EdTech 541: Integrating Technology into Classroom Curriculum

I am so excited to be taking this course! Today, I explored Weebly, and began creating my own web page for this course. I really enjoyed how easy the site was to navigate and all the options that are available. My goal for the next school year is to create a class website. Wix and Weebly will definitely be my top choices as web platforms! Check out my course website here.

As a marketing teacher, I am always looking for new and fun ways to integrate technology into the classroom. Our assignment for this week was to create an I Am poem using the provided format and then add and image that symbolizes us. I liked this assignment a lot and appreciated the freedom to express oneself. It was fun to get to know my classmates by reading their poems as well. This would be a great intro activity for high school students and incorporates technology well. Below is my I Am poem. Looking forward to an awesome semester!

EdTech506: Final Project/Reflection

Graphic Design for Learning has been one of my favorite classes so far in the EdTech program! I really enjoyed learning about and how to use different graphic design principles. The final project was intense, but I am pleased with the final result. I chose to create a lesson that was about The World of Marketing. For this lesson, I used several images that I created throughout the semester and also incorporated similar assignments for my students. I now have a better understanding of how to use Adobe Fireworks and Piktochart. For my lesson, I chose to use the website generator Wix. This was a very easy interface to use and I plan to use this site to make a class webpage in the future. Click here to see The World of Marketing lesson plan!
