Tool 3: Image Generators & Mashups

I picked to do a Mosaic Maker,, because it looked like a fun thing to do and besides I haven't made one. This website would be use by my students to create a Mosaic of items they love or it can be use for an assignment where they would gather pictures of a specific assignment. Just like cutting out pictures of a magazine and creating a Mosaic but this way technology would be a key factor.

Wordle: Tool #3

The Wordle,, I created has words that describe me and my profession. This software would be use to build vocabulary in my classroom.

Tool 2: Building Community & Comments

Building a PLN is an important way to communicate with my colleagues, students, or parents about education. With colleagues we can share ideas or interest about our profession. With students we can share homework, extra study ideas, assistants with problems or question they might have on an assignment. Most important its another way to incorporate technology into your classroom. As for with parents we can give advise or answer any questions a parent might have on an assignment their child has. These are just some simple ideas on how to use a PLN. I'm sure there are a whole bunch of other ways to incorporate a PLN into my profession.

Now for the comment advice its always good to listen on others opinions or comments about a certain topic. A blogger can leave some good advice or sometimes be mean and leave bad or upsetting advice on your blog. But that's why we live in America...Freedom of Speech!
