Blog #1

This is my first time using a blog, and my first time discovering social networking outside of facebook.  Sometimes I have a hard time finding exactly what I am looking for on the web when I have a specific topic in mind, and now with social networking I can check my delicious account and search through web pages that have already been discovered by my fellow teachers and friends.  I will also be able to post my own great finds so my students can easily access educational websites and post sites of their own.  Blogging will also come in handy.  Instead of asking students to write journals on paper, wasting ink and trees, they can now post their thoughts and ideas online.  This makes it accessible to everyone in class and cuts down on dragging papers with me to and from class.

Great points! We should be able to become paperless with today's technology tools.
