WELCOME TO MY TECHNOLOGY DANCE BLOG SITE

The purpose for this blog is to share information and insights about using technology in the classroom with my fellow teachers and staff at St. Theresa of the Child Jesus School in Hellertown, PA, USA.  While this blog is targeted to my colleagues it is open to anyone who is interested in using technology in the classroom.  When I introduce a new topic area for the blog, I like to create stories from my life which are a tool I use when teaching in the classroom.  I find story telling has great power in conveying ideas and sparking imagination and creativity among my students.  Likewise, I hope that the stories posted here will have a similar effect on the teaching and support staff at our school.  This summer I have added a 14th story to the blog which focuses on the issue of bullying.  I hope you find the story interesting  and as always, I follow up with specific technology related tips at the end of each story.  If you haven’t read any of the other stories here I would encourage you to do so before diving into the other content.  One special feature in this blog for the start of this school year is a piece I wrote to help our new teachers and staff better understand how I and other existing staff view the use of technology in the school.  Please take time to read through that document as well.  A paper version of that document will be distributed at the first staff meeting for the school year as well. Looking forward to seeing you all again in August.  Have a blessed summer.

This site has been created to be an information and teaching site for the teachers and staff at St. Theresa School in Hellertown, Pennsylvania.

I have titled this site the Technology Dance because I first created this concept for the teachers at the school during the 2009-2010 school year to help them deal with technology issues at the school.  I’ve tried to use humorous stories of my dance experiences to illustrate key points about the use of technology in our school.

I will be adding new content to this site that won’t always contain these humorous stories, but it will contain helpful information for teachers using technology in the classroom.  Please feel free to add your responses and questions to the page posts.
