In his video This is How We Dream Part 1 and 2, Richard Miller talks about how multimedia is changing technology and the way we teach. Teachnology makes the world around us much easy to cope with. Using the internet is much faster then going to the library and opening a book. Using an online dictionary, encyclopedia, and much more internet sources are more available to uses through a click of a button. Learning should be fun. With technology we can make it interesting to learn. Richard also talks about the changes in writing and how its changing our community and the world around us. He focus on two main points which was the Incremrntal and Fundamental changes. Time is changing and so is technology and the way we use it. One of my favorite quotes from the video is, "Ideas don't belong to us individually, but to us as a culture." If we come together to incoporate technology into teaching, things will change as a culture in the educational field.
Carly Pugh Blog Post #12 was so awesome. All her ideas and comments was good and on point. She was very detailed when explaining her assignments. The video's she shared on her blog was very good examples of her Youtube play list. It inspired me to put more work into my blog assignments and just have fun with it. I love how she thought deeply about her assignments before starting her post. She had such enthusiasm about her blog post. She also was connected to Dr. Millers video on how to use technology. She did a great job.
EDM310 For Dummies was a funny video. Sometimes I feel just like the girls in the video. If it was not for the video that Dr. Strange inserted in the blog assignments and project assignments I would have been lost on half of the things we have to do. It can be stressful with all the work that has to be done, but if I stay on top of my work, I'll be fine.The Chipper Series video makes a good point about being on time with your work.Chipper procrastinated and did everything she could to take the easier route that did not require her to do any work. In the end it did not do her any good because she was not successful as she should have been. If she would have stayed in school and followed directions she would have done a good job. Late assignments or just not doing your work will not make it in any classes. You cannot pass without doing. work. Had work beats talent any day.
Learn to Change,Change to Learn is about educators discussing how education is changing. They state that 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.
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.
