Twitter

So I am writing this the day after I tweeted for the very first time, I used a hashtag and all!  Twitter was starting to become popular during my first time in college.  Just like blogging, I didn’t think that I had anything worth saying.  It was not a decision that I took lightly, signing up for Twitter, but I am so glad that I did.  I have not been an avid user, but ever since signing up I have found so many great ideas on there!  Twitter is one technology that I want to try out this semester, and be better at.  I will casually look at it now but I know I am not using it to its full potential.  I think that Twitter will also be a great addition to my classroom someday.

The Beginning

If you would have asked me if I ever thought that I would blog in my lifetime, I would have definitely laughed at that question, and said no.  I have never thought I had anything interesting enough to say and that people would listen (or read).  This if for sure pushing me out of my comfort zone but I will give it a try!  This semester I would just like to be  more comfortable with technology.  Before taking education media applications, I was unsure  on my feelings on using technology in the classroom.  Someday, I hope to be an elementary teacher and I didn’t know how you could use technology successfully with younger students.  This class is definitely making me think outside of the box, in a very good way! I hope to take all the information that I learn in education media applications to my classroom someday.  I absolutely think that my students will benefit because of it.
