  • So, when I came back to Camilla, I started using wikis with my students immediately and sat down in my classroom to begin blogging. I turned to a student and said, “I have to create a blog and I have to name the thing – what should I name it?” The students sitting there said, “Well, Mrs. Vicki, you’re cool and we’re the wildcats, so, why don’t you call it the cool Cat teacher blog
  • And that is what I suggest for you to do today. Your assignment for this webinar today is to come up with your “Big Three” at the end of the webinar. Pick three things – start there!
