Ichats: I think these will be a major step forward in communicating in a timely fashion with my classroom teams. So often, a situation emerges and we rely on email. To be able to quickly reach a colleague in another building, at a conference, etc. will enable us to make decisions based on the input of the team.
Wiki and Blogs: I need to further explore these tools. Keeping parents informed on the ever changing world of resources is a challenge. Offering parents a forum to share their experiences with accessing resources will also be a step forward. Further utilizing these tools for team collaboration will also impact our ability to more quickly respond to student situations.
Thanks for a great class.
