In this class we worked on our webquests and decided a due date for it. The date chosen was Thursday April 30, 2009.

Power Point

Today in class we talked about PowerPoint and file types. PowerPoint in windows 97-03 was saved as PPT and with the current version is saved as PPTx. PowerPoints can be saved as many different types of files, including a website (HTM). I had a few minutes to find a powerpoint that I would use in my future class, so I chose a presentation about the planets. ISTE standards for this would be standard 1 and standard 2. Standard 1 is Facilitate and inspire student learning and creativity and Standard 2 is Design and Develop Digital-Age Learning Experiences and Assessments.

Graph Graphic

Today in class we created a bar graph using the Kid's Zone website. I found it easy to use this website. The ISTE NETS for this would include Facilitate and Inspire Student Learning and Creativity and Design and Develop Digital-Age Learning Experience and Assessments. My graph has the National scores and WV scores from 2000-2007. Hope you find my graph interesting.

Today we were to create a graphic that we would be able to use in the classroom. I chose the Solar System. I copied a picture from google and saved it to my desktop. I opened it with paint to edit it, because I know how to use paint and knew what I needed to do. Paint was good because it was quick and easy to use. When I double click the graphic opens into Windows picture and fax viewer. My graphic is a JPEG image that is 34.7 KB. My graphic can be used as a quiz in Science class. Making graphics like this will be something that I would do for quizes in whatever subjects/lessons I can find pictures for. INTASC principle 3 and principle 4 would go along with using graphics. The ISTE would be the second one which is Design and Develop Digital-Age Learning Experiences and Assessments.

Dale's Cone of Experience

After reading the article I answered the following questions:
  1. Describe what Dale's Cone of Experience is? It is the way people learn and remember things.
  2. Is Dale's Cone of Experience logical? Factual? Its more logical than factual because people learn differently and not all experience learning in the same types of processes.
  3. How does Dale's Cone of Experience comport with current research on teaching and learning in the assigned reading. After reading, comment on your opinion of the validity of Dale's Cone of Experience. More people do learn better when they can hear and do something rather than just see our hear what they are learning. I believe that Dale's Cone of Experience is pretty accurate, but not all people will learn and retain information the way his cone shows.

PhotoStory Project

So I definitely forgot that we were suppose to post our photo story until yesterday. But anyway this was the first time I had ever seen this software. Now that I have used it I love it. I thought it was easy and fun to use. Before I posted it to YouTube, I had a song from my media player's library, but when I uploaded the video YouTube told me that I couldn't use that song. So now that I had to pick a different song, I don't think it is as good as it was, the song made a difference. But there isn't much I can do about that, so I'm happy with the way it turned out.
Here's the link:
