the killers on PhotoPeach

So... tech class is coming to an end soon. Two more classes.... I really like the different tools we got to explore and check out. The blog has been good, and delicious.com is cool. Photopeach and moviemaker are fab. The wiki seems like a good way to make group projects easier... I hope to continue at least some of these! At the very least, I can keep them in mind for my classroom and future lessons.

Above is a video for your viewing pleasure... it was made last year by 10th graders and discusses the benefits of blogging from students' point of view
Blogs, Wikis, Podcasts
Chapter three explores blogging in step by step detail. I like that the book is easy to read and geared toward the majority of people that may not be familiar with, or completely confident using technology in the classroom. I'm confident that anyone can use it to improve their classroom. No matter what level you are at currently, there is a way you can use technology without feeling overwhelmed. As the chapter explains, Blogs are especially a good example of that. They are simple at their core, and can become more complex the more comfortable you get with using technology. This chapter offered new ideas and gets your mind working and thinking about potential lessons and classroom instruction that could be linked through blogging.
