Lou Ford

Hi, my name is Lou Ford and I am taking this class for recertification points and to become familiar with eLearning.  I work with special needs students in kindergarten and first grade.  I’m not sure how much this will benefit them but I know they would much rather do something on the computer than sitting at a desk.  I have 4 nearly grown children of my own whom have been doing most of the technology for me!  They have set up my facebook and instagram accounts and figure my phone and computer out when I’ve done something to them, almost  daily.  I don’t have much free time but when I do, I can be found running through the streets or on a trail.  I started this as a way to be alone when my kids were small and now most of them enjoy doing it with me! I have set my twitter up as well and have not used either of these technologies in the past.  I’m not sure how these could facilitate learning for my specific students at this point but am eager to explore them.
