Reflection Prompt: Discuss technology and your own productivity and professional practice.  

Description: Technology has enhanced the means of productivity in the classroom. With so many resources at our fingertips, information is readily available and may be reproduced to accommodate diverse learners in a multitude of formats - audio, video, and text.

Impact
: Educators use technology to communicate (email, word processing, instant messaging/chat, cell phone); track student progress (spreadsheets, databases); and few have taken technology further with video conferencing, calendar sharing, Google Docs, blogs, concept mapping, and Test/Survey makers; all these technologies enhance productivity for teachers, saving them time and effort.


Intent: As a Technology Facilitator, I plan to devise Professional Learning Communities for my teachers. In these Professional Learning Communities, I will share technology tools they can use for productivity and professional development. The school I am in now, doesn't have internet access in the classrooms. We will write a grant that correlates with ISTE NETS Standards to wired and outfitted with technology. In the meantime, I plan to use my laptop to introduce them to Microsoft Office to show them how it can be used to enhance their productivity. I will also work on a website embedding video on mini-lessons the teachers can use with their students fitting the curriculum needs of the teacher's content area.


Let's explore some tools! Click on links below, and let's get started!

Wikispaceslogo
Wikispaces - "A wiki is a space on the Web where you can share work and ideas, pictures and links, videos and media — and anything else you can think of. Wikispaces is special because we give you a visual editor and a bunch of other tools to make sharing all kinds of content as easy for students as it is for their teachers."

BCA imageWikispaces for the  Classroom - This wiki is set up for Professional Development training with the teachers of Bethlehem Christian Academy. I will give the teachers instructions on how to create a wiki for their classroom. This wiki will serve as a model of what the teachers should include in their classroom wikis.

Wiki of the Flipped Classroom - This is a wiki I created with my Instructional Design team to be used as a learning module on the Flipped Classroom for Dr. Cheryl L. Ward Ph. D., Department of Educational Foundations & Leadership, College of Education, University of Akron.
