Continuing My GAME Plan
As I continue on with my GAME plan I need to develop a list of websites which have current event information. Some of these websites will be news websites on a local, state and national level. Other websites I will add to my list are science and environmental websites such as NASA and EPA. I currently have these websites bookmarked on my computer in my classroom and at home but I need to have them on a flash drive so they are with me where ever I am. Another step I need to take is to locate the names of people involved with our local and state government who deal with environmental issues. I know I can locate some of them on our county website but I need to find other sites where I can find the information I need. The third thing I need to do is to become more familiar with presentation tools such as podcasts or video streaming. I am currently enrolled in a professional development class about podcasting. I have used podcasting once but am not really comfortable with using it with my class until I have more training so I am looking forward to this class. Anytime there is a professional development class dealing with technology in our school district I try to take it because the more proficient I am with multiple media modalities the more helpful it will be for my students.
