Tool # 11: Assessing and Reflecting

The favorite tools that I new have in my personal technology box are Edmodo and Storybird. A particular activity that I will plan for my students using Storybird would be an interdisciplinary assignment incorporating Math and Language Arts together. They would create a picture storybook involving a particular mathematical concept that they would want to teach others. 

I have transformed my thinking about the learning that will take place in my classroom by realizing even more so now that learning is dynamic and ever changing. My vision has changed with the realization that I need to keep up with the technological changes and advancements. There is a vast amount of  technological resources that exist and I want to make sure I have access to them for my students.

An unexpected outcome from this program that surprised me is how many available technological resources are out there. It can be a bit daunting because they are so numerous, but it's exciting as well knowing that we have so much available to is. This wasn't always the case in the past. We, as 21st Century educators, are very fortunate.
