Tool # 11

In addition to gloster, I like TenMarks, google apps, dropbox, Web 2, GoAnimate.

Gloster is my favorite tool for my special ed. students.  The students will tell a story by creating a poster on their gloster account, and uploading images, photos, clips, pictures, texts, etc. that convey meaning to the reader.

This training has improved my use of technology, and will definitely help students take control of their learning,  I plan to frequently use these tools, and subsequently transform my classroom to a digital classroom.

No!  There were no unexpected outcome from the program that surprised me.

Tool # 10

My students should be made to understand that being good digital citizens is comparable to being good citizens, period.  Just as one cannot remove another person’s property without permission, it is illegal to infringe on creative rights of anyone.  The students cannot visit unauthorized websites.  Students should also be made aware of the importance of their safety and security while using internet or social media.  It is their responsibilities to avoid any online act that could potentially endanger them, and should not make inappropriate decisions.

I plan to use, and have registered for it.
