Twitter and Me

My experiences with Twitter are great. It is a fast and eay way to talk to other people in our class. If you have any questions you dont have to wait until the next day to ask it, you can just tweet it and someone is bound to answer your questions. You can hashtag sedu183 and everyone else who hashtagged it gets to see what you wrote and can help you if you need help, or you culd help them if they have a problem or question. We can connect and get to know our fellow classmates. Twitter can help teachers connect to parent and other faculty. They can aso talk to each other and share their other ideas with their co-workers. Taking the quiz was easier and more convient than using a paper to answer questions right out of the book. Instead we connected with our classmates and got to see what their thoughts were. http://www.hashtags.org/platforms/twitter/30-ways-to-use-twitter-for-education/ http://www.good.is/posts/why-twitter-is-a-teacher-s-best-tool/

The Final Frontier




This assignment is about the use of technology in the classroom, and how it is useful. The article discusses how technology has changed and how it is useful in the classrooms. Also, the articles give a lot of reasons why technology is so important today. The article gives facts on technology uses in the classrooms, not only is it needed for students teachers need it as well to communicate to other teachers and parents as well. When they came together they made sure that both sides were clearly stated, and everyone got their opinions and facts in. Both of them have had good an bad experiences with technology, but agree that it is still important. Here is my groups presentation.
