Resolutions: Technology

Happy New Year, bloggy friends!

Technology resolutions?  Oh my.  That's overwhelming!

Let's start with getting more use out of my iPad!  I need to find some good apps to use with my small groups.  I have a whiteboard app and flashcard app that I love, but I need to find more.

Speaking of iPads, let's just add maybe trying to get a set from Donor's Choose!  I would LOVE to have them for my listening center (or lack thereof).  Maybe it'll be this year, maybe next school year.  But this is definitely on my wish list!

Did you know that creating digital material is part of the new Common Core?  Uggg...this is exciting and frustrating.  I can't figure out how I'm going to get my firsties to create something on a computer that's RELEVANT (not pictures or goofy things).  This will be a HUGE task that will take some MAJOR thinking.  Maybe a new product I'll put out?  In a few months?  Ha!  But it's a goal of mine.  I have to get my kiddos creating on the computer!

Ok, that's all for now.  :)  I know this post was not that helpful in the least bit.  :P  But one of my personal resolutions is to be in bed by 10:00 every night!  As we can see, first night: FAIL.  Off to bed anyways!  Gotta try!  ;)  

If you head back tomorrow like me, GOOD LUCK!!!!!


  1. Happy New Year, Sarah! I hope you have a fun day tomorrow!

  2. It is really frustrating. I think that whoever wrote all these things into the CCSS think that I have all the time and resources in the world! Sorry, on my soapbox. I am a new follower!
