Tool #2

Tool two seemed like it was going to be an easy task, but it proved to be harder than I thought. There are a lot of blogs out there by teachers, but not all of them are useful for me. I couldn't really figure out how to "follow" these other blogs, but I wont quit trying. There are several out there that do apply to my classroom, and I wish to share those with everyone in the future.I'm going to set up a Diigo account and see if that helps.

Sharing thoughts publicly never bothered me, I think blogs can be a useful tool to a certain degree. I think one weakness of sharing thoughts publicly is that other readers can take your thoughts or ideas and develop a skewed perception of the writer based on a small sample of writings.

This is a blog about using technology in the classroom, I couldn't figure out how to subscribe to it without an "error" popping up along the road so I'm including it in this post.

Tool #1

Just finished Tool #1, which took a lot longer than expected. I'm not very good at navigating through Google chrome, but I do have experience using blogger in years past so the creating and posting wasn't very difficult. The Voki was also simple to make, although I don't know if he will do much for those viewing my page. Game on, 11 tools.
