Aug.30.. Thoughts

Over the last few weeks I have been debating what is the best media to communicate to my students as it relates to their homework as well as provide a way to post answers to homework and create a forum for asking questions and receiving answers.. ( and not just from myself but from others in the class, since problem solving approaches will vary with the creativity of the problem solver). So back to my original dilemma, will it be a webpage, a blog, a wikispace, a jing.. or some other method and there are many.. but central to any solution will be the use of technology. The message, the words, the communications will depend on using the internet.

I started a webpage it is viewable at , what do you think about the site name, establishing that unique sitename, is always a test of ones creativity. After visiting my site and returning to the blog, I realize that I like the freeform flow of the writing process of a blog and will use this for narratives and the website for the static stuff, like homework assignments, websites etc..
