I love that Margaret Simon has started a Sunday Link Up for posts about digital literacy at her blog to challenge us to share our technology journeys.
School is up and running now, so it's time to think about implementing technology in my classroom and what that is going to look like. I loved what I incorporated last year, and I'm ready to do more. The last time I wrote a DigiLit Sunday blog post, I was thinking about putting my classroom library on Classroom Organizer through Booksource.com. I did it, and I'm really liking it. It was much quicker than I thought it was going to be, thanks to the scanner app. I think kids are more invested in checking out and returning books and keeping them circulating.
Now it's time to introduce the kids to more digital tools. I came across this link on Facebook the other day about what every 21st century teacher should be doing:
Great ideas! After reading Katherine Sokolowski's and Deb Day's posts recently about class Tweeting and creating class hashtags, I'm on board! I've never done that before. I will definitely be getting Kidblogs ready for both 5th and 6th graders soon (I created Kidblogs for my current 6th graders last spring), and I love the idea of podcasts. I also love the idea of questions of the week. What are some of your favorites on the list? What are you already doing? What are you NOT crazy about? I'd love to hear your input.
