Artifact 6.2 - I chose to display my Educational Goals for the world to see. As a Teacher I observed students in 8th grade who struggled with reading. I wanted to recommend reading material that was revelant to their age (tweens and teens) other than "One Fish, Two Fish." I focused on academic vocabulary options as recommended by my University Supervisor.
I chose to introduce our vocabulary terms to a rhythmic beat. This technique also helped with enunciation of the words. I began to conceptualize a multi-media room with screens with sight words, a translation option, a definition all by playing a game. What if we presented content like ken Burns presents documentaries? An idea was born to open a Learning Center.
Here are my goals and more to come . . .

Artifact 6.3 - I chose to include the Padagogy Wheel—a teaching method that determines how we utilize applications. It is truly a cool way to present how might use an app yet it includes what you need to do simultaneously, such as to think about how I may use apps to plan and implement instruction that can improve student learning by focusing on the program you are instructing. IThis strategy drives innovation, and not the other way around.
