Ms. Cassidy uses technology excessively in her classroom. As a kindergarten teacher, she uses a lot of ideas to incorporate technology in her classroom. Ms. Cassidy, like most teachers in todays education atmosphere, are using technology and having their students come up with new ways on their own to use technology in their learning process. She began her technology trip ten years ago when she created her own web page. She created a class blog and started having her students comment on the blog. She expressed how her students enjoyed the blog and not having to "power down" their technology in the classroom. Ms. Cassidy uses an Nintendo DS in her classroom, I think it is amazing! I would have never thought of a DS as anything other than a video game, but she incorporates it into her classroom very well. In EDM 310, I can continue to build my Personal Learning Network and hopefully will be able to incorporate those unusual, yet useful technologies in my classroom.
