iPaddiction is Batting 1000

Blog post 1000!

In 2011, I decided to document everything I used technology for in my classroom.  Things I discovered, things I tried, things that failed, things that I thought others may be interested in learning.

On March 25, 2011, I posted my very first iPaddiction post!

I'm not sure what I expected as I had blogged before under RecessDuty, but with no real purpose.  Truthfully, iPaddiction was all about recording items that occurred with technology integration in my classroom because I felt I needed to justify $30,000 worth of equipment I was entrusted with.

As I progressed forward in blogging, I realized my niche was using the iPad to physically record "action" of technology being implemented.  My YouTube channel was my main source for hosting videos. If you ask some of my students from the 2011-2012 school year, they would probably laugh at how many times I asked them if it was o.k. to record them using tech or asking them for reflection comments.  It wasn't easy to record while I was teaching but I felt it truthfully was the most authentic use of technology (mostly iPads) on the web. (Humble opinion).

Nine hundred ninety nine posts later and iPaddiction has turned into a celebration of our "Rock Star" staff and students along with a "go to" place for sharing "how to" videos with our staff and people from around the country!
