Technology. It isn't going away!
With the recent adoption of the new standards, students should be working with and understanding various forms of technology. In my class, students will be highly engaged in the curriculum because the technologies we use will keep them focused, learning, and actually enjoying the content. In addition to completing most assignments with our Haiku Learning Management System, students will be producing work with Google Docs, working with vocabulary using Quizlet, organizing their thoughts using Popplet and Bubbl.us, and lots of other creative and intuitive web-based tools.
If you have any concerns at all regarding internet safety or need some questions answered regarding technology, please do not hesitate to contact me! I currently serve as Warm Springs Middle School's webmaster and Instructional Technology Lead, and I also have a Master's Degree in Educational Technology. I am happy to assist in any way I can.
