Blog Post #8

The Schools of Tomorrow

Richard E. Miller explains his views on writing in these videos. He believes that writing is the best way for a person to communicate. He is a big reader, which he learned from a young age. Richard Miller talks about how now students use their computers to write their papers and that they do not even need to use the library. The reason they do not have to use a library or a book, is because they can use the internet to search anything they need to.

These videos are really interesting, because they show how things have evolved due to technology. Now people can email each other their work and can have them view certain links or just simply print the document. Having all this information at your disposal is a great way to learn more about the past, future, and the present.

I am a huge advocate of technology! I feel it is something everyone should know and be familiar with. I think that it is so cool how easy it is to search something on the internet. You can make anything you want on a computer and have people from all over the world view it.

Carly Pugh's Project #12

This blog was written by Carly Pugh. This blog comes really close to what Dr. Miller had to say. I think this is one of the coolest things I have seen! I would love to try and incorporate this into my classroom as a teacher. I think it is a great way to get to know your students and to allow your students to get to know you. This was extremely well thought out and the directions were very well explained.

Chipper this video talks about all the problems people have with EDM310. This video shows why being on time and doing your work on time is going to help you when you become a teacher. EDM 310 for Dummies is a video about a book for EDM310. I really enjoyed both of these videos. I relate to both of these videos. I am a huge procrastinator like Chipper, and I get frustrate with all the work like EDM 310 for Dummies.

Learn to Change, Change to Learn

Watching this video makes sad. It is really sad that students learn more outside of school, then they do in school. I know when I was in high school, and even now in college, I will Google answers to questions that I do not know. I want to incorporate "networking" into my classroom, so that my students can connect globally with students and teachers all over the world. If my students are not mature enough to do this, then I will definitely do "networking" as a teacher. This way I will have the help and see what other teachers are doing all over the world. I really enjoyed watching this video, because it makes me think about how important a teacher is in a student's life.

Web 2.0

The video tool that I have never used is called Digimi. On this website you can make yourself into an avatar. I have never seen anything like this or tried anything like this. It was really easy and fun! You can upload a picture of yourself and build your avatar that way or make an avatar from scratch. This is a great site if you are not good on computers.

Edmodo is a way for teachers and students to communicate on the internet. This website is like Facebook/Twitter, it allows a way for teachers and students to communicate with each other and to communicate with other teachers or students from all over the world. I really like this website and I feel that it is a wonderful way to communicate with your students as a teacher.
