Ms Cassidy's Classroom"
Ms. Cassidy is a first grade teacher in Canada. Her first grade students are astounding. They are amazing on computers and especially the internet. She is teaching them how to use technology effectively instead of using the internet just for social media. I respect her for teaching these kids, at such a young age, how to use technology. I really believe in technology in the classroom. Her children are on the same level as some of my peers and myself. She shows them how to use the blog sites, classroom website, and Wikis. I'm still not even sure what a Wiki is. These children are using the blogs as ways of communication and they are learning writing, audio, and visual skills.
She tells us that the students love to use the blogs because they get feedback from all over the world and having an audience other than your teacher is a very exciting thing, especially when you're in the first grade. Honestly, I wish I had a technology class, such as EDM 310, in high-school because when I got into this class I was very lost. But with some self- teaching and self-learning I believe I am doing very well. The only downfall to technology would probably be that sometimes it isn't reliable. Just like our bodies they can shut down for no reason at all. I agree to using technology in the classroom and I respect Ms. Cassidy for proving all her peers wrong.
