Ways in which I plan to extend my classroom will include a web site, Skype, and virtual field trips. Since Thing #7 I have been trying to continue developing my web site. Over the summer I hope to work on it enough to be ready for fall.
Using Skype, I hope to attempt a time virtual author visits. I am still looking into this, but the more I research it, the more doable it seems. Marzano strategies "Questions, Ques, and Advance Organizers" will fill perfectly with this type of virtual classroom.
I am most excited about virtual field trips as a way to extend my classroom. Each of our classrooms will be receiving 4 net books next year. Along with this, I have 3 computers on-line in my room that students have access to. If I schedule early enough, we also have an empty computer lab for use. Because of this, I am researching several virtual field trips that go along with my curriculum.
