Tool #11

One of my favorite tools is animoto.  This would be a fun tool for students to use to create a story through images and music.  Students would need to think about the appropriate audience and purpose of story when choosing photos and songs

My vision for the 21st Century Learner and classroom hasn't really changed. I agree that we need to make sure the classroom is a place where students can enhance their learning and contribution
 through the use of technology. I am looking forward to creating stations where students can use the Ipads .

 I was surprised and how user friendly creating this blog has been.  I am not as intimidated by technology now that I have had the opportunity to work with a few cool and useful tools.

Tool #10

 In order to be a good digital citizen one must understand: a) whatever is written/placed on the internet remains in the internet universe for ever b) everything that is written/placed on the internet is not true c) it is important to learn how to differentiate between credible  and noncredible sources on the internet.

 Noodle Tools is a great resource to use  with the class this year.

I could teach the idea of digital citizenship to my students by using the Alan November website and resources.  

The idea of digital citizenship could be explained to my parents through a letter or a very informal and audience friendly presentation using Alan November resources and examples or even examples created by students from my classes.
