Technology in my future

When I first graduated from Fresno State and then into the credential program, I never whould have thought about using technology in my classroom, except for my ipod to play music. But since reading these articles, and doing all of these assignments, i am amazed at the possibilities. I especially like google docs, this is really cool to be able to share LP's without having to attach it to an e-mail. I also like the idea of weblogs; if my district ever becomes techno efficent, I would love to include this feature into my curriculum. I also think Podcast are a great way to communicate with students and their family if for some reason a parent meeting can not happen, or a student misses school. I have some parents who e-mail me wanting to know what is going on with their children. I think it would be easier for the parent to access what I might have said that day or look at what I am doing in my class. I am starting to get the hang of this technology stuff...

Ok, so I searched the Web 2.0 site, and to be honest i did not think I would find anything interesting. But to my suprise I spend almost an hour there. I found a cool music library site (I actually set up my account/ profile) and will be a music library there to where I can access it for personal use, but most importantly I can build a music library for my classes. For example, I can use it in the weight room when we are doing a circuit training, I can use it when we are doing a line dancing, or other fitness activites we might be doing. I also found the library Revolution Health, when exploring this site, I found stuff that I could have my students research when we talk about obesity, diabetes, just to name a few. I am actually excited to plan my lessons for next year!!

Google Docs

I could totally use this to share LPs with other PE teachers!!! I am loving this new assignment!!

I had a professor at Fresno State who intorduced me to Podcasts, I actually listened to some really intresting things. However, I would have never thought about an iPod or podcasts if had not been for Dr. Chadwick!! But, I do think they are a great idea to listen to lectures, because I know how hard it was for me sometimes when my son was sick and i missed out on lecture, when you miss one day, you miss alot.

Weblogging can be fun, but yet very confusing.

Not so hard

I seriously thought that creating a blog would be challenging for me, but not so hard... I am impressed with myself!!
