I anticipate using a blog to allow my students to collaborate on projects and assignments. I don’t imagine I would use twitter much, as I feel I could just as easily use other materials I am more familiar with to accomplish the same task and possibly more.

I could help myself grow as a teacher by allowing students to give feedback and make contact with me through multiple different media.

I believe that some of the most important skills one can have is the ability to effectively search for information.
