qr codes how to

This is a tutorial on how to make QR codes. I found it to be quite easy. I really liked making this. It was easy to explain and I can show the step by step how to make the QR code. It was not difficult to do this on my laptop. I am quite happy that i was able to accomplish this with such ease.

 

wordle how to

This is a tutorial on how to use Wordle. This tutorial on the other had had some difficulties because I had to install the Java script in the middle of making the tutorial which meant I started all over, but that wasn’t too bad. I had some trouble though when I was trying to show the different functions for some reason they didn’t want to open so I had to just cut it short without being able to show all the options. I still liked making this tutorial though.

Flipped Classroom

I loved this project. It was so easy and can be used for anything. I think I will use this in my classroom when appropriate. I think this idea is better with the older students though because it shows them how they are doing things on the computer and it takes a certain level on knowledge and understanding to ensure that the steps can be followed.

FINAL, My Wow Moment this Semester

Listen to this Post. Powered by iSpeech.org

I didn’t really have a wow moment this semester. I think this is a great class, and is very helpful. Everything was very interesting and can be equally used in the classroom. I think maybe my favorite project was the qr codes and my next favorite project was the flipped classroom. The qr codes gives the students a different approach to completing a project and the flipped classroom gives a new way to learning for the student. This class allows for students to take charge of their learning and that is the best way possible for them to learn. If the student wants to learn about something, then they are more apt to do whatever necessary to learn information.

FINAL, Semester Favorites

Listen to this Post. Powered by iSpeech.org

I really liked the Thinglink project. I feel like I can use this in my classroom to help bring in new topics, that are interactive. This is a great tool to use in the classroom to inspire students and to be creative on my own, with this tool I think it will be easier for students to be engaged in the learning or the activities for the day.

QR CODES I think this is a great project for scavenger hunts. There are a lot of ways for this to be used in the classroom. I think I would use this in my classroom for study guides, and projects. I feel like this is great idea to use between classes as well.

Remind 101 I like this tool because you, as the teacher, can contact the students and parents about what is going on in the classroom. There can be reminders sent and there there is no personal number from the teacher that is revealed.

FINAL, Best Web Tools for Teachers

Listen to this Post. Powered by iSpeech.org

While on the Top 100 FREE Education sites I found a site to help writer’s block. I find this site is nice to use in order to start a story, or even if you need a something wild and mysterious to change up the story. Another site i found was for Social Studies. This is a good site to bring history alive in the classroom, with lesson plans, digital resources, and other resources. I could use both of these sites in my classroom to help my students create fun interesting stories, and to make history come alive in my classroom. I know that usually history is a dull subject, but with this Library of Congress site that can change.

20 Best Education Apps

While on the Edudemic site I found an article about the 20 Best Education Apps and Web Tools of the Year.There are a lot of sites that would be very valuable in the classroom. There are even some that we used in this class. I think that it is very important to change the way the classroom is usually formed.

This is the original Power Point. It is dull, but keeps you informed, but not so much engaged.

I really like this site. It allows you to take a dull boring Power Point and make it into something great. I think this is a great site that will do well in the classroom. It will also be a great tool for any classroom, even to make fresh new Power Points from scratch.

INSPIRE

I really like this post. This is a great way to get students motivated. Usually students are doing the same things all the time, and they don’t think they can do anything better. With this site and these words teachers can change the way students think, increase their value of school work and have some great projects.

Reflection Week 15: iLearn Technology/Tynker: Computer programming for kids

TYNKER

This is another way for students to do computer programing. This requires no prior knowledge, and is very easy to learn and use. There are 6 lessons that take approximately 45 minutes long. As the teacher I can assign the lessons to my students and they will have step by step instructions on how to complete the assignment. These projects can be easily shared as well, which is great. Students can showcase their work, or as the teacher I can put the projects up on my website for others to see.

Reflection Week 14: EdGalaxy: Cool Stuff for Nerdy Teachers/Christmas Connections around the Globe-Geography Lesson

CONNECTIONS

This looks fun and interesting. I think students would have fun with this game. They get to learn about other cultures and how they celebrate Christmas. This does require students to have some knowledge of the cities provided, which I like because they have to use that memory of what was taught. This is a great way to review for tests it would have to be changed a little of course.

Reflection Week 14: EdTech Vision/Photoshop Screencasts

SCREENCAST

I think this is a great idea. I mean this helps ensure that the students remember how to complete the tasks, or gives extra help to the student who just didn’t get it in class. We kind of have this in my Technology class, but they are not screecasts, they are videos with links on how to complete the project. I think this is pretty cool especially for  the harder projects.
