The first thing I realized is that it is very difficult for me to write in 100 words or less. I had to start by shortening all of my annotations. I appreciate more of an organized collaboration, but it worked well being able to access/edit work when it was convenient for my schedule. The cool part about the collaborated annotated bibliography is that even though we have an underlying thread, because of individual interest, content area or use of technology in our professional lives we have a wide variety of different articles or approaches in using tech in education. I wanted to focus on how to use it in my individual classroom so I focused on what was available for my U.S. History classroom, use of tablets as our school has just switched from computers to tablets and using the flipped classroom model. All of which is applicable to me right now. I appreciated the articles focusing on the different major trends in ed technology, research for emerging tools use in the classroom. I would like to continue it improve my use of technology in my classroom. After completing this assignment I realized that before implementation, the best thing to do is research which emerging tools are effectively used and implemented right now. In the article, Teaching and learning with mobile technology: A qualitative explorative study about the introduction of tablet devices in secondary education, that I am still using technology in my classroom as a replacement tool for all of the wasted paper and not really changing or innovating my instruction with its use. It makes me very interested in actually changing my instruction and use of technology to leave the space of just using it as a replacement tool. I thought the wide variety of article choices really allow me to explore the different uses of technology implementation currently in the classroom.
