FOST- Use them don't Abuse them


Continuing the discussion from Discussion: Free and Open Source Tools:

I really enjoyed reading this article.It made some very accurate points when it comes to teachers’ competence in their technology use and implementation of technology in their classroom. Teachers who are more tech savvy are the teachers who use more technology in their instructional practices. I use FOST in my classroom, however I try not to rely heavily on technology. There have been times when the internet went out in our school and some teachers were completely lost. Prior to taking the course, I considered pretty tech savvy and I quickly discovered that was not the case. This course however has boosted my confidence and I have learned new applications to use in my classes
