Week 9, Thing 23

I am interested in using prezi - I am tired of powerpoints so I imagine the kids are too. I would like to try and convert some of my lecture notes into different presentation formats.

This has been a wonderful course and I thank you sincerely for all that you have done for us. I have spent some enjoyable time playing this summer (neglecting the work I was planning on getting done).

Thing 8, Thing 21

I need to take time to explore Storybird and GoAnimate a bit more. At first glance, I am always thinking that I would like to share the technology with my older students for them to use when planning lessons.

I also think that this is the best replacement for making books in the storytelling unit for my entry level class. I see this as a great opportunity for collaboration with Language Arts for writing and illustrating a story for preschoolers.

There are some concepts/essential questions that could be better introduced with digital storytelling to better grab student's interests. We take lots of pictures in our lab and classroom and I try to use real life experiences in my lessons on a regular basis to promote interest in learning. I love all the tools for utilizing photos that you have shared. It's going to take time and thought (as well as trial and error) to use them effectively.

I have tried this several times and keep getting the same message. It won't embed as a wall. Here is the link for the wall. Wallwisher for cudacare ; however, I was able to embed it on my edmodo site without any problems.
