Tool 2

I think that participating in an online community can be very helpful for the classroom teacher, but it can be very time consuming.  Especially to a person who is just starting out.  I haven't done any of this before and it was hard to go and find blogs to comment on.  I did visit some blogs of colleagues and found some that I would be interested in following.  I also visited some of students at our school and found some pretty cool things they were doing.  I think that if I was doing this on my own asides from my whole campus doing 11 tools I would be overwhelmed with trying to find blogs.  I did comment on one blog about having a blog for each department.  It could list good blogs to follow by teaching topics separated by curriculum

1st Tool

I've been at this for about 45 minutes so far.  As far as I can tell I haven't messed up yet!  :)  I'm a little jealous that my avatar is on the beach though!
