I chose my blog site as my main way to keep in touch with the teaching world and to learn about what other teachers are doing. I choose this because it allows me to see many different teacher blogs and keep track of all of them in one place. Their are many different blogs that teachers use and they provide a personal perspective of their own classroom. Which is helpful to a teacher in training like myself. These are a few helpful blogs that I found.

This activity was a group of people exploring a communication tool while only being able to communicate online. The tool that our group explored is edmodo.
This website is basically a twitter or facebook for educational purposes. Teachers and students can both sign up for an account. Teachers can post assignments for both students and parents and students can post feedback on things that they do or don't understand.
An example of how it can be used is if you have a spelling assignment for your class you can post it to edmodo and there parents can access it at home and know exactly what they are supposed to do for homework.
