Gadgets and Gizmos
Reflection of Coursework
The integration of technology into our teaching practice in critical in today's world. After setting a personal goal to increase my understanding and use of technology, this course served as a great foundation for improving my practice. I enjoyed learning new "gadgets and gizmos" to support student learning, increase collaboration, and to improve assessment measures. Over the course of the class, I have learned to create online flashcards and anticipation guide quizzes to assess prior knowledge. I have used Blendspace to bookmark favorite resources and learned to take screen snapshots of websites (see photo above). I have created a Fraction Jeopardy to review previously learned concepts.
Technology-Oriented Goals for the Future:
- Use an online grade-book
- Increase use of flipped assignments
- Increase use of digital "exit slips"
- Improve class website by providing links to curriculum related websites.
- Use Google-Classroom for weekly reading assignments.
