Using would benefit me more i think with my involvement in the coaching ranks than with the class room with a website totally dedicated to our baseball program we could get out a great deal of useful information that would not only benefit the players but also the parents as well as the baseball community With our strong booster organization we are always looking for ways to get out the information about fund raisers , schedules, special events etc what better way than a website totally dedicated to your particular team or sport I found that the more more I did the web design the better I got at designing what I wanted but still a far way from what I would use to promote our program I still need someone with some web design experience to give me some help

With each student now with a computer it will be much easier for me to assign students in class projects this will allow me to not only allow me to cover more topics but deal with the topics with more depth which will allow I hope a better and more extensive learning enviorment

Still trying to figure out where this type of learning would fit into my Health curriculum I wonder perhaps our group assignments and projects would be one place this might have some value It is my biggest challenge to try and found ways for this type of learning to be incorporated into my classroom
With a new school year it is important to get off on the right foot both academically and with the organization of classes. It was difficult to wake up this morning with a new thought that at 2:30 I was going to this class with a whole new agenda and new ideas. It is seems overwhelming to start teaching again and then start with all the new concepts that I just started to digest just a couple of weeks ago but I guess it is just part of the learning process.

whenever i deal with this type of class with computers i found myself humbled because of all the info i just don't know it is important for me to try to keep up to speed with all the new tech but sometimes i just get overwhelmed i try to filter out the info i will not use during the school year and focus on what will make me a better teacher

As we enter the third day of this class it is quite apparent to me of how much I need to know about the world of cyberspace it is quite overwhelming like everything i would imagination that practice makes perfect but what it the best way to accomplish this concept of practice is it just seat time with the computer in front of me because that is very difficult during the school year with the classes that I teach just wondering?

I am feeling a little more comfortable with this concept the google reader will be very much a positive influence on my planning out lessons plans especially for research projects this experience today is allowing me to become more computer friendly I did get a great response from steve on energy drinks which i can use in my nutrition unit

The major problem with blogging to me is that what is the background of the blogger. How experienced or well versed in the subject area is the the person in cyberspace giving all of these thoughts and opinions. I sometimes feel that I need to filter some of the info that i read on the blogs but how many people take what is written as gospel and form their opinion from that info which may or may not be factual.
