From the beginning of this course I have focused on how to involve parents in my classroom through the use of a website, as well as how I can be involved in professional development. I feel that I have made much progress through these goals and my GAME plan. My GAME plan will be used to help my students in many ways. By involving parents in my classroom through our classroom website, I am helping students to have the tools they need to be successful. Students will get used to using technology to help with their homework and skill practice. It will also allow parents to see what is going on in the classroom and be involved in their student’s learning.
In addition to this, I want to attend or be involved in technology professional development opportunities. By doing this, I am helping my students as well because I will be bringing to them what I have learned in these conferences. I want to continue my learning in the area of technology so that I am teaching my students with the most up to date information possible.
Through this process I have been reminded that it is so important to be a reflective teacher. I want to continually reflect upon my teaching and how I can better myself. By doing this, I am doing what is best for my students. I want my students to be 21st century learners and be motivated to learn.
