Artifact:
Title: Padlet
Link: EmergingTech5_dah

Rationale:
I have used Padlet in the classroom for Do-Nows at the beginning of the class and Exit Questions at the end of my class. I have had discussions where students must type their response on a note in Padlet. Additionally I had a Professional Development Session about Web 2.0 where I encouraged the faculty to create their own definition of what Web 2.0 is.

Artifact:
Title: WordPress Technology Review, Professional Development Presentation
Link: EmergingTech7

Rationale:
I use WordPress to motivate students to channel their yearning to use Social Media in an educational way. I have presented the usefulness of WordPress (and blogging overall) to the faculty in a Professional Development Session. Additionally, I use it to encourage students to create an e-portfolio to display their work and market themselves to colleges or future employers. Some of the teachers have adopted WordPress to reflect on a current topic in class or a chapter in a book. WordPress provides a great forum for reflecting by the teacher and student alike.
