You know what's better than giving your students fun and engaging assignments that incorporate technology? Giving your students fun and engaging assignments that incorporate technology that are already planned for you and ready to go! Introducing DS 106 - the coolest site for teachers to find ideas for multimedia projects on.
Before I was enrolled in my ECMP 355 class, I used Google for the basics - searching, (g)mailing, mapping, word documenting, and, without even knowing it was part of Google's empire, Youtubing. Since enrolling in the class, however, I've learned a few other Gricks (that's Google + Tricks!) that are sure to help me personally and professionally.
Today I was thinking about how I am going to document my learning for ECMP 355. I have Google Reader set up, I manage my comments, and I have my blog posts categorized but I was wondering about how I could show the growth in my site layout and design (because I am constantly changing things as I come up with and come across new ideas.)
