Greetings/salutations! It's been a while. So much to say and get caught up on. For now, I'll keep it short.
Summer was dynamite. Fast, furious, and fun. Lots of play and travel with the family. Really cool work finishing up the teaching and technology cohort with great teachers and colleagues.
We're 8 days into the school year, and I am still feeling quite a bit of excitement towards this new year. I think a big part of that is the great springboard effect from finishing the Tech cohort with such great people doing really cool things.
Incredible the difference a year has made. After being a part of the cohort, tech integration has been a part of my classroom this year from day 1. For example, every student is enrolled in and using my LA Moodle Course. Additionally, students have had access to my class website since open house night even before school started, when they and their parents could scan the Qr Code for the website with their smart phones.
Hopefully I will write more this year than last. I'm also considering an EduBlog for more networking and classroom features. More to come...
