I am proud to say that I am your child's Technology Teacher this year! We have gotten off to a fast start this year but the students have already learned so much in a short amount of time! Right now, the 4th Graders are learning how to type properly (home row, middle row, upper row) and it is a blast to see them transitioning from "chicken typing" to typing the correct way! The 1st and 2nd graders are currently about the different parts of the computer by viewing interactive videos from learning.com (I encourage them to practice at home.) My 3rd and 5th graders are currently laying the foundation for learning how to type documents. There is something new always going on in the Computer Lab and I really enjoy seeing a kid when he or she catches the "spark" of how awesome technology can be!

Wow, this summer has really flown by fast! Words cannot describe how excited I am about starting a new year at a new school! During the summer, I went to some pretty awesome trainings about how to integrate technology into the classroom. I cannot wait to share those ideas with the students! We are going to start something new this year called "Paper Slide Videos" in which each student will draw a picture about a given theme in technology. We will then run each picture in front of a video camera and make a movie out of it. I cannot wait to share those with you!
Looking forward to a great year!
Wow! The year is almost up! Time sure does fly! Classes have been going really great lately! I went to a Technology Conference a couple of months ago and have so many "tools" that I enjoy using in the classroom! There is no greater feeling then when a student is like "Ohh, THAT'S how you do that!"
Well, we have completed about a month of school and the Technology Class at SE is off to a great start! Students are excited to come to class and are actively participating in lessons! It is exciting to see how students absorb technology and how many of them just have a natural enjoyment for computers in general.
I have been in computer training for the past few days now, and I am absolutely enjoying it!
There are so many tools and resources that are going to be available this year to help students learn as well as to get teachers familiar with "technology!" I look forward to working with a great team this year!! More blogs to come soon!!
