Journal | Question of the Day | E-mail assignment | Blackboard

Journal response - The Journal Question for today is, "What role, if any, do you see Virtual Field Trips and Video Conferencing playing into your technology integration this year?" Before responding to the question, I want you to visit The Field Trips Site  , CILC and Connect2Texas and see if any of these things fit into your curriculum. (You also have a hard copy in your Day 9 packet) Then, in your journal response tell me HOW and WHAT you might use with your students this year. Save this in your folder as "Day 9 journal" and print two copies, file one in the project box on the back table.
