I've taught for 26 years-most of that time in kindergarten and first grade. I currently teach a regular ed first grade with BSI, ESL and Advanced Studies students. I am new to using technology in the classroom and want to learn as much as I can. I am married. My husband and I have two sons. Our oldest son is an IST major at Penn State University. Our youngest son is a senior in high school. We have one huge dog (black lab/great dane mix) named Maddix and a sweet black cat named Molly.

Hi Fran, this technology continues to be overwhelming at times, even for me who has been at it for two years. I suggest you read blog posts wherever possible to get a feel for what people are doing now and just start a blog yourself. Edublogs or blogger or blogmeister seem to be the most common blogging platforms. I use wordpress for my teacher type blog, where I map my journey but use edublogs for my class and student blogs.
When I started blogging I just wrote about what I was doing and hoped to achieve and over time it has taken direction. Have you had a look at voicethread. That is a great program that you can set up easily and wordle makes your work look good. Let me know how you go.
