It's Wonka Vision...for the Educator: My New Teacher Web Site!

Most of us are familiar with this scene from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory where Willy Wonka shows the guests a new invention in his factory, "Wonka Vision." I'm sure even Roald Dahl's big imagination could not fathom the true connectedness that the internet would give the world. Though the "wonka vision" technology is fictional, in a way the internet gives us that same accessibility. Think about it, as educators, we can take our life-sized classroom and shrink it into a digital one the size of a laptop, a tablet or smartphone. Recently, I was assigned such a task...

and now I have my very own web site! It was an assignment we had to do for our Educational Technology class. I must say, I am quite pleased with the outcome and am looking forward to customizing it even further in my own classroom and showing it to various principals when I start to apply for teaching positions next year. Check it out here: or by clicking on the screen shot above. Tell me what you think!
