I have learned so much about technology in such a short time. I am not technologically inclined to say the least. I got behind in this class in the first week because I failed to scroll down.....that's when you know your skills are lacking! I have already learned a number of things that I can and will use moving forward in my career. The Facebook Fan page allowed me to create a page I can direct my students to. I have not directed them there yet, but I will be updating it for use beginning in September of this year. They say you have to go where the people are and having just created my own Facebook for the first time I was amazed at the number of friend requests I received in a matter of minutes! It is obvious Facebook is where the people are, especially our students. My personal web page will allow me to track my achievements and accomplishments as I go forward in my career. I see it as a virtual means of promoting myself should the need arise for new employment or perhaps a part-time teaching or coaching position in addition to my current one. I also see podcasting as way of communicating with students. I am looking into ways of implementing them into my curriculum. I also envision it being used with a substitute. I could record a message to my students that might include reminders on behavior or perhaps even a prompt for a written entry in their portfolio. This will be explored and most definitely implemented in the future. Finally, PLN allowed me to create a site where I can get updates from my most frequently visited sites all in one location. It has drastically reduced the amount of time I am surfing the web! I am so excited about all that I have learned in such a short period of time!
