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.

Week 7, Thing 18

I could save the image to my desktop and upload as a picture, but could not find the code snippet to embed.

Week 6, Thing 13

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.

Week 4, Thing 9

More fun. I think the girls would like to use this site for their lesson plans with the "littles."

Week 4, Thing 8

This was fun and lots easier than I thought it would be to create the avatar.

I found out how to add a link to the avatar if it's not possible to embed - of course I found it by making an error in posting it the first time.

Week 3 Thing 7

This is a great site and so much easier than photoshop. I missed somewhere how to wrap text in the post and had to go back and view the tutorial again. I really appreciate the great job you did with directions.
