Blog Post #8

Richard Miller talks about in his video This is How we Dream Part 1 and 2 how multimedia is changing technology and how we teach. Technology makes it easy for us to research material without opening a book or going to a library to do research. We can do all our research with a click of a button. Its faster to find something using the internet then looking it up in a book. Dictionaries, encyclopedic, and much more is available to us through a internet search. Learning should be fun and with technology we can make it interesting and fun. Richard also talks about the changes in writing  multimedia and how its changing our community and the world around us. There where two man points he talked about which was the Incremental and Fundamental change. Time is changing and  so is technology and the we teach.

Carly Pugh Blog Post #12 was so awesome. All her ideas and comments was good. She was very detailed and right to the point.  The video she shared and posted on her blog was very awesome and good examples of her YouTube play list. She did a good job on her post. It inspired me to put more work into my blog post and just have with it. Her post went along with Dr. Miller video and writing technology. She did a good job.

EDM310 For Dummies w
as a funny video and sometimes I feel just like the girls in the video. But if it was not for the video that is inserted in the blog assignments and project assignments I would have been major lost on half of the things we had to do. It can be stressful with all the work is that has to be done but if I stay on top of it I'll be fine. The Chipper Series video makes a good point about being on time with your work and turning it in. Late work and not doing your work will not make it in any classes. You cannot pass without your work being done.

Learn to Change, Change to Learn is about educators discussing about how education is changing. They state tha a classroom should not just be a class with four walls, but it should be the world. There are so many advantages to having technology in the classroom. They believe we should start with teachers to get to the children. They have created a place where teachers can interact with teachers from around the world. Technology will also provide the best quality in the classrooms. Also one of the guys in the video states that classes today are big on standardize test and other big test, but in the real world jobs do not require that.

Cool Pics

1). I found Edmodo. Its a site mostly for teachers and students. It kind of remind me of Facebook. I can put students in groups and connect with other teachers. It can be a good site for the classroom. I can post assignments, homework, and even project activities on there. Something I can really use.
2). I think the site Animoto created the video. They have a Lite deal which is free. Then they have the Animoto Plus which is $30 a year or $5 a month. This is very affordable. Something that is a very descent price.
