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?"

Elluminate Live

I must say I enjoy Elluminate Live. I realize there are times when it takes a while to log in and sometimes connection is even lost. Despite all of those things I welcome Elluminate Live as a platform to take a class. Like anything that is new, there will be glitches. But after a while adjustments are made and if they are not made the program will survive or die. I really like being able to come home and be home with my daughter. I also like the fact that I do not have to drive to Alpharetta which saves me money on gas. There is one point I would like to make about Elluminate Live, I do miss the interaction between classmates and the instructors. Other than that I like Elluminate Live and look forward to taking other classes on line using this format.

I agree with you Sandra. I also like Elluminate Live. No matter how we teach everything always comes with a few glitches. I really like to be home with my children as much as possible. I especially like to save money on gas. The interaction with classmates is one drawback. But at least we all have met and put a name with a face, unlike some totaly online classes.
