Welcome to Teachers & Technology!

Hi all!

Welcome to Teachers & Technology. This is my final project for EDTL 6310: Technology in the 21st Century Classroom.

This final project is going to contain 30 different technology resources in a common local place for educators to use to their advantage. Each post will describe a different resource for teachers to use. I will continue to build upon this resource throughout the rest of the year, as this is the topic of my final culminating Master's project, as well.

The resources on this blog could be various Web 2.0 tools or simply just a website for teachers to incorporate into their classrooms to tie in with a specific curriculum area or activity. I have composed a schedule of when posts will be released for this project AND what these posts will be about:

November 1: Screentoaster Poll Everywhere
November 2: Animoto
November 3: Diigo
November 4: VoiceThread
November 5: Edmodo
November 6: Wikispaces
November 7: Prezi
November 8: Storybird
November 9: Google Docs
November 10: Dipity
November 11: SlideShare
November 12: TeacherTube & SchoolTube
November 13: TubeChop
November 14: Podomatic
November 15: Scribd
November 16: Create-a-Graph
November 17: Remember the Milk
November 18: Bubbl.us
November 19: Certificate Street
November 20: Glogster
November 21: Tagxedo/Wordle
November 22: Cramberry
November 23: Teacher Planet
November 24: Build Your Wild Self
November 25: Class Dojo
November 26: Zocial Books
November 27: Penzu
November 28: BiblioNasium
November 29: Voki
November 30: Trackstar

This blog is also a graded blog for the EDTL 6310 course. In order to grade this blog, I will be creating a rubric containing items such as the quality of the resources found, the amount of ideas that come from the resources that can be incorporated into the classroom, the length of blog posts, as well as the depth of the investigation/description of each resource.

Thank you for following along and I hope that you can find a use for some of these resources in your classrooms!
