Teaching since Fall 2001 – 3rd year in 2nd grade

Working with Administration

I was reading A History Teacher and 2 cents worth today. It sparked some thinking.

Ms. J came to me a couple of weeks ago with a Holidays Around the World activity. I couldn’t help but think it would be a great Wiki – but we are prohibited from allowing the kids to use email, or chat – blogs and Wiki are not mentioned only because they were not around when the AUP was written. Not that it matters because they are blocked.

I thinking baby steps. The district is pushing distance learning. So maybe we could come up with a Distance Learning activity that included a Wiki and get it unblocked for that. Start with our partner school – move on to more schools.

 My kids don’t have access at home – I want to make sure they know how to safely use these tools.
