email - I have to admit that I am tempted to say "time waster". I feel it is our responsibility as a professional to make sure we are using email as a productivity tool. It has helped open communication with parents and staff. However, I am annoyed by how many emails I open each day that are silly jokes and other time wasters.
IM - TIME WASTER! Students are IMing each other while doing homework or other tasks.
Web Conferencing - I watched my husband hold an interview with 3 other employers. I was amazed by the technology and wondered how I might ever use it.
I visited the Ebooks and Netlibrary. I did not attend the Webinar but downloaded the handouts.
