Welcome to Ideas for Integrating Technology

My name is Tammy B. and I an Instructional Technology Specialist at The Children's School in Midtown Atlanta.  I have been in my current position for 3 years and previously I was a lead classroom teacher in second grade at The Children's School.  As a part of my PLN I enjoy reading Twitter, sharing my thoughts and ideas and asking questions.  Twitter is the best way to find a developer and their responses are always prompt. FaceBook is also part of my PLN. There are so many educators that share ideas.  Reading Facebook is always inspiring.  I also follow a few blogs.  Blogs are a great way to know what is trending. My PLN islikje reading the morning paper except my PLN never sleeps. Many of the ideas I share with my colleagues and others I tuck away in my Evernote account.  It occurred to me that I could share what I am learning with other educators and hopefully they will share their ideas. I am always searching for Web 2.0 tools that foster collaboration, critical thinking, creativity, and communication.  I also enjoy reading, sharing, and evaluating educational and productivity apps. Why?  Because all students learn differently and I want to offer a selection of apps instead of just one. Please follow and comment on the blog and on twitter @tcsteacher.
