I am personally going to take this blog into a completely opposite direction than I expected I would and play devil's advocate.
I would have to say I have learned about many great tools that could be useful within many different classrooms. Glogster and googledocs are two of my favorites and the research I have done on the Ignite Software I found while doing article critiques for my research methods course is something I believe I will try and utilize in my own classroom dependant on cost. I am however finding myself drifting as we learn many of the things I grew up doing and have often utilized on a daily basis, for years.
I personally came from a school of block scheduling and the use of technology is easily implemented into the lengthy courses. In a 45 minute class how simple or difficult would it be to utilize your instructional time wisely and maximiz the use of technology? As a teacher would you become dependant on the utilization of the computer lab? In a low budget school with minimum access to technology, how would one implement and utilize technology to their advantage or would the teacher be bound by budget restrictions? What ways could a teacher easily work around these budget restrictions? I would love to learn different ways to utilize some of these items and work them into lesson plans based on the content areas we are teaching.
