Reflection on Skype with Mrs. Mimi
I really enjoyed our Skype with Mrs. Mimi. She is passionate and energetic. I am currently working in the school as a teachers aide and I agree with most of what she says. I work in the Special Ed. room and we do not use technology very much. Sometimes we don't use the Smart board all week and when we do use the Smart board it is usually to show multiplication videos to the students. We have been using School House Rock. The kids really like it. I agree with Mrs. Mimi when she says teachers have so much to do all day that it is hard to find time to learn how to integrate technology into your lesson plans. I think a teacher has to have a great interest or passion in technology to make the time to learn new how to use it more. Otherwise it is so overwhelming that they don't know where to start. That is actually were I fit in, but I think this class is really going to help with that. I am doing more on the computer now than I ever did. I am excited to learn as much as I can.
