The first thing I did was to set up my itunes account becuase I did not have one. Now that I do have one, I love it. I use my small devices every single day. I use them during the learning centers for books, phonics, math and so much more. I have use during a math lesson where my students went around the school looking for 3d shapes and took pictures of objects that resemble 3d shapes.
I plan to start a project with the 4th grade teacher using Skype. My plan is to collaborate with a 4th grade teacher in having her students read stories to my kindergarten teachers. My plan is to have buddy readers for my student but with the help of technology. Also I could work with a fellow friend and teacher that lives in California and discuss the daily weather so students can see the differences in weather all over the US.
I have created accounts in edmodo, google docs, and blogger and I can see how this can benefit me as an educator becuase I am able to share documents and thoughts about a specific subject. I still need to learn how I can incorporate with my Kindergarten Class. I would like ideas if you like to share. Here is my edmodo site.

I love Google docs! It's a great way to store files in one place and also to share with your team mate. I always like to share any resources that I find with my team and this is great way to do it and maybe even work on a project together. It avoids all the emails and copies..
