Based on Moller’s “static-dynamic continuum”, I would place myself as being mostly in the middle or slightly towards the static side. While I thoroughly enjoy using many of the dynamic technologies available for personal use, I have a hard time trying to figure out where to fit them into my classroom. Especially now that I teach only online, I know I need to make a move towards using more dynamic technologies so I can keep my students engaged. One way i plan to do this is to continue learning about the various technologies, but also to become a user of them. Many of the course readings we have had this quarter have suggested that technologies only are not going to motivate and encourage learners, or provide a deeper level of understanding of the material. To achieve these, the technologies have to actually be used! Specific to the courses I teach, I would like to begin incorporating more technologies such as mathplayground.com, Geometer’s Sketchpad, MindMeister, Edmodo, and some wikis.
