    Rats, I thought my post was up here after the inservice, but it seems to have disappeared. Ah, technology.

    1) I've been using a wiki for posting assignments and due dates for last few years. SJHS also uses a wiki for school-wide announcements instead of email or PA system.

    I would maybe use a class wiki for the discussion forum because some students might feel more comfortable posting their thoughts as opposed to speaking aloud in class.

    2) We are going to have a lunch session on Audacity in the new year, now that we have mics and headphones!

    3) I'm not sure how I'd use ePearl in my class... maybe for a Science research project?

    1. Honestly, using a wiki in grade one as a collaborative tool would be a bit overwhelming for my students. I could see using it as an electronic newsletter to parents, but again, it's finding the time to do this. I guess the more familiar I get with the program the quicker it would be to use.
    2. As far as using technology with my class, my students are getting more comfortable with logging in independently as well as getting familiar with Tux Paint. I integrated our school-wide numeracy theme last month and had them type a sentence in Tux Paint and pasted images to go with it. They really enjoyed it and being able to print their work.
    3. At this point in time, I don't see E-Pearl being very effective in grade one.

    1. I think for myself I will not use wikis in my grade one class. I have too many other really good programs that work easier. I will help my grade 4 teachers set up theirs.
    2. I was able to use scholastic keys and make some really good books that the children shared.
    3. Again with grade one I can't see myself using epearl but I can see how good it would be for research projects.

    1. I think wikis could be very useful in the classroom. Just a little time consuming getting it started.
    2. We are currently typing out our autobiographies on word and inserting photos. I am looking forward to having our grade 6 buddies help us with audacity.
    3. ePearl looks great and I like that it includes all of the lwict

    1. I would use wikis as a communication tool between home and school. I like the idea of posting student work so parents can see what they are doing. As a grade 2 teacher, I think it would be difficult to use together with students adding work.

    2. Successes so far have been just getting the students familiar with using the outbox and where to click and enter information. I would like to use audacity in the future- maybe later in the year.

    3. I don't think I would use e-Pearl- I think it is still a bit complicated for grade 2. They have a hard time with the literacy part of using computers, so I think that it would be hard for them to use it independently.

    2. I am excited about using photography with my gr. 1 class. We are studying the 5 senses in Science and are getting the students to take pictures of things they can smell, taste, touch, see and hear. I am going to load the pictures onto photostory and have students record thier voices about the picture that they took. Ex. I use my sense of smell to smell my sandwich.

    3. I think I have a lot to learn about e-pearl before I would be comfortable using it.
