Mrs. Cassidy's 1st grade class has huge potential in learning about all the wonderful tools the internet and other sources of technology have to offer because they are already blogging!
Here is a link to an interview with Mrs. Cassidy. Her approach on technology is very strong and focused. She uses technology in her classroom on a regular basis for several reasons! Even when she's at home she's on the computer looking for more things to use and get more familiar with. Once again, I'm not real sure yet of how I could use technology for a PE Class outside of the use of tech today such as YouTube and iPhones. But if I were going to be a teacher of some other kind, say, an English teacher. I believe blogging would be a primary tool in my class simply because blogging can provide more things than just a regular essay can. When students write essays, who do they write to? The teacher. Say essays had to be posted on the internet in the students blog. They would have a worldwide audience. Next, as a English teacher, it would be my responsibility to teach the kids how to read, spell, and use proper grammar and punctuation. Blogging would provide endless "worksheets" and study tools as well as access to the internet to explain why and how their mistake is incorrect.
