Some of the discussions that have taken place in class have been very valuable. Something that has stood out in my mind is that teachers must be experts in so many areas, including technology. Since so many schools have different technologies available in the classrooms, it is difficult to teach the students, when in reality, I do not know if they will have access to the technologies I am introducing in the class. I am challenged, as the instructor, to have more knowledge and experience than the students.
I hope I will be able to continue to learn, and teach on a level that will challenge and motivate the students.

I am currently teaching, Teaching and Learning with Technology, at a Community College. Today I am teaching the students how to set up a Blog to use in the classroom. This class has been so refreshing and exhilarating for me! In order for technology to be advantageous in education it must benefit the children or the teachers. I believe creating a blog can enhance the knowledge of the teachers through networking with other educators, parents, as well as give them a link to a global community.
