Integrating the Australian Curriculum Using Web2.0
 
Picture
Thinking seriously about my responsibilities over the coming months, I have begun to plan which tools I will use in my classroom. This is difficult work as there is such a plethora of resources I want to try but deep down I know that only a few will work and in my 'green' state it is probably not the greatest idea to be using everything. Hence I have decided that I will try and use Edmodo in the classroom. This will be used mainly during our ICT times (3 times a week) and for home time as I only have the one computer in my classroom connected to the smart board. Edmodo is a great resource as it works just like facebook with  heightened safety precautions and the ability for students to submit work. 

Edmodo will be used for students to ask questions, raise concerns, work on group assignments, collect data and hand in work. This will be closely paired with student blogs so students will be able to publish their work to the wider public. I am very excited to be talking to a fellow class blogger this week where I will have the opportunity to ask him about how to set up the class blog and how it will work . Some other great resources I am looking forward to using are Jaycut and Aviary which will allow students to create videos and multimedia projects online without relying on the software packages in school.

    This blog is that of a very confused, bewildered and amazed new scheme teacher in Sydney Australia who is hoping with all his might that he doesn't fall on his face. Enjoy!
