SPED 432 by Gina Witt
First, I have learned to take education to the next level by using Open Education, Creative Commons, and Learning Management Systems.
Online tools have been used by students for years, and now we can funnel that creativity towards the areas that we want them to focus on.
Creative Learning Environments
This is a way for students to express their creativeness while promoting active learning. This makes learning and teaching fun for everyone.
I can't wait to get started!! The time is now....and it will be wonderful!!
The light bulb is finally turned on to new ideas!
I am excited to incorporate the many ideas and strategies for reading, spelling, handwriting, and mathematics that can help students improve their fundamental skills. There are so many interactive ideas that we can utilize. I have started using these different resources in my classroom already.
When can it be used?
These strategies can be used everyday with all students in the classroom, at home, and even on the bus. Students can use their laptops, I-pads, I-pods, tablets or smart phones. This is the new learning environment!
Use your resources and excel. When students are challenged and doing what they are good at and enjoy, their behavior, emotional, and social develops more positively. This is great news!!
Log in to Canvas for an updated assignment!!
I have learned that using student's knowledge of technology can propel their education into the future. As a teacher, I need to prepare myself so that my students receive the best opportunities.
