TAG! You’re it!!
I was scrolling back through a week of Twitters tonight when I discovered that I’d missed a tweet from fellow ITRT, Tina Coffey. Tina tagged me with a meme…a Passion Quilt. By accepting the meme, I need to share why I’m passionate about teaching with technology. I also need to add an image that captures my passion.
Like my friend, Tina, I’ve struggled with narrowing my focus to just one reason that I’m passionate about technology as an avenue to learning. Technology opens doors and it certainly levels the playing field for learners everywhere, but what I love best about technology is that it allows me to bring another passion of mine into the classroom from anywhere in the world.
So I’ve chosen this image, one that my husband snapped on the reefs of Cozumel in 2005. It is one of many images available on my flickr site. The title I give it is “Seeing What Is.”
I love that I can use technology to bring the ocean to my students in a very real way. I love that I can give my students a “fish-eye view” of the world beneath the waves. I hope that it also inspires them to express and share their own passions. And while using technology to learn about the ocean environment is certainly not the only trick up my sleeve, it is by far, my very favorite.
And so, I pass on the passion with a little Meme toss of my own!
The rules are simple:
The Meme toss goes to:
- Thom Ryder -http://www.newt9.blogspot.com/
- Melanie Lewis – http://melanielewis.edublogs.org/
I know I’m supposed to share with five, but I’ll have to get some Blog addresses at VSTE this week and toss to the rest. Tina swooped most of the bloggers I know, so I’ll have to find a few others.
