We're on the Tech Train and it's moving forwards
We then got onto blogging as a form of professional reflection and looked at how to set up a blog. Everyone signed up for a Blogger account.
Over the holidays when teachers have a bit of time to relax and play with both Blogger and Twitter I'm hoping that they will come to see how useful both these tools are. When we are back at school again I want to show them how they can use both these tools to connect with other educators worldwide and how this can lead to their students collaborating and creating with students around the globe.
I had hoped to get onto Google Reader today, but unfortunately the time went too fast. I realise it's better to stick to just one or two things and do them really well, rather than inundate our teachers with many new things that they might find overwhelming.
For future sessions I also want to show them some Web 2.0 tools that they can use with their students. Some of my favourites include Bitstrips, Xtranormal, Prezi, VoiceThread and Glogster. I can also see possibilities with Zimmertwins.
I'm excited to be able to do these sessions and after the holidays I'll be raring to go with the next one!
