Hello my name is Karen McKelvey and I am a 4th grade teacher at Curie Elementary School in San Diego, California. I began teaching at Curie Elementary in 2002. I feel fortunate to be part of such a great community. I love blogging with my students as it provides them with an authentic audience for their work.
I completed my masters in Educational Technology from S.D.S.U. in 2010. Many of the concepts and technologies I learned about in this program, like learning management systems, wikis, and blogs are already implemented in my classroom. Technology plays a key role in the learning that occurs in our classroom. We don’t learn about technology, we learn with technology. For example, every year my class participated in the Edublogs Student Blogging Challenge. For ten weeks students were engaged in activities that incorporated writing, research skills, critical and creative thinking skills and much more.
