Final Project Update #1

9 11 2008

So, I figured I would take some time to blog about my final project.

I am very interested to see how classroom teachers of all subject areas are incorporating technology into their  classrooms. Obviously there are teachers who use class websites and blogs which is great, but I want to know waht else teachers are using in the ‘real world’. Don’t get me wrong, it is great to talk about how we want to use technology in our future classrooms but it is even better if we can actually learn what current teachers (old and new) are doing in their classrooms. I am interested in finding out about teachers who have to deal with a very small budget (or no budget) as well as teachers who have a massive budget.

I have e-mailed out a survey to a number of contacts that have a very large network of teachers that they have access to but unfortunetely I am not seeing any return out of this. I gave people a number of ways of contacting me, and I understand that teachers are busy this time of year (and especially at the beginning of the year when I first sent out the survey) but I was still expecting some sort of response.

I am not completely empty handed though as I have recieved some feed back through a forum I joined (specifically for teachers). Most of the answers were very minimal and simplistic but I did get one that was very in depth (and believe me I appreciate it) that really set my mind thinking. Even though I am not completely empty handed I definetely don’t have a fistful of information. I have five responses, and am still hoping that some of the other people that have been contacted will respond.

If anyone is an educator (it doesn’t matter what level) and would like to respond to my questions please let me know and I will send out the survey to you (it is very short and does not take very long). As well, if anyone has any teachers that they believe would not mind answering questions I will gladly pass along the survey to you if you wouldn’t mind passing it along to them.
