I made a fake site for the final project in my education class. I think that I am really happy how it turned out!!!
As the Semester is coming to a close I am realizing that I have learned a eat deal what t is to be a teacher. I have learned that teachers have a great deal at their disposal now that wasn’t available even as early as 10years ago. Technology has come so far in such a short period of time .That fact both amazes, and entices me. I am looking forward to seeing what the future has in store as far as the technology that will be used to teach the future generations. I may be going out on a limb when I say this , but I truly believe that, based on the knowledge gained from this class. Those that are proficient in technology will be successful and those that are not will be left by the wayside. I have had the pleasure of seeing a definite shift in technology being used in everyday life, now I feel that the more tech that is being integrated into the school system, the more that our future will benefit from it. In short technology was originally a tool to make the complicated simple. However it is now some thin that has become essential.
This week in class we learned about how to create a rubric and a little about assessments and the grading system. I cant wait until i have the opportunity to teach children things that they will take and build upon for their future. I remember when I was young and I would go to a class that I was really excited about. I would think about it the night before and ponder as to what the day would hold for me….. I think that teaching is really the profession that I am intended to pursue!!! Here is the rubric that I created …
Today on my online class I had to create an online scavenger hunt. I enjoyed this althought I had to rack my brain to find a topic…..ha ha OK, that was an intended pun…. Here is what I came up with .

This week in my intro to educational technology class we are doing a project where we will design an innovative school based on what we have learned in the course so far! I am so excited to do this because design and crafting is my thing…. I started sketching last night and it opened up a whole world of possibilities! My biggest goal is going to be to just do what the assignment asks and get it done in time ….
I wonder if there will be extra credit if I add glitter.
