The Perfect Online Teacher


What on earth would the perfect online teacher look like? Accounts set up andactive with
answergarden, tagxedo, animoto slide, stixy,livebinders, juxio, titanpad, studiyo, skrbl whiteboard, illuminate live, dushare, crocodoc, nota,flashcarddb, Promethean Planet, FaceBook, Twitter...

Class Facebook page on the roll with daily updates...

Class blog running daily with masses of input from the class as well as maximum enthusiasm with it...

Fully contributing to online discussions around education hotspots of the hour...

Um, and when do they have time to keep their professional blog updated...their planning current and relevant and so on...

When do they manage their class wiki and keep their professional reading up on Google Reader?
How do they keep the children's e-Portfolios managed throughout?

Okay, okay, I know it is all pie in the sky really to imagine this super-gadget-online-hero-teacher actually exists, but isn't it all about MANAGING SELF for us too???

And, aren't we COLLABORATORS and THINKERS and CREATORS too?! As well as our ability to work with others and manage our time well!

So, like anything in life, the 'perfect' and 'ideal' of anything is someone who has BALANCE!
