Reflection:  I demonstrated a clear understanding of strand 4 through evaluating different software packages as well internet cites that may work for the classroom, and in my content area of music.  Through evaluating a couple of packages I was able to evaluate how beneficial the cite was in aiding the children in their learning process.  One cite I used for one of my lessons included evaluating technology, and one cite that I looked at for music is called Playmusic  This cite has browsers and features that are fun for both the teachers and the students, I found it to be an effective approach for maximizing student learning.
