Tool 11 of 11

One of my favorite tools I will be using with my students is the Interactive Multigenre Text Analysis Chart. The students can use it when analyzing text and I am able to add extra rows and columns and type in any question I would like for the students. Once the students complete the chart it is able to be printed out.

Learning in my class will be taking place by using the technology we already use with the Macs and adding other technology with the iPads and the apps on the iPad. To accommodate the 21st Century learner, I will need to stay updated on technology and be more aware than the 21st Century learner.

There were no unexpected outcomes surprised me, but I was exposed to more interactive sites and apps for the iPad I will be able to use in the class I was not familiar with before.

Tool 10 of 11

Three things I want students to understand are:
 1. To be aware that information used for research off the internet may not be totally accurate and other means of research are important as well
 2. Just because you put something on Facebook or text something to a friend does not mean the message is private. It can and will be found.
 3. Be aware of the safety issues online.

I like Common Sense Media because it has various videos for parent and student education. These videos can be used at the beginning of the year before we start working on projects and throughout the year as needed.
