I am not a techie person. Creating this blog was a small miracle for me. I find technology in my classroom is oftentimes daunting and seeing what other teachers are able to accomplish in what seems a little amount of time is quite exhausting to even imagine (even though I am secretly envious).
I don’t like to use age as a factor. My mind just doesn’t seem to find it easy to follow the path to accomplish these tasks without writing down every step. And getting it wrong takes me through what seems a labyrinth to find my way back or to the “fix.”
But be that as it may, I was still asked to be one of ten eductors in our building to go to a technology conference the next two days. Believe me, it was NOT because I do anything outstanding with technology! We were chosen for our different levels of experience. I told my students they chose me from the bottom of the barrel. A bottom feeder! They laughed…
But to be honest, I am looking forward to at least the first day although with some trepidation. I’ve looked through and highlighted several workshops that sound promising. I read them and imagine myself accomplishing great things! I read them and imagine myself as “that” teacher. You know the one.
So with a great attitude, my iPad, and a list of learning opportunities, I am headed into the world of technology! My head is already swirling!
