First Stop...BellevueSo many amazing connections were made during my first collaboration day with fellow iPad Academy members! I learned so much and started to create an iTunes University course for Social Studies! I also was able to collaborate with Sharae (Mrs. Geldes) on multiple iTunes courses for Reading as well. The learning that will be taking place in our classrooms as Sharae continues her journey and I start my journey with the iPads is going to be unbelievable.
Next Stop...AustraliaAbout halfway through the day, Brent Catlett shared with me that my students' blogs were featured as the Comments4kids Blog Post of the Day (http://comments4kids.blogspot.com/)!!! As I tweeted this information and shared this with my Principal, I just couldn't believe our class blog was actually featured on a website! Blogging about learning will continue to be a powerful and essential tool that goes hand in hand with what I am teaching and what my students are learning in my classroom! Our newest location (where we receive our blog comments) that will be added to our world map is Australia!
What an incredible day of learning, sharing, and making connections! I am so thankful that I am going to be able to provide my students with the opportunity to share their ideas and learning with people and classrooms from all over the world.
