Teacher Tech in the classroom...

Alright Jennifer, from Rowdy in First Grade, and Greg, from Kindergarten Smorgasbord, did it... They convinced me to sign up. Ok, here it is. Because I have very little life now and I know that social networks would take up the little I have left for myself I have maken a conscious effort to stay away from them. That is right, no FB, no Twitter, no Pintrest. You read that right I am NOT on Pintrest. I do occasionally go on there and search my fav bloggers pins, but I myself don't have an account.

I do however have a personal Instagram account and just LOVE it. I love making all my pictures look fancy and what not. So when I saw Jennifer's and Greg's posts about using Instagram in their classrooms you know I was so there.

I also remembered a post of Greg's where he was talking about Tweeting out what his kids learned every day. I was so there too!

Today I did it, I set up two accounts. My Instagram handel is msk1ell and my Twitter tag is @MsK1ELL. So go ahead and...

Ok, I do have another social Network I do want to share, but I plan to post about it on Resource Thursday. Have you heard of Edmodo?
Come back Thursday to read about how a colleague is using this FB like, secure, social network with her ELL kids.

Now I will cross my fingers and hope that I don't get my Instagram accounts all mixed up.
Have a great weekend!


  1. Can't wait to read about Edmodo. I've signed up but need a tutorial on how to maximize its use.

    1. I've been trying to share with you all forever now. Glad I am going to finally squeeze it in.

  2. I am so with you on the social networking--I had to take a step back last year because I felt completely overwhelmed. I love the idea of using Instagram in in class--so smart!

    In other news...Downton will be coming back before we know it, right??? ;)


Thanks for the comment. Please come back again.
