Why do you make an excellent "Tech Ninja"?
I would make an excellent Tech Ninja because I am always on the lookout for great new tech tools to help enhance the learning of my students.
What are some of your favorite Web 2.0 tools, and why?
Although I have used many great tools over the years, I am currently super excited about using My Big Campus with my students. MBC gives my students an online platform to do so many things. Students can complete assignments, turn in assignments, blog, discuss topics online, and collaborate on documents.
Why is technology important in education?
Technology is important in education because our world revolves around technology and being instantaneously connect to others. Our students are growing up in this world and don't know any different. Therefore, we need to meet the kids where they are, which will increase engagement.
