Well, this is news to me: I can have a website without paying for the url space.  Um, YES PLEASE!  This is a really great concept that I am really looking forward to playing around on.  It's so great that I can actually have a professionally looking site at my fingertips for nothing other than my own effort and time.  That makes me want to start doing more online, maybe even making a web-comic for teachers! *Gasp!* Seriously though, this is a fantastic tool, and in reality levels the playing field quite well.  I'm excited to use it more, and can't wait to see the full potential of this site.

I'm also really glad we had that discussion today about the direction of the class.  Things have been a bit ambiguous about what the purpose is within the classroom.  I knew that this was an Ed-Tech class, but the reasons behind what we were doing seemed very ambiguous and vague.  I was really unsure about the podcast, about the content and about what I could and could not do.  But I went ahead and took a stab at it, and it wasn't even the editing that I needed to work on, it was my own word choice and recording of the audio in the first place.  It's good to know that we can have these kind of discussions as adults to figure out where we are and where we need to be.  I just wish that we didn't have to take so much time out from today to do it, but it needed to be done.  Other than that, I really have very little to say.  Goodnight all, and sweet dreams!

  1. Oh please, Matt, you're killing me with the (not so) funny cats reference. I think that the website is, by far, the most important technological thing (for lack of a better word) that a teacher can bring to into the classroom. It can put all of the resources at the students' fingertips, allow for discussion outside the classroom and bring the students together. It's great.
