Blog Post for April 25th, 2010

I loved how this 7th grader is using the internet for her own PLE. I am impressed at what this young 7th grade student is learning, when I am a Junior in college and I had no idea what other technology is out there. I plan to research this during the summer. How amazing!

Two questions that can change your life!
1) What's your sentence?
2) Was I better today than yesterday?

These two simple stated questions are two very intense questions to ask yourself. Everyday we wake up and we are faced with a challenge, whether its to get out of bed or stay in bed; or to face the day with a positive outlook or a negative outlook. I often reflect on my day and think about each situation and if I could have handled it differently. Most times, I could have caused myself less stress if I would have handle a situation better. But what are you to do? I believe that every day is what you make of it whether its happy or sad, it's what you make out of your day. Everyone needs a sentence to help "navigate" in life. I am not sure what my sentence is as of now, but I will know my sentence soon. I believe that everyday is better than yesterday because the following days you have time to reflect on what happened and how to resolve any conflicts and how to solve any situations better. Every day is a challenge, it's up to you to take the challenge or not.

  1. Reflection is an important part of teaching. Having your students refle t is equally important. I am looking forward to learning what your sentence is.
