Hope you all have finished creating your dream classroom by using Floorplan.  Let’s talk about the tool itself first.  How do you like this too?  Is it a good tool?  Any difficulty or problem you have while working on your project?

Now let’s talk about your learning environment with others. We are going to play the speed dating!

Each person has ONE minute to tell your date three things:

  1. Who are your students? (Grade Level and numbers)
  2. What is the subject matter/ content?
  3. What is the highlight of your classroom?

You need to move to the next person when you hear the bell. Then after listening to all your “dates”, we are going to vote for the best classroom created by the boys and the girls! Winners will win another late pass.


There are so many things I want you to know about teaching in K12 learning environments. Each of you is from a different background, has different interests, and different motivations for learning — a lot like the students you will teach.  Sadly, we don’t have time to talk about all these things in EDIT 2000.  Therefore, I want to challenge you all to complete the “Teacher Boot Camp”.  In small groups of 3 (no more than 4) – complete three pages  on our Boot Camp website. You’ll need to complete the handout as you work through each page – you can fill out one form per group.  After your team complete the task, one of your teammates MUST PRINT out the discussion result and turn it to me this Friday.

(If you missed class today – you’ll need to complete at least 3 of the 5 pages on the website ON YOUR OWN.)


  • Relax and catch up with what you missed in this class.


  • Browse the Web 2.0 tools in our Resource page.

MUST (By Friday, Feb.1)

  • Turn in your Teacher Boot Camp conclusion forms.
