Posted by EVA HARVELL

I am part of a online class about using web 2.0 in the classroom.  I am enjoying reading about everyone’s thoughts, successes, and concerns about web 2.0 in their classroom come August.

training outside PSD

Posted by EVA HARVELL

Earlier this week, I was asked to train at an independent school in Jackson, MS.  I was (and still am) very excited about the opportunity to train and talk to others about using technology in the classrooms!

Thanks to MECA .. I’m doing my first technology presentation for another district!

more summer reading

Posted by EVA HARVELL

So I’ve been thinking some more about what I want to read over the summer.  I have added a view books to my list…

– Using Technology With Classroom Instruction That Works

– Blogs, Wikis, Podcasts, and Other Powerful Web Tools

– Teaching With Technology: Creating Student-Centered Classrooms

– Connecting Curriculum and Technology

I don’t know if I will be able to get all of these purchased and read in June and July, but it’s worth a try!

summer reading

Posted by EVA HARVELL

With 17 more days left in school, I am starting to think about my summer reading list.  This summer, college books will be a top priority!  I think I’m going to also add Engaging the Eye Generation.  I’ve read the first two chapters online, and I’m liking it so far.

I wonder if I will have time for any other books?

Where do I start?

Posted by EVA HARVELL

As an educator, we have so much technology available at our fingertips!  Websites, interactive devices, blogs, computers .. the list is large.  The biggest frustration teachers have (myself included) is where do I start!  Where in this large list of “stuff” do I need to begin to find what I need and what my students need.

I hope through reading educator blogs and blogging myself I can find where to start to myself and help others find their starting point as well!
