Tool #6

I could use Wallwisher to have kids describe how they would perform a certain process. is another way i can have students communicate with me. It is very easy to use and I think it is great for the student who is shy and does not like to talk in front of others. You can ask the students to perform specific questions or explain a process or even ask for help without fear of other students making fun of them.

Tool #5

Glogster utilizes technology so students can interact and discuss the lesson of the day while animoto will allow the students to describe how to solve a math problem via a video.

Tool #4

I tried to load a spreadsheet as a google doc but it didn't look at all like a spreadsheet. I'll have to go back and revisit how to do this. I like the fact that you can share a document and edit it within a group of peers or students all at the same time. I want to see if I can see a class of math students working on a problem "live."

Tool #3

I went to you tube and found a great video for MS fractions. You might have seen it before but if you haven't, check it out. The name is "Mr. Duey-Fractions"

Tool #2

It was very enlightening to read other teachers posts about their experiences with 11 tools. I don't feel quite so bad now. I am actually looking forward to learning more as I go on with the process. At my current pace, I should be finished by the end of the year, the school year that is!
