Well, we have officially completed 5 days of school and I am so happy to say that I seriously have a REMARKABLE group of students. I'm not just saying that. We started using the iPads on Friday and the learning curve this year is incredible. Each of my students has quickly picked up on the skills they need to successfully use the iPad as a learning tool. I am so excited to see where this year will take us.
One new adventure we are embarking on this year is student blogs. Each student has his or her own webpage hosted by Weebly, which includes a home page and an individual blog. There is a Weebly app that students are using on their iPads to create new posts on their sites. The app is very user friendly which has made it easy for the students to experience success! They have already been able to post twice to their blogs and many of them have been able to access their sites at home. Please be on the lookout to see what new and exciting things are to come in our class this year!
My name is Carrie Gaffney. Someone once asked me a question that remains in the back of my mind and helps to shape my life: "How will you be remarkable?" I am continuously trying to discover new ways to answer that question.
