It’s easy to innovate when you have great innovators!

This school year has brought about a lot of change for my school, especially when it comes to the use of technology. In the last 6 months, we rebuilt a brand new school website, all the teachers at my school have created their own class websites, we created our Twitter,Facebook and Linkedin group, we purchased a class set of laptops and we have started to experiment with tablets and iPads. Furthermore, we created an online course for our grade 9 Information Communication in Technology Business class.

As the school’s ICT Coordinator, I am really proud and honored  to work with such a dedicated and hardworking team of teachers!

There is however one individual in particular who has embraced all of this new technology in her classroom with creativity and natural ability. Mme Nora, our Kindergarten teacher, has created an amazing classroom blog with daily updates of what her students are learning. She has also created her own twitter account to share her knowledge and collaborate with Kindergarten teachers around the world in addition to integrating tablets and laptops into her daily lessons.

Therefore, it is my pleasure to nominate Mme Nora’s acadekinders blog for the Best class blog award for 2011 : http://acadekinders.weebly.com/index.html

Happy nominating!

Welcome!

Hello,
I am really excited to start my new blog. Over the past year I have been learning so much about new and exciting technology tools and applications available for our classrooms. In addition, I have many friends and co-workers often asking me to share with them the tools available and what I have learned through my research! So here it is, a place to hear about my experience with these tools in the classroom and a place for me to share the knowledge I have acquired.

Enjoy!
