Check this out, I’m getting the hang of blogging! You would think that as a recent college graduate my technology skills would be stellar, however I must admit that this is my first blogging experience. I can tell that one of my many challenges this year will be keeping up with the very tech savvy Mrs. Cornwell! With that being said, what an amazing opportunity I have been given to learn a thing or two (or a hundred) from an amazing teacher and respected colleague. When it comes to technology, it I believe that it is my job as a teacher to learn everything I can, and be familiar with the latest and greatest our world has to offer. An increasing amount of students consider themselves digital learners and as a teacher it is of the utmost importance to me to appeal to all of my students’ unique learning styles. Kids today use, understand, and love technology and what better way to reach them in school than to incorporate something they enjoy?!
I consider myself pretty comfortable with technology. I am young enough to have grown up with computers in school and in the home, however I still feel I have a lot to learn and my skills could definitely use some tweaking. It is my personal goal this year to learn as much as I can about technology through the multitude of resources I have available to me. In addition, I hope to incorporate these skills into my teaching as much as possible. Students–I’m expecting you to hold me accountable for this 🙂
Thank you Mrs. Cornwell, and 1st, 2nd, and 3rd hour for inviting my 4th and 6th hour to join you on your blog. This is a wonderful opportunity for our classes to connect, and I look forward to updating frequently.
