Greetings, EdTech 537!

Welcome to my blog! I have been working at this for about a year. I must admit, that I am not very good at updating it. I started it to document and reflect on my ventures into inquiry and  flipped learning in my history courses. I chose to use the Blogger platform because I love all things Google, but in my own classroom I am having the students use KidBlog.

I have just started the Boise State University EdTech program. I have always enjoyed educational technology so I look forward to learning more about it. I'm also pleased that I can take classes from the comfort of my home in Seattle, WA where I live with my husband. I am currently two weeks away from finishing my eighth year of teaching JH and HS Social Studies as well as advising the yearbook staff and student council.

Twitter is my favorite tool for professional development, you can find me @kaelynbullock. My PLN (Professional Learning Network) has inspired me to try flipped learning (#flipclass) and inquiry-based learning (#inquirychat). More recently, I have been looking into Standards-Based Learning (#sblchat) and gamification (#leveluped). These topics will be my summer projects and I hope to use this blog to reflect on my learning and progress.


  1. Kaelyn, this is a good strategy for this course for someone who has been blogging in the past (i.e., use the course as a way to further develop and, maybe even, get into a blogging groove on an existing blog). Hopefully, it'll live up to your expectations.

  2. Kaelyn,

    I'm also a fan of using Twitter as an ongoing, up to the minute form of PD. I have learned a lot from my PLN - especially #norcalchat on Mondays, #weirded on Wednesdays and #tleadchat on Thursdays.

    I look forward to learning with you.

  3. Kaelyn: How is your flipped classroom going? I have two math teachers that I work with that tried it this year for the first time. I know they would love to hear your thoughts. We are also in the Seattle area!!
