I've been bouncing around today from blog to blog - keeping it all separate. What do I mean, you ask? Weeellll..... I've got this blog, I've got a student blog, and I've got a parent blog. And the school sponsored website that needs to be maintained and the wiki I've been experimenting on with my class, and I'm feeling a little bit technologically divided.
There are good reasons everything is separate. This is my spot to be me, just me, the non-teaching part of me. My student blog is for fun stuff that they might enjoy and a spot for some literature response homework. My parent blog is a spot for weekly news and other info that needs to go home because the school website is not the easiest to work with. The school sponsored site has to be there and I've now made it virtually needless to update that - my homepage there is just a bunch of links to other places!
And the wiki is a work in progress - I've actually got to type up some directions for my students this weekend so that hopefully they can do some things without having to have me standing right next to them. It's been fun but also challenging to incorporate all of this technology - plus the mobile laptop lab and the smart boards at school! It's one of my goals for this year - I'll keep you posted on how it's going for me.
