Aha Moment

So yesterday I told you about the my small SmartBoard mishap. Then I asked are we to dependent on technology?  While sometimes I feel like the answer to that question is yes, we all know that technology is the way of the future now. Because of all of that I had an awesome "aha moment" I'm going to be applying to my second Masters Degree program this time for Education Technology. Why? you might ask. Well that answer is simple, I'm the gadget queen and I love to find ways to incorporate those gadgets into my lessons. I've used it all from laptops, cd players, MP3 players, iPods, digital camera, my iPad, iPhone,video camera, SmartBoard and Elmo document camera. But my problem is I'm sure there are other things that can be done, another way I can make learning so much fun for all of my students. I'm also want to learn as much as I can so I can share the information with you guys (maybe even be able to do a workshop for teachers). I've already contacted the school of my choice National Lewis University about their program and I'm so excited to get more info from them. I guess it's true what they say teachers are really life long learners.

My program/university is doing a FREE online technology conference. You can earn CEU credits for FREE as well! We have some amazing webinars/break-outs. I'm teaching one on online publishing. Here's the link to sign up.

Always more to learn when it comes to technology. And I agree, teachers NEED to be lifelong learners. The day I stop learning is the day I stop teaching!
