Podcast #5 - Technology Goals for My Classroom This School Year - Podcast #5

Since today is the last day of official summer break, I'm taking a few minutes to outline my six big technology goals for the 2005 / 2006 school year. I currently have a class web site, do my assessment using an online tool named Quia and send out a weekly parent newsletter on e-mail. Those will be topics of future shows. Today is my pie in the sky list of what I would like to acomplish in relation to new technologies. This is amazing time with the emergence of blogs and podcasting.

I encourage any feedback about the show topics or anything in relation to using technology in the classroom. Please feel free to e-mail me at speakingofhistory@gmail.com

  1. I Notice you are reading The World is
    Flat. I have been wanting
    to read this book. It would be nice if you developed a podcast concerning the ideas and concepts presented in this book. It would make education more relevant to your 8th grade history class.
    I am very impressed with your activities as
    a teacher. We need more innovative teachers like you.
    Good luck.
