teaching with the tools of a digital world

And so it begins…

Tech in the classroom. Where does it fit? What works? Is it worth it? Does it do any good?

These are some of the questions I hope to be looking into through the rest of this first school year (at least).  I have set my professional growth goal as “Increase student engagement through technology

.”  Part of this was motivated by receiving the highest tier award for my district’s Digital Success Ladder ($1800) and just this week a Digital Educator Leadership Training award ($5000+) and three years of commitment to the program. How in the world should I spend this money? And more importantly what will make the biggest impact on student learning?

 

I will also use this forum as a way to track my successes and challenges and questions I have about which tech to use, how to improve what I’ve got and to brainstorm new ideas.
