My beginning journey into the blogging world...

Technology is everywhere. While I love learning new things, I do not seem to have a gift for picking up on technology quite as quickly as my son. He is six and if you give him an electronic device, he can show you how to work it within the hour. This is the generation we are now teaching. They are growing up in a world where technology is a way of life. Whether teachers like it or not, we have to embrace this new form of teaching.
I feel overwhelmed when I read about all the different resources available to use with students. However, I have taken the step to learn about wikis, podcasts, digital storytelling, etc. And yes, I am putting myself out for display in the blogging world, which intimidates me greatly.


  1. Hi Christina,
    Welcome to the world of blogging. I also have children that I cannot keep up with technologically. I must admit to having gone to my 14 year old and 15 year old for advice on how to's at times. Hopefully this course and the learning we gain here will help us keep a step ahead of our students and provide us with effective means by which to accentuate their learning.

  2. I feel equally as intimidated! My husband is very tech-savvy, so I occasionally catch him mocking my frustration. It's all in fun, but the whole process can be difficult at times. I hope we all learn to be just as technologically inclined as those around us!
