In 2010, I took over the school library and continued teaching French. In 2011, our school corporation adopted a 1:1 initiative in grades 2-12. Students in grade 2-5 have a personal iPad and students in grades 6-12 have a Lenovo laptop. I spent hours teaching students, teachers and parents about tech tools they can use in the classroom and at home. I went totally paperless in my classroom.
I am a huge fan of technology in education. I use it daily in my classroom and enjoy learning as much as I can about anything tech. I spend a lot of my summer vacation reading books, attending conferences and webinars and learning technology. I decided in 2012 to start blogging and I figured the best way to do so was to start blogging about technology. I try to write two posts a month about library topics and tech tools that can be used in a classroom. Hopefully my journey will help someone else make a successful classroom with technology.
I participate as often as possible in numerous twitter chats, including #edchat, #tlchat, #aslachat, #titletalk, #edtech, #INeLearn, just to name a few.
