So I am now attempting my first lesson plan in GardenQuest. It seems to be very complicated at first, but I think I am now more confident navigating and editing the page. We will see the outcome . . YIKES! New things are some times intimidating.

No More Wiki Confusion!

I may not have mastered the wiki's but i do understand them more. I have created my own wiki about education as well as edited a wiki! My own wiki still needs to be edited but it will start coming along in no time at all! So the wiki I chose to edit was about Banana Bread . . this i can say I have a lot of knowledge about. I have failed and succeeded in making Banana Bread so I edited the page adding some quick tips for making your banana bread recipe more quick and easy! We will see if the edits go through! This has been great fun to learn about.

How does this apply to my teaching . . .

Dr. Davis asked this question in class today. I am seeing actual applications that i can use later after this class if finished. The blog is going to be a huge asset to me and my class. I will be able to post assignments and announcements and keep parents up to date. With the photostory I will be able to have my students create stories for a photo/science project. will be a great tool i can use this to create lessons and borrow lessons from other users. The UEN website is a great tool to stay up to date on the latest of education. The application is everywhere!! I am loving this class.

Electronic Portfolio

So today we learned about the different web sites we will use for our E-Portfolio. I am getting excited to create the E-portfolio. With everything that we created over the time of this class i am seeing how it will all come together and help me create my portfolio. This class has really opened my eyes about all that is available for teachers. Technology is such an asset to a teacher if they can utilize it properly.
