I love collaborating with teachers in my school and people who are not at my school. My first teaching job had at least five teachers per grade level, so we were able to "share our wealth." I have always loved to go to trainings in the summer and during the year and I have gotten ideas to bring into my classroom. There are face-to-face networks and then there also is networks where you can find on the internet. Seesaw- This is a digital portfolio which allows students to have voice in their products that they do during the year. Seesaw is one of my networks because I am able to connect with people on Facebook (through Seesaw Teachers and of course, Seesaw Teachers: First Grade . I know there are other grade levels and subject areas for other subjects. Also, Seesaw has something called PD in your PJs during the year where they have teachers present sessions like app smashing, cloning yourself, and how to incorporate Seesaw with the areas. Twitter (@Seesaw) also lets us chat with other teachers (#SeesawChat.) Facebook- This is a wonderful learning network because there is so many groups on it. Here are two of my favorite groups, but there are so many more:
Teach with Tech- this group actually had a On-line Technology Conference in July. The other teachers are so passionate about technology and they make me want to learn more about different programs.
Teachers Using Google Classroom
Twitter- I never thought I would really be involved with twitter, but this is a great way to chat with other teachers across the world in the #Twitter Chats. These are some of my favorite Twitter gotos:
The three ladies that created the Teach with Tech Facebook group page are @StudyAllKnight, @erintegration, @JGTechieTeacher
@DoinkTweets- green screen app that has so many ideas to use in the classroom
