Tool #11: Self Assessing and Reflecting

My favorite tools are Pinterest, Youtube, Promethean Planet, Prezi, Wallwisher and Glogster. With Glogster we had all 3rd - 5th grade students research a composer then make a glogster. It had to contain date of birth, nationality, period, 3 famous songs, 2 interesting facts, at least 1 picture and 1 video clip.

I've always been very technology oriented so my thinking has not changed. The only thing that constantly changes are the tools I use and how I use them. My only wish would be more funding for technology, especially in the arts. Fine Arts classes are the most visual classes on every campus, usually with teachers who are wired to be creative, and we are the last to get the latest technology!

The biggest surprise was how many of the tools I already new about and have already used.

My one suggestion as a teacher who is new to the district, would be to have some classes for teachers who may be new to the district but DO have teaching experience.
