final reflection

I liked learning about new technology out there. I would have to try next year to incorporate some of the things I learned into my teaching. Thanks Sara for putting this together!

comic websites I have used all of these, plus have given them out to my comic book club. I have even introduced it to some students that had to make a book for a content area class.


I like the idea behind Prezis - but I would have to play with it for awhile to really find it affective for Strategies. I like the fact that you can zoom in when you really want the students to pay attention to something, so when teaching the mnemonics you can zoom in and out.

I was thinking that I could use this for the visual imagery strategy. The students can describe the scene using their own words. The other students then can add to it.

I was not familiar with this term until I watched the videos. I learned that I can use images as long as I say where I got them from, Something that I was already doing - especially with my club -
This is where I have used most of the images that I look up on Google.
No, I lied, I just looked around my room and saw the posters that my kids made. Some have where they got the images from, others don't. I will make sure that next year, my students will write where they got the images from.


My daughter used Glogster in 4th grade, so I already knew about this "fear". I really liked how it worked and how she could show what she knew.

I see kids in my class using it to make their own versions of the mnemonics that they are learning.
