A great WordPress.com site

2nd post of the week.

So, I haven’t been very quick to get my second post up this week but here it is…I was thinking about the subject “teaching with technology”. It’s the class I’m currently in, and I have to say, I have learned so much more than I expected to. I think it’s one of those things where you don’t know how much you don’t know until somebody shows you.

I know I have recommended a few ways to incorporate technology into the classroom…but it just hit me, why not this?! Every one of us has been a student at one point or another and we all have had writing assignments, article reviews, or even journal entries. Why not use this? The teacher can subscribe to all the students accounts, can read, comment, and see when it was posted. It can basically be used as a “Blackboard or D2L” website if one isn’t already being used in your school. In fact, all these posts I have been posting are directly related to education because I am using this for exactly what I am recommending. My professor is monitoring these and using them as assignments. It really is a great idea! See, even while giving us assignments he is using strategies in order to use technology in the classroom! I don’t know why this has hit me sooner than this, but this is a great way for students to open up and hopefully even share useful topics with others online rather than just social, and meaningless posts which clutter the internet!

I hope this has set a spark in any of my fellow teachers!
