Tool #11

1. I think the most useful, and therefore my favorite tools are Google Docs and the use of iPads.  I have already been using these tools for sometime and love that others are seeing their potential now.

2. I'm torn on this issue.  While I do recognize value in increasing technology in the classroom to better engage learners, streamline daily activities, decrease environmental impact by eliminating some of the paper assignments, all while keeping up with the "times," I also know that many students would benefit more from having smaller class sizes and more bodies in the classroom for a more one-on-one learning environment.  This is especially true for my academic students, many of whom do not have full access to some of these tools outside of school.  I will be incorporating many of these things into my classroom, but as with any major changes, we will have to start with baby steps.

3. There weren't any unexpected outcomes since I am already using many of these tools and had already completed 23 Things and 11.5 Things in previous years.
