It’s been about 3 weeks now since I decided that I needed to enter the 21st Century technology savvy world of a teacher. I had been living fairly vicariously through my daughter who teaches at The Canadian International School of Hong Kong. I have been teaching for over 20 years, have never felt afraid of technology, but using TIME as my excuse have always been a few leaps (a small river bed, not a canyon) behind truly savvy tech people.
This year I am taking a break from the main stream classroom, not because I felt I needed one but because I needed time with my granddaughter. This has freed up some time for sitting in front of the computer. I started with this blog, have a delicious account, follow too many blogs with rss, twitter, can do a presentation in Prezi, understand how I could someday use wiki, Google document, ether pad and have played with changing photo images in a huge array of free on line programs.
I’d like to say thank you to all those technology teachers and a few english teachers who have been my unknowing mentors along the way. My question is: WHERE ARE THE SCIENCE TEACHERS?? I am following two of you and when I have something to contribute, probably next year, I will start joining in the conversation. Until then I’d really like to know where the rest of you are.
