Digital Imaging. . .

Today was an interesting lesson. I've always used digital imaging a lot for sites such as Facebook and Myspace but never knew exactly what all the terms meant. It was helpful to learn different tips for taking pictures. The 5 image assignment was fun and helpful! I was able to learn how to obtain images frm a variety of sources and I know having knowledge of that will be helpful in my classroom!

Lesson Plans!

Today was a fun day! We learned how to create a lesson plan using the state and curriculum standards. The TEC lab was interesting and I know it will benefit me while pursuing my future career. It was fun being able to browse the different resources and texts available to us! Time to do the lesson plan....

Rock Star Day

Today I had a lot of fun doing the state project with my group and my filamentality. These websites definitely gave me insight on easy, fun, and interactive activities I can use with children of all age. Hopefully we will have a good weekend with a BIG win! Go Vols!

Practice makes perfect!

Well today I feel a lot better about how blogs and wikis work. Until now I was a little confused about using the different features on both programs, but learning how to add photos and spending some time exploring blogs and wikis has seemed to clear a lot up for me :) I can honestly start to say I am becoming more technologically advanced! I know more time and practice with blogs and wikis will continue to help me!

Working with Webquests

Today we learned how webquests work. It was interesting to learn about how different ones can be useful for different grades. Although they seem helpful for older grades, they are an interesting way to get students to work together in groups. I would still like to learn how to upload photos on wikis and blogs!

This week in class we set up our own blog website for IT 486. I enjoy creating new blogs because it will help me gain experience and practice for when I want to use blogs in my classroom!
