Welcome aboard my pirate blog, in which I'll sail the high-tech seas in search of booty to bring back to my classroom. As a guide I'll have Amy Ackerman and my shipmates in the Instructional Technology course. I'm hoping to supercharge my teaching, transform it through technology, conquer the techno-seas, or at least stop being quite so boring.
We cast off last Tuesday learning WIMBA live classroom and creating our own avatar using Voki. Next order of business is this blog, a profile, and a contract.
I'm also mulling over ways IT can help me maximize classroom time by allowing me to shift some face-time tasks like checking homework and providing notes onto the web.
