Tool # 9

I totally agree that technology is the greatest way to teach and differentiate instruction and self motivated learners. We are moving toward information learning. We need to focus on expanding the boundaries of learning. Less on teaching students computer literate and more on teaching students to be information literate and communication literate.

tool # 8

AS I model for my students , I will have set expectoration on how to use and take care of the technology devices; How to return the equipment to it's place. Planning ahead and helping the students seeing technology as a tool for teaching and learning. As students practice using the devices again, a lot of modeling is also important.

Tool 7

For your Tool 7 assignment, create a post and respond to the following:

After visiting the resources above, design a collaborative project with another classroom.
Post the following about the project:

What tool(s) you plan to use
A brief description of the project (plan - two or three sentences)

I plan to connect with students from a different countries according to students interest with the intention of sharing ideas and ways of learning letting students teach other students.
