I have used many different forms of technology including iPads, Nooks, PC, Lap tops, and SMART Boards. I am living this dream this year and will be in in rooms that I can use many of the things I have be teaching in this class with my students. I have a SMART board, a data projector,I have two student used computers, 2 teacher use computers, and a district issued iPad. I recently got 3 iPads for my classroom and the Fine Arts Department at each school will be receiving 30 iPads for us to share. I am excited to find new ways to include the iPad and its many apps in my classroom
Please leave me a comment with your educational background, professional experience, what you are currently teaching, and the technology you have available to you at your school. I will be using this information to help drive some of our class blog posts. I want to make sure that I am covering the technology that you are using so that you get the most out of this class. Please be sure to check MyCMU for the rubric and the requirements for the class blog. This information can be found in the syllabus in the Resources and Materials section.
