Assistive Technology

Assistive Technology

  I really appreciated Kelsey’s blog post that categorized the different levels of assistive technology to no tech, low tech and high tech. It helped me better understand the different levels of it. It helped me realize that I employed a lot of no tech in my grade 1 classroom without realizing it. I feel as though […]

Summary of Learning

Summary of Learning

For my summary of learning, I tried out Thinglink. It was really cool! For my presentation, you are invited to place your cursor onto the circle button above the numbers starting with #1. Please keep the cursor there to hear the entire audio clip then, you will continue through to all the buttons until you reach […]

Assessment Technology

Assessment Technology

  Image source I decided to choose Kahoot for my assessment tool. It was fun to use in the presentation created by the group and I found it extremely intriguing.  I am unable to try it in the classroom since I am not teaching this year. Instead, I would evaluate how it would be in a grade 5/6 […]

The evolving web

The evolving web

Image Source Peoples’ eyes might as well be attached to their phones… We see it everywhere. Folks out for dinner who no longer have authentic and natural conversations because they’re so attached to their phones. People who get anxious after an hour yoga class because they couldn’t scroll through their Instagram or Facebook. I wish […]

Oh! SQUIRREL! …

Can anyone else relate to the title of this post? I am that person. The person who gets distracted and side-tracked soooo easily. However, I am also an insanely good multi-tasker (don’t mind me while I toot my own horn over here). But, truly, I believe all teachers are incredible multi-taskers. We have to be! In […]

Sesame Street Student?

Sesame Street Student?

I am a little bit surprised to see that the iconic Sesame Street was controversial for “undermining traditional education”. Rather than seeing that families having access to educational shows and education outside of the school setting as a negative thing, I think it’s important to see it as a great thing. Sesame Street talked about […]

Theories of Knowledge and Learning

Theories of Knowledge and Learning

Upon reading about the theories of Behaviorism, Cognitivism and Constructivism in Ertmer and Newby’s article, I immediately identified with behaviorism. Having spent most of my teaching career with early primary students, the theory of Behaviorism and Cognitivism seemed to have been the main theories in my classroom early on. Just as Kelsey and Amy both linked Behaviourism to establishing expectations and procedures […]

My Contemporary Understanding of Educational Technology

My Contemporary Understanding of Educational Technology

Retrieved from: http://www.educationaltechnologyadvisors.com/ My understanding of educational technology is the use of technology to add to a lesson to help students understand. Technology can be used in education as a method of delivery of information or for a re-establishment of understanding.  Do I believe in relying on one source of educational technology to attain a specific outcome?
