What do I want to get out this course? What are my goals?

This year my personal goal is to use technology in an EFFECTIVE AND EFFICIENT way to observe and document what my students are learning. I want this course to assist me in reaching this goal by:

– helping me develop my general technology skills and therefore be more EFFECTIVE
– providing opportunities to practice my video making skills so I can be more EFFICIENT in sharing learning with children and families
– finding new ways to document the learning in my classroom so I can be more EFFECTIVE
– practicing blogging skills so I am more EFFECTIVE and EFFICIENT
I can’t wait to get started!
