This week I would like you to use your imagination. You have just won the lottery and will leave your teaching post immediately to travel around the world. As you leave your keys you meet your replacement. You are asked to give this new teacher just ONE piece of advice. What would that be, and why? Enjoy your world expedition!

Blog Post - Week 7
This past week in my own teaching I felt a little disconnected which prompts my question to you, "What was the moment (or moments) when I felt most disconnected or disengaged as a teacher - the moment(s) I said to myself, I'm just going through the motions here?"

I have become more and more use to this style of learnin' as we go along. Like I have stated earlier this week "I would rather read the blog and comment. than write my post." I have enjoyed the blog and also enjoyed the face to face sessions. We all seem to be in the same boat in many of our teaching situations. I am still alittle old school. I do like the flexible schedule of the on-line sessions. but sometimes I would rather have some of the lessons in person. Also I had to print out a lot of the on-line lessons to help me stay focused. The print outs really helped with the Bloom's on-line lesson.
I also recognize that many of the master level classes are on-line. This course has helped me overcome some of my cyber world hangups. This is the first blog that I have been on in the cyber world. Text messages and instant messages are next. Over all I have enjoyed the on-line sessions. There have been some technical hang ups on my end. The school system's firewall has many problems with accessing education sites and the GSU sites. I have probably written more in the comment field than the post field, and I wrote some weeks more than what was required. I hope that this blog can be saved for future reference.
