Welcome to my new writing space.

I created this teaching related blog as a means of bridging a gap. A technology gap that exists between students and teachers. Most students attending elementary school know more about web tools than their teachers.  I found this to be true when I began to ask my preservice teachers if they were familiar with Twitter, Blogs and Wikis.  I was met with many blank stares. Thus, this blog was created to bridge the gap and help new teachers to see the many advantages web tools can offer. 

The best way for me to do this is to begin blogging with my own students, my preservice teachers. I first had to learn about blogging and visit some blogs myself. I started small, leaving comments on several blogs. Then I began the real work creating my own blog. This is a work in progress, but one that I hope many preservice teachers will find helpful.

I welcome students, teachers, and anyone else to add comments to anything I write here. To teach is to learn. A teacher must constantly learn the content what he or she teaches, how to improve his or her teachings, and especially how best to facilitate learning in his or her students. This – and I cannot stress it enough – involves learning about each student as an individual.

I hope you’ll join me in this exercise of learning.
