OK so I created my website and I am really happy with its presentation. I have found that the website provides me with options that the wiki and blog do not. The website allows me to add resources that I want my student to access that they may not be able to access due to school security restrictions (i.e. YouTube clips). By embedding these into my my webpage the student can access my webpage and therefore view these very useful YouTube clips. While I think the wiki, blog and website each has its place in learning, I decided to focus my attention on the website. The website that I have created is really storage for my resources that I want my student to access. I have sorted this website into the areas that I teach and have embedded links to excellent websites such as NASA’s astronomical website for interactive learning and math questions.
I have included direct links to blogs or articles specifically dealing with our unit of inquiry on plants. While I have decided to focus my time and attention on my Webpage, as this is the most useful application for my pedagogy at the current time. I have also created a Wiki and a Blog. I decide not to focus all of my attention on the wiki as I felt that this would not be the best program to use for the purpose I had in mind. I created my webpage as a storage system for all of the wonderful resources that I am discovering but had no where to combine and develop. The creation of my blog gave me the platform to begin reflecting on my experiences and on the activities I was undertaking. My blog was essential for my learning as this is where I have completed all of my reflections on the activities undertaken blog. I understand the importance of reflecting as both a learner and a teacher. It is important for teachers to not only reflect on their own practice but to reflect on their student learning and to what level this is being achieved. The Blog is what you are seeing now, I have included a Voki, Photos, all of my responses to the weekly activities and assessment 2. Some interesting resources and a cartoon.
