I think that with the way technology has been advancing and has become such a big part of our lives in the past few years that it is important to integrate it into our classrooms. I really like the idea of teachers having websites and blogs to keep parents informed about what happens during the school day. I also think that integrating other social networking sites such as Twitter and Skype are a good tool for the classroom too! Skype can be used in connecting students with other students across the country and even the world. Tools like these can build students understanding of culture while also navigating modern technology!
