A Bit of an Introduction

Welcome to my Instructional Technology Blog! This particular blog was initialized as a requirement of my EDUC2201 course. I'm very new to the concept of blogging, so I am looking forward to all that I will learn throughout this semester. I'm currently an Elementary Education major; however, I would ultimately like to teach education courses on a collegiate level. Whether I end up in an elementary or college class, I will need to have a good grasp on the technology available to me as an educator. I hope to gain that necessary knowledge from this course so that I will be more readily able to offer my students helpful technological tools to enhance their learning.

Webquest info

While the power standard fits into the techstep I will be teaching, it does not fit into the webquest I intend to construct to accompany it. Therefore, I needed to pick a new CSO to help write my driving question. My new CSO is: SC.O.E.2.28-research alternative energy sources and evaluate the ecological, environmental and economic cost-benefit ratio.

My driving question is: Which type of energy source is best for both the environment and ourselves?

Here is an anchor video that I would use to launch this webquest:
Electricity from all kinds of Renewable Sources

  1. Good Driving Question. You might want to use a video that gets kids thinking about why we should use renewable energy.
