I can't wait to get back to the classroom!

It's amazing to me how much information can be crammed into three days. The Global Learners training has been incredibly valuable. I just hope I can remember how to use everything once I get home (and get the technology in some cases.) My favorite part about today was learning all of the cool things our SmartBoards can do. I'm super psyched to get back in my classroom and use it with my students. Crazy, right? Wanting to get back into the classroom? I do, however, look forward to developing and becoming proficient in Wikis, blogs and SmartBoard tools this summer so I'm prepared for the new year.

Being a Global Learner is an amazing opportunity that I feel fortunate to be a part of. I predict my students will be more engaged and learn a lot more next year because of the technology training I've been receiving. I can't wait to get rid of my overhead (and "overhead hand" as I like to call it) and use my projector on a daily basis without having to check one out. Have a great rest of your summer everybody!

You don't have to remember EVERYTHING. Enjoy your summer and take the time to play with some of these great tools. If you enjoy using them, then you will find an appropriate place to use them in your teaching.
