In this class I hope to gain some balance between literacy and technology. There has to be some middle ground here. I work with a bunch of teachers who lean either one direction or the other. They either overuse technology to the point that students simply can't make the connections or they don't use technology at all.
I want it to be useful, meaningful and I want it to help prepare my students to to become well-rounded global citizens. That's the challenge and I hope this class will bring me closer to finding the key.
I decided to share my shelfari shelf with all of you in case you'd like to try it out. My students use it to keep track of what they've read. They sign up with parents permission and the settings can be kept very secure.
