Having said this, I did not know the extent to how valuable technology can be. For instance, I was under the impression that social networking sites would be a hindrance in the classroom. However after this assignment I have realized that a site such as twitter can act as an exit slip for students. Furthermore, I was always against the idea of texting in classes. However now that I am more aware of online poles which can exist through texting I realized that it may be an anonymous method to incorporate feed back of the students. It also removes the stigma that students may have when they have to raise their hand to answer a question, since they are forced to text while everyone is texting.
In my future teaching career, I will use these technology resources to form a more interactive classroom. In addition, by doing this it also capitalizes on students ability to use technology to aid in their learning.
