My First Blog

This is the first time I've experimented with a Blog. It's something I've wanted to do and I'm glad this program is pushing me to start! For the first assignment in this program I will be looking for a video discussing technology in the classroom. This is something that is constantly changing education and I have always thought I had a pretty good handle on it...however I'm now realizing just how much more is out there and just how little I've tried!

Technology in the Classroom

This video discusses the uses of Ipods in the classroom. It's an Australian news report interviewing various students and teachers involved in a program utilizing Ipods in classes. Students download all the notes etc from class and can carry it with them at all times.

Studywiz and iPods Improve Student Learning

This video has made me think twice about the use of Ipods in classrooms. I of course have an Ipod and use it frequently for music, but I had not thought of it like this before...there really are so many possibilities with this for all subject areas!
