1. My favorite tools are embedding videos, making the Mixbook photo album and getting more comfortable with blogging in general. I will definitely use this blog as an opportunity to connect more with my students and their parents.
2. I am not sure my thinking has been transformed as I have always been a fan and somewhat proficient with technology. I think what I am most excited about is having the devices (computer, iPads, etc) available to help the kids and teachers become more tech savy. This is definitely our future so I am excited to be a part of it.
3. Some of the tools that I thought would be easy were more time consuming and frustrating (embedding videos), but once I figured it out, they were all pretty easy. I think next time I use these tools I will have an easier go of it.
