Blog Post #10

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.

  1. Hey Meagan,

    This is a good summary of her videos, but it's not very specific. I wish you had been more specific on which examples you really liked. I did notice in your third sentence that you are talking about Ms. Cassidy using technology. Ms. Cassidy is one of those teachers that incorporates it into her classroom, but in that specific sentence, your subject-verb agreement isn't correct. I did think that it was interesting that she was using Nintendo DS's in her class. In the same sentence, you have two thoughts in the same sentence. They need to either be split by a semicolon or a period. I think that the PLN's will be very helpful in the future. Also, remember to insert a picture!

    Good job!
