyed this assignment because I had time to "look and learn." I visited an educational site created by Jose Picardo. I had never visited a site like it before. Right away my mind was gleaning ideas to use in the classroom. One idea I discovered was putting a quiz with a blog post. I read something and had an idea for using video to teach writing dialogue. I love when my head reels with ideas.
Jose Picardo also shared 10 tips for using technology in the classroom. He gave me some ideas for things I want to explore. I would like to play with game makers. I am very open to using music and social networking in the classroom. I had never heard of animoto. So many new possibilities. My favorite quote from Mr. Picardo: "Only use media when it helps you achieve your lesson objectives." We must always guide the tool to target the goal.
