Final Report on PLN

My Personal Learning Network has been a great way to organize all my applications.  Through it I have been able to access everything that I use on the internet via all my bookmarks on one page.  It is a great tool in organization, and I think it will be extremely useful when I am a teacher.  The good thing about PLNs is that virtually everyone can use them.  I will be sure to recommend PLNs to anyone and everyone that needs a good and easy way to store all their information and applications.

Summary C4K #8-11

The first student that I commented on was named Colton from Ms. Cassidy's 1st grade class.  His blog post was a recording of him making a phonetic sound.  I said that he had a great reading voice and mentioned some other words with the same phonetic sounds.  The 9th child was in Miss Byrne's 7th grade class, and his name was Tristin.  He made a sort a montage of war pictures for Remembrance Day.  I told him that his pictures did a great job of evoking the emotion of the day.  The next student was from Ms. Millar's 3rd grade class.  The student made a picture and phrase to remember all the names of the planets.  I told the student that that was a great idea and that their picture was very creative.  The last student was named Yasmine from Mr. St. Pierre's class.  Yasmine's blog was a Wordle based on a book that she had been reading.  I told her that in the EDM 310 class, we had to make a Wordle as well and that hers was very creative. 

Summary C4T #4

For my Comments for Teachers #4, I was assigned to Wesley Fryer's blog, "Moving at the Speed of Creativity."  The first post that I commented on concerned Screenr and how screencasting is becoming a part of technological literacy.  I agreed with him and mentioned how we have used applications and websites like Screenr and Screenjelly in our class.  The second blog post that I commented on was about a technology workshop that Dr. Fryer was holding.  He was holding the workshop to talk about Google Tools.  I mentioned that I never knew how much one could do on Google until I started using it with EDM 310.  It is amazing to see all the things you can do.  Overall, I think that Dr. Fryer has a very interesting blog with some very useful information.
