Excel Cross Word Puzzle Nets 1, 2

For the cross word puzzle I used atomic learning. The cross word puzzle is a creative tool that teachers could use in the class room either created by them for the students to solve or for the students to create for themselves as a means to learn. The crossword puzzle would promote learning and creativity as well as keeping the students more engaged.

Google Docs Nets 1, 3

As a teacher, I am able to demonstrate fluency in technology systems when I use GoogleDocs. GoogleDocs is a tool that allows students and collegues to work collaboratively in a virtual environment. In an innovative way, professionals are able to exhibit their knowledge skills and work processes in a digital environment. Students can use GoogleDocs to share group projects, or just to collaborate with their teachers online.
GoogleDocs is an innovative, free, web based word processor, spread sheet, presentation and form application.

I used google docs for our group project on JCCS internet safety. 8 students in one group were able to collaborate on the same document at different times.

Charlotte's Web ED 422 Nets 1, 3

This was to me the most important and inspirational tool. In order to utilize the blog to its fullest potential, I had to learn about many more tools. This blog was created as a one stop shop for all the assignments and information pertaining to class ED #422. This blog is a resourceful communications tool that I will be able to look back at and use as I continue my studies. As I pursue my teaching credential, I will create a class blog in an effort to communicate relevant information to students and parents. The blog will contain all important information about the class as well as open up a forum for students and parents to communicate with me.
