And 4 your Next Trick. . .
We are almost finished. . .seriously ;-) I know that you all must feel like there is no end in sight, but the next two weeks should allow you to reflect on all of your hard work and newly acquired technological savvy as you prepare to write your TPE reflections. . .
What are we currently juggling: wiki, web 2.0, Inspiration, Journals 1-6, Intro to TaskStream, spreadsheets, and . . .I think that's it.
What we have left: iMovie software proficiency, EdTechProfile Post Test, emerging technology (pimping your blog with by adding your artifacts) and your TaskStream portfolio . . . not too much for two weeks.
Journals 5 & 6: You have the option to surf the web to find online publications that deal with educational technology, or you can choose one or two of the following . . .The August issue of L&L is now online, so I will use some articles from it!
Transforming School Communities: Creating Dialog Using Web 2.0 Tools By Helen Soulé and/or Connecting Depth and Balance in Class By Matthew S. Kuhn
Emerging Technology: I will go over how to put your Newsletter, PowerPoint, Inspiration, etc., on your blog. The emerging technology assignment is simply the way in which you incorporated everything we have learned into your blog using some of the cool tools that I demonstrate on the class blog!
Tonight we will begin the iMovie software proficiency assignment, which must be completed in the lab. You should be able to finish by Thursday evening.
That's it. . .I think
Tonight's question: Does the current Institution of Education teach students to value grades or learning? If a professor told you her/his course is going to be graded Pass/Fail, would you try just as hard? Explain.
