    I do plan on using technology in my classroom, but besides the basic SmartBoard type of applications I am not sure how much I will be able to incorporate. Much of that will determine the SES of the overall class and the available technology funds in the district. I would not want to include a lot of it if it creates an unfair advantage in the classroom for certain students. I am excited about the progression of technology in the classroom and hope to eventually be part of the process that helps create new tools for students and teachers to use in the class.

    I think that future classes should be exposed to the program Work Keys SC that helps students transition into the job field.

    Wikis in Special Education
    If it was appropriate for the lesson being taught and the level of the class then I could see the benefit of incorporating this into the class. I would see myself using this more as a tool for me to make announcements to my class and parents that they could check on at home. High school students would be more quick to use this, but may cause frustrations if they are not proficient at typing.

    I have really enjoyed this class because it has taught us non-conventional ways to use technology that we are already familiar with as well as teaching us new technologies, both complex and simple, that will help us in our classrooms. Particularly being in a classroom that uses a Promethean Board every day, I have realized how much the field of technology is growing for both teachers and students. I feel that I will use a lot of what we learned this semester in both my student teaching and my own classroom. Everything from the motivational posters to the graphing of data I think will be highly beneficial to know how to do.

    I will definitely use technology in my future classroom. I have been in classrooms where teachers don't even know how to use the Smart-Boards and I think the lessons lack because of this. I plan on using as much as possible because the students seem to really like it, and learn more from the lessons. I learned a lot more about technology from this class, and I will use the graphs to help monitor my students progress.

    This class has really opened my eyes to new and available technologies for the classroom. There are many programs that I was unaware of before this class, including Wordle, Doodle, and wikis. It has been helpful to use the wiki in class. I was familiar with the idea of wikis, however, this class has taught me how to use one and given me some ideas regarding how to use a wiki within the classroom and target it toward students. It was nice to learn more about the SmartBoard technology and be able to apply it during my practicum experience. I also struggle with using Microsoft Excel. I found this class very helpful in learning how to graph in Excel, which will be necessary in order to use progress monitoring in my future classroom.

    Wikis in Special Education
    Wikis would be a very useful tool within the classroom. Older students in particular could develop technology skills, writing skills, and functional/independent living skills. Learning to use a Wiki would teach students how to use technology for communication, academic, and organizational purposes. I'm not sure this would be such a good tool for younger students. But it would be great for older students to blog, respond to forums, share information, etc.

    I hope to use the technology learned in this class in my classroom next year as well as applications and programs that would benefit me in the future. I would really like to learn how to use the Promethean boards for my field experience this semester. I am really excited about this class because it is going to be fun and enjoyable as well as a learning experience.
    I have learned how to do many things with this technology class. I love the programs on the internet that we could use for vocabulary words (Wordle, to the right) and learning how to do our CBM graphs. I will definitely use the knowledge I learned on the CBM and FBA graphs to use in my classroom.
    I suggest get more Promethean boards. Pickens County Schol District uses them (I'm a pro at it now!) Have the iclickers and show how they work more.

    The use of technology is very important in classrooms. I have learned a great deal about smartboards and other creative and useful ways to encorporate technology into the classroom. Some of the things we have talked about that I can see myself using in the classroom is the wordle website and doodle.com. These are two websites I had never heard of or scene before and they are great resources to use in the classroom. Through this technology class I have learned about different resources that can be used in the classroom to help foster education with the use of techonology. I have enjoyed learned about these resources and see myself using them in the future.
