Reflection:  I believe I have shown a proficient understanding of strand 5, i've learned how to make technology work for the students, parents, and even myself as a teacher.  I worked with Publisher this semester and I was able to create a Newsletter which is a way to use technology to keep the school, and parents informed about what my students are doing in the  classroom.  I think using publisher was a great way to engage parents to stay involved with child's school work.
