Summary C4T #2
Over the past couple of weeks, I have been following Michael Kaechele's teaching blog. In the first post I read, he mentioned the idea of online reading instead of just reading from books. He allows his students to read for a certain amount of time online, if they wish. I commented that this is a good way to get kids searching for information on the internet. It can be a helpful resource for educational information as well as for entertainment. The second post I read was about an online lottery source that he found. He thought it would be useful in teaching probability. I agreed with him. I think it is another way to get kids online and actively involved in the learning process. Overall, I have enjoyed reading his blog and am sorry that I didn't get to have him as my teacher!
