Google Classroom for the win!

Google Classroom for the win!

This week, we were asked to choose, and use, an assessment technology that is new to us in our classrooms. Although not new to me as a classroom productivity suite and Web 2.0 tool, I chose to focus on the assessment aspect of Google Classroom, which I have never used before. I have been using […]

To Web and Education 3.0… and beyond!

So just when I think I finally have Web 2.0 down…. Web 3.0 comes flying at me. What does it all mean?! via GIPHY In my group’s presentation this week, we covered the evolution of Web 1.0 to Web 2.0. This truly marked the change of an information only web, to an interactive web in […]

Equity for Inclusion

Equity for Inclusion

It is so hard to believe that I am writing about our 5th and final debate! This last debate topic focused on the question of whether technology is a force for equity in society. Team agree made up of Jen, Dawn, and Sapna started off with a strong opening statement. They argued points about the […]
