I'm in Graduate School!


This has been a super busy summer! Although, I have neglected my blog, I am not going away!  I am currently enrolled in graduate school at The University of Alabama to obtain an M.A. in Educational Leadership.  This has been such a rewarding experience thus far.  However, I never knew a person could read and write so much!  All my free time is spent on homework.  This process is making me rethink things I do with my students and my faculty.  I'll definitely be sharing some of these things with you once I have a few extra minutes to blog.  For now, I've got to get back to studying!

Integrating Technology into Your Classroom


In April, I had the amazing opportunity to be a part of the Everything's Intermediate Virtual Teaching Expo sponsored by Teaching Blog Addict and Teacher's Notebook.  During my presentation, I had the opportunity to share with you how to effectively integrate technology into your classroom and introduced you to a dozen or so free webtools.  I also provided actual examples of my students' creations.

Now, the presentation is available on Teacher's Notebook for only $3.95. Yes, $3.95! Once you have viewed the presentation, feel free to question or comment {here}.


Happy learning!

Save Time with JogNog's New Version


JogNog has recently upgraded to a new version.


The newest feature of the site is called Quick Quiz which you can use to create totally free quizzes. You can create an online quiz or review game in three easy steps.  They say easy, and I mean easy.






You can choose questions from their library of over 20,000, or you can write your own questions.  Once you have created your quiz, you can then provide your students with a secret code to the quiz.  After completion, you have a custom review game or quiz because you can access the results through a report.


All you need to do to begin is to create a FREE account on JogNog.  Once you are logged in, go to the DESIGN tab.


Feel free to leave me any comments or questions you have about Quick Quiz.  I'll be happy to answer them.


Happy quiz creating!
