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.
