Welcome to OpenEdToolbox, a place where I hope to group and share a number of resources that I develop and use in my own classroom. Watch this space for tried and tested classroom learning activities designed for primary (elementary) education.
Feel free to contact me via the blog or my Twitter account linked at the top of the page.
When I started blogging early last year, I wondered where it might lead. At first from curiosity, I visited a class blog and found the posts interesting. It wasn’t long before I started developing a passion for commenting on blogs and, occasionally, making extended comments when something in a post caught my particular interest.
What started out of curiosity with no particular plan for the use of blogs has grown to have direction. The surprise came when I found people were interested in following my blogs. After being retired from full time teaching, I again felt part of class life.
My vague plans to write a blog on more teacher centred posts fell by the wayside as I started to see many excellent blogs set up for teachers and PLNs.
I think this blog is a great idea for sharing resources and only confirms my belief I am better off sticking to commenting and letting active teachers keep other teachers up to date. 🙂
