Technology News:-)

Dear Parents,


Let me take this opportunity to tell you how much I am enjoying your child in my reading class.  It’s hard to believe we have just completed 9 weeks of school. You probably have heard that we have been using iPads in my classroom to work on projects that correlate with the Alabama Course of Study. I am trying to constantly incorporate new twenty-first century skills for students.  I feel strongly to inform parents and guardians on some of the technologies we will be using during this year (Edmodo, Gmail, wikis, blogs, iMovies and possibly others).  Should you have any questions during the year, please feel free to contact me via email (kstovall@winfield.k12.al.us) or by calling the school.


One of the items students will be using is Gmail.  This is a free email service through Google.  The purpose of using this is to get students familiar with email, attaching files to messages, and a variety of other skills.  In order to have your own account at Google you must be at least 13 years old – however, as a parent, you can create and maintain an account with your child if he/she is under 13.  It is not mandatory that a student have an account; students will be able to learn and participate in class without one. HOWEVER…having an account will greatly enhance the educational experience, allow us to dive deeper into content, and be much more convenient for your son/daughter.  My feeling is that it is safer to learn to use email correctly in a classroom setting rather than from an unsupervised friend.  But, if you do not want your child to have one, I totally understand.


As technology continually advances and permeates various facets of our lives, I believe this is an exciting time in education as students and teachers alike explore and utilize new technology as tools in teaching and learning.  As such it is important to have students develop twenty-first century learning skills, with an emphasis on safety. We also incorporate an Internet safety project into class, but will continue to stress the importance of safe Internet access throughout the semester. Should you have any other questions, please let me know.


Please fill out the form attached and send it back to school ASAP. I plan on creating these emails on Friday.

We started a project last week that should keep us busy for a while. We are learning about the plot of the story and the you  have been given a HUGE assignment. You have your groups and your stories and now you have to make me an iMovie telling me the plot:-) I think we are all excited about it. AND....after I showed you how easy making an iMovie could be....you should be pumped!! Check out our iMovies and see what you think of how we spend our days....Someone mentioned having a weekly iMovie, I like that idea a lot!!
