For the past year, I've been working on my Master's degree from Ashland University. It all began because I needed to take 12 college credits to renew my Ohio Teaching License. But if I'm going to spend time taking classes, it better count towards a degree. So, I enrolled in Ashland University to gain a Master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction. As a working mother of two very active daughters, I love Ashland's online offerings. As I type this homework assignment, I'm on the WiFi at my church while my daughter is in Youth Group! I can get class work done and take my daughters to their activitites.
As part of my current course, I must create and maintain a Blog. Thankfully, I've already created this blog. So, I plan to add a few posts over the next few months about my classwork.
Most recently, we learned to make a Wiki. Here is the link to my Wiki:
I hope that you'll check it out. The best part of the Wiki is my research on creating an Art History timeline on the Internet. Since a basic timeline is required for all 4th grade students in Visual Art in Ohio, I decided to add a technology component. I'm currently working on the logistics to take the Harmon Elementary students into the computer lab so that they can create their own timeline.

After suffering through a college course rich in data and numbers - Quantitative Analysis, I am loving this current course - Introducation to Principles of Instructional Technology. I've even considered adding a Technology endorsement to my teaching license and adding a "minor" in Technology to my Master's Degree. Any teachers out there have any recommendations for me?
