Following the excellent Weaving Technology conference that was held in Wagga, NSW, Australia last October I composed a few ideas regarding the thought or process or getting started with technology in the classroom.
I blogged about these ideas here on my main blog ~ Watershed
Essentially, when starting out with technology in the classroom I feel it is useful to keep the following three rules of thumb in mind...
1. Choose an aspect of the curriculum with which you hold a passion.
2. Choose an online tool with which you feel comfortable or ‘clicks’ for you.
3. Steer a simple, straightforward path at the outset.
You can read more about each of these ideas over at Watershed
As well, timimg is also important... For example I find term III is favourable moment when the pressure is off somewhat. No final exams and no reports to write.
