This semester has been full of its ups and downs. I would like to concentrate on the ups in this post. I have learned about so many fantastic tools that I can use everyday in and out of my classroom that are free! One of my favorite things that I have learned about this semester is Aviary. It is an image editing program that does everything from screen capturing to adding really cool details to photos. I love it! You can check it out by clicking here. Another great tool that has been implemented in this course is blogging! We used blogger to set up personal blogs to keep track of our assignments. i can definitely see me using a blog in my classroom, to publish my students work and help keep the parents informed about what is going on in the classroom. My favorite assignment for this class was comments4kids. We commented on students blogs from around the world. I had so much fun with this! There are so many resources we learned about that will continue to help me, such as ALEX and ACCESS, Google Documents, Skype, Delicious, and iTunes. I will continue to further my literacy in technology because that is the future.
