  • Interesting Tidbits Today

    Posted by Teresa-Technologist Killebrew at 10/26/2010 9:00:00 AM
    I read several Technology headlines in my Google Reader almost daily.  I found this little tidbit and thought I'd share this with you today.

  • Glogster

    Posted by Teresa-Technologist Killebrew at 10/21/2010 9:30:00 AM
    A few weeks ago, I posted my thoughts about blogging.  Today I will be sharing some new site that has limitless possibilities for teachers and students.  Either blogging or "glogging", both are fun and "green".  Green, you say?  Yes, because both are Web 2.0.  You don't need paper, pencil or supplies, other than your computer.  How many of us remember class posters or projects and you had to go to the store and purchase all kinds of stuff?  Not now!
    Edu.glogster.com takes blogging one step further.  It doesn't mean that blogging is obsolete.  Glogging just add another dimension to blogging.  Blogging is journaling your ideas and posting them to the web.  Glogging is blogging but allows not only text, but images, graphics, videos, sound, and more. 
    I am learning how to use it, but I thought I'd sure a quick one that I created in little to no time at all.  Check it out.
    What's cool.....I can link it as I did above or I can embed it.  I do that with the next one, so you can see.

  • Best Blabber about Blogs

    Posted by Teresa-Technologist Killebrew at 9/21/2010 1:10:00 PM
    Pencil writeAlthough I have created Blogs before, I never really had an idea for where it would lead.  I do fully believe that a blog needs purpose and I guess I never really had inspiration towards a purpose.  As I have become a more avid reader of technology blogs, I now feel compelled to begin one of my own.  I would like for my audience to be both faculty and staffs that I serve in our district.  I don't feel like there's enough hours in our school day to address all the needs of either staff on a consistent basis.  For one thing, I have a community of very diverse learners.  Some welcome technology with open arms, while others are rather shy.  I think that I want to address the needs of both.  I still feel led to bring all learners forward, even the most timid.  
    As an instructor, I often find myself teaching very basic technology skills.  I find myself rather stuck.  I want to learn new technology.  How about you?  What have you heard lately in conversation with teachers and administrators around you?  Do they talk of things you are interested in learning?  Do you ever wonder how they know these things and you have fallen behind?  Oh believe me, I feel that way a lot.  There are too many things to do in a day, but I still want to learn new skills.  I read in a technology blog this tidbit of information.......

    Eric Schmidt the CEO of Google made this statement at a tech conference on August 4th:

    Every two days now we create as much information as we did from the dawn of civilization up until  2003.   That’s something like five exabytes of data.

    Let me repeat that: we create as much information in two days now as we did from the dawn of man through 2003.

    and it made me realize I just have to learn one new thing a day, or in a week.  If I set my goal to do that, I probably will do just that.    There is just so much being created I can't learn it all in a day, but I can learn.  I can find something that creates an avenue for me to advance my technology skills. 

    Are you interested in learning something new?  What have you heard lately that you would like to learn to do in your classroom and/or grade level?  Share your thoughts and ideas with me.  I want to learn what you are interested in learning.
