11 Tools for 21st Century--TOOL #1

I was so excited when I knew this was going to be available for summer staff development. Creating an avatar with Voki was so simple. Last summer, I had trouble uploading my avatar. Voki was an easy site to navigate. I LOVED doing 23 things last summer. After completing 23 things, I was able to create a kindergarten blog for my team. We posted and blogged about all the happenings in Kinder at MWE. It was a great tool used to keep our parents informed and gave them a peek of what was going on in their child's classrooms. In the fall, I hope to create a classroom blog for my class. I am going to help my 3rd grader make her own blog this summer. Hopefully, by the end of the school year 2010, I might be able to have kindergartners creating their own blogs. Blogging is such a great tool to share information.

  1. Glad to see you back with your enthusiasm and looking forward to seeing what you do with the tools with kindergarten students in mind. How lucky for your 3rd grader that she will have an online journal of summer thoughts.
