TOOL # 11: Self Assessing and Reflecting

My favorite tools are BrainPop, Learning Games for Kids, Discovery Learning. I will use YouTube or Edutube as the set for my lesson plans. I can find boxers and other athletes jumping rope when I want to show how jump rope is used as a way to get physically fit and not just a recess game.
My thinking has changed since I have been using web 2.0 tools. This 11 tools training has definitely increased by confidence as far as trying new technology with my students. I see how important it is to help our students use multiple devices/tools to engage them in learning, real-world learning. I will now add the netbooks and ipods to my stations and in my lesson plans I will incorporate technology.
 I loved the hands on format and I was surprised and grateful that we were taught these tools by actually getting a change to use them. In addition, I am excited to be able to use Atomic Learning
tutorials and to know that we will get staff development credit at the same time. WOW!


  1. Congratulations! You are finished! I hope you learned tons of helpful things and are ready to put them to use!

  2. I agree with you that Atomic Learning is a great resource for learning new tools.
