Technology Wonderland

Since school ended on June 5th, I have been taking technology classes. Although I enjoy taking classes just for fun, I realized back in May that with only 9 credits to go I could move up the salary ladder with the school district. The classes that I have taken include:
  • Using Technology to teach History (waste of time)
  • PowerPoint Basics (complete waste of time)
  • Multimedia Video Use - Understanding Camtasia (really cool)
  • Dreamweaver Basics (very exciting)
  • Using the Ipod in the Classroom (AMAZING)
  • Photoshop Elements (Heidi I will let you know all about it when it is finished)
  • Methodology of Technology (total bore)
As you can tell I have liked some of the classes better than others. The Ipod class is astonishing and I think it will help me streamline the way I teach with my students next year. I had a long conversation with my roommate about it and she thinks this could help me as I start to contemplate my National Board Certifications this next year. The only problem now is getting an Ipod. My first year of teaching one of my lovely students stole mine and I have never replaced it.


  1. Yea! I'm glad you have a blog :) Come visit mine! :) How fun that you have time to take some classes. I want to take the photoshop class ... my friend just got me into it for scrapbooking. It can do sooo much, but I'm just now learning it so I'm overwhelmed.

  2. Woohoo! I am featured in your blog entry! I added a link to your blog on my sidebar. Please link to mine as well. Maybe I can get some more readers and therefore more comments. :+)
