A useful classroom tool I would suggest would be Weebly. Both students and teachers can use this classroom tool. This is a good tool to use because you can make your own website using this and you can also blog. Another good classroom tool to use is Wallwisher. Wallwisher is like a big bullentin board. You can post as many things as you want. You can also announce things to people and post pictures and videos.

School can become very boring. It can become boring for you if you do nothing in class. If you just take notes all class and listen to the teacher the whole time.. that is boring to me. We have to change some things we do during class. Instead of taking notes all period, we should do more group projects and be able to do more activitys and also being able to talk to friends during class. If we don't do any of these things, and just take notes and listen.. it is going to be a long year.

I agree with Sir Ken Robinson's video about students and how they are learning. I think students should be split into groups not by age, but by how smart they are. You would put the students who are best in one subject in one group so they can learn other subjects together. When they tested the toddlers and asked them questions about paperclips, they had 98%. As they got older, the percentage decreased. I thought they would have started lower than 98% and increase as they get older and more smart.

Once you delete a picture on facebook, it is saved for a few years. I think this can be a good thing because it teaches kids not to post innapropriate things on facebook. Everyone can see what you post, and once it is deleted, it is not gone. This can also be a bad thing because if you post innapropriate things on facebook, it will always be there if you delete it. But you shouldn't post bad things because everyone can see it.

Im not used to this whole blogging idea but I am starting to get the hang of it. A way you ca improve your blog is to not just talk about yourself. You should talk about topics that you are interested in. You can post about sports or anything that interests you. You should also comment on other people's blog too if you share the same interest. Just remember if they post on your blog, do not forget to post back. You don't just have to write about anything, you can share a video about anything and write about what happens. These are some ways you can improve your blog.

I like to learn about school related things and also sports like softball. One way for my PLN is Facebook. Facebook is a learning network and a social network. I also like to use twitter and blogger account. These can also be considered a learning network.
