Welcome To Kindergarten: Getting Connected
I want to welcome all of you to Kindergarten. Kindergarten life is busy, interactive, fun, reflective, collaborative and inspiring. I use a lot of technology in Kindergarten. I have designed and created many websites for you and your child to interact with and share throughout our busy days together. Communication is vital and very important. So I need your permission to use your child's photograph and work. Everything I post and share is always in regards to learning. All sites are public. I will never post your child's name and photograph together.
I have emailed you all a lengthy handbook about/entitled; "Kindergarten Life". It's very lengthy and has detailed information about why and how I use social media, blogging and other web 2.0 tools in Kindergarten. Please read this BEFORE you fill out this form. It will hopefully help you in understanding why I need your permission as well as my purpose in regards to learning. I will also have some paper copies available during our 1st meeting on August 15th.
Please fill out this form so we can get connected and then you can begin tweeting, Skyping, blogging and begin to say hello to each other. I have also scheduled a special informational meeting on Thursday, August 15th 4-5:30 PM for you to attend to listen to and learn about how I use technology in Kindergarten to connect with you and the world.
Looking forward to a wonderful year of learning with all of you!
