Summary of C4T 4,5 and 6

My C4T 4, 5, and 6 were on a teacher named LISA THUMANN. Her website is called “THUMANN RESOURCES” and it's purpose is to inform the viewers of the "21st Century ideas to help facilitate good teaching and learning".

For my C4T 4, I commented on a summer reading program. The program is designed for students in first through sixth grade. They can read any eight books and then write about them in their Barnes and Nobles Summer Reading Passport. In doing this, they will receive a free paperback book. I think the reading program is a great way to keep students motivated during their summer break and it also allows them to have a smoother transition into the next school year.

My C4T 5 is about her discussing the different websites she learned about from the edtech conference that she attended. She listed several websites with their links, which would be beneficial for educators to use. My favorite one of all is Sweetsearch. It is recommended for students in kindergarten through 8th grade. This website is an educational search website that is suitable for their age group. You can view this website here.

In my final C4T, She discusses the meaning of an Unconference. She attended an EdubloggerCon East in Boston and wanted to simplify her thoughts on what an unconference is. Basically, it’s a gathering of people talking about a common subject. Everyone who attends is seen and heard. It’s an informal way to learn and share new ideas.
