Reflective Teacher at TeachThought November Blog Challenge- Day 15

When tech finally blasted onto the educational scene many years ago, I was ready, willing and eager to get my hands on anything. You see, I have always been a person who prefers doing to talking, to making something rather than theorizing about it. I am a visual and kinesthetic learner thanks to Gardner.

Technology allows creative outlets-anyone who knows me knows that I like to make things and I really enjoy working with a piece of technology when it lets me create and move forward with my ideas. Colleagues often chuckle because they see my eyes light up when something needs a little beta testing in school. If you've watched the AMC network show this fall called "Halt and Catch Fire", I would have loved to have been either of these 2 women working for the fictional Cardiff Electric as it enters the personal computer race in the 80s :

coding genius Cameron Howe or engineering brain Donna Clark 

Some favorite tech toys that I am using right now in class or personally becuase that let me create? Fotor, ThingLink, Padlet, Google Sites and Blogger!

  1. I would love to hear how you are using Thinglink. I dabbled in it when it first came out but never explored its potential for the classroom.
