As part of my goal to learn about and incorporate technology in my teaching of primary students, I set out to complete two major events this year. First, I got really excited about the first Google Apps for Education Ontario Summit. Subsequently, I made the commitment and signed up for the Integration of Information and Computer Technology in Instruction, Part 1 AQ course.
I was back and forth on doing the AQ, because I have always been pretty comfortable with technology, but it really became more about improving my learning overall and cultivating a learning community for myself.
In our very first class we created a 6 word story by finding an image about learning or teaching online and using Pixlr to add words to the image. We could only use 6 words, to sum up our ideas. I like this idea, and will definitely be trying it with my students. I am attaching the story I made here, as a focus of the blog, and to hopefully get the ball rolling.
