Tool # 11

What are your favorite tools you now have in your personal technology toolbox? Briefly describe a particular activity that you will plan for your students using at least one of these new tools.
I like the newly discovered app 'CoverItLive' and can see many uses for it in any classroom.

2. How have you transformed your thinking about the learning that will take place in your classroom? How has your vision for your classroom changed? Are you going to need to make any changes to your classroom to accommodate the 21st Century learner?
I have thought about some of the tools that I have not used because they are not applicable to the job I have now and will certainly take them to my staff and work with them to add in their classrooms. Of course, my vision has evolved and has become more refined every time I use a new app or application. I see the world through a different set of eyes because many of those 21st Century skills require you to look at things differently or they are not as effective.

3. Were there any unexpected outcomes from this program that surprised you?
I did not expect to disagree with as many of the 'correct' answers on the final assessment as I did. Technology and acquiring 212st Century skills are, in my opinion, not as black and white as the assessment made them to be. i have changed my poiny of view on several topics after researching some of the answers given. That'a a good thing!!!


  1. I thought the same thing about the assessment! I like things that make me think about my point of view! You finished - way to go Kathy!

  2. Congrats on completing your 11 tools blog!

  3. Congrats-I haven't taken the assessment yet. Atomic Learning is not my friend. You are scaring me:)
