Tool #11

My favorite tools include a blog, interactive journaling, and varied assessments through the use of technology.  I'm excited to incorporate technology as a means of assessment.  I plan to have students create online presentations, blogs, and websites as their finished product for an assignment.

The 11 Tools has introduced me to a wide variety of technology that I can use in the classroom.  This has given me the added support I needed to actually begin using technology in the classroom.  I am always looking for ways to improve the learning environment for my students and this has been very helpful in doing so. 

I am surprised about how much I learned from completing the 11 Tools.  The "doing" part really made the difference.  Because I was able to actively explore and use the different tools, I feel more knowledgeable and equipped to use them in the classroom.

  1. I have really enjoyed reading your posts Amy! I agree with you that the "doing" part of 11 Tools is important. . .we could extend that thinking to other learning experiences as well.
