As I sit here at our local Intermediate Unit in a seminar by Will Richarson, I am pumped by the possibilities of what I can now do (or will soon be able to do) in my classroom. The plethora of information that is available to the "wired" students of today is astronomical as compared to what was available a thousand years ago when I was on the other side of the desk, stuck with strictly pen and paper.
I feel that I am a fairly technological person who is dedicate to life long learning. However, today, I feel pretty darn dumb. lol. I thought I was a user of technology, but obviously I was just taking the "normal" classroom content and pasting right to the internet.

The new and improved me has taken on this challenge, will embrace this challenge. Our first assignent is to create a blog. I've done the Myspace route, and now I need to adapt myself and apply what this seminar (and Will) have taught me.... I will be changing my teaching, my perceptions, my methods to become a new and improved Spanish teacher who will ultimately better benefit my students by bringing them the world.

Does anyone have any suggestions as to where to go from here?

Consider going to epals.com and looking for a class in Spain or Mexico with whom your class could do some collaboration. Perhaps you could develop a wiki together. Your class could be responsible for the Spanish on it and the other class could be responsbile for the English. The students could help one another improve their language skills.

Thank you so much! There are so many possibilities. My head is just spinning on where to go from here.
