MyWardrobePartyPicksstar.jpg My Web Wardrobe


I think of the today's web 2.0 tools as a wardrobe for my class. A wardrobe is a collection of wearing apparel and accessories. My instructional wardrobe must consist only of those things that fit me and make me better as a teacher. I will share my wardrobe with you, but you must try on all sorts of outfits to see what fits you the best. Happy Shopping!
If your "Web Closet" is empty, try on a few of the items listed below. Visit my blog, Reflect to Redirect

Thanks!


The Closet: Where
We Put it All
The Basics: Pants,
Blouse, Dress, Skirt & Jacket
Frilly Accessories:
Jewelry, Shoes, Hats, & Purses
The Formal: Rarely
Worn, But Stunning
The Mirror:
Reflecting on the Outfit
Think about Storage
Think about Basic
must-have items
Think about attention-
getting items
Think about that once
a year item
Think about how to
look at what you've done
Where will you store all of the
things you and your students need? How will you showcase
their work? How will you keep
up with all of the great tools you find every day?
The learning phases
(intro, learn, practice, and apply)
need support. What are the best
"go-to" tech tools to help in the
early phases?
How can I get my students
to get excited
or really focus on something
important? What tools can I use to
make sure they know what we are
learning is BIG?
I don't have time for
big projects with every unit.
But what are a few tools when big ideas
need to be emphasized?
It's always hard to take the
time for reflection on learning,
but it is one of the most
important things we can do. What are some quick ways my
students can reflect on their learning?
