This week has been a week of signing up! I have new accounts with three different websites including: voice thread, edmodo, and iCivics. I’m hoping to use all of these in my classroom this year! In other news: my wikipedia page is still up!! woohoo!
I’m excited to say that I am officially an author on wikipedia! As an assignment for my graduate class, I had to create an entry on wikipedia and check on it periodically to see if it was still up. I wrote a very brief article on Spode Christmas Tree China and I am happy to say that after three days, my article is still there!
Never thought I’d use social media for educational purposes (other than gossip), but tonight is changing that! For my graduate class, I had to post on twitter and one other social media site (I chose facebook). I also learned from my classmates a few ways that I may be able to implement social media in the classroom!
My name is Kathryn Mercil and I’m a 7th grade gifted US history teacher. In my spare time I enjoy running, reading, and crafts! Though I am young and have been using technology for a while now, I am still a little slow! I’m excited about starting this blog and hopefully becoming more tech savvy in the process!
