Voicethread Test

March 31, 2008

Well, I was catching up on many of the posts that my classmates have been posting, and I went into Walter’s blog and looked at his video for his digital project. He recommended Voicethread and Animoto. So I thought I would give it a try. So here it goes my last two hours. I went […]

Inspirational Leader

March 31, 2008

I experienced yet another ‘shot of adrenaline’ with regards to the importance and potential technology can offer education. My EC&I class had the privilege of Chris Lehmann as a guest speaker On Wednesday, March 25th. Chris is the Principal of the Science Leadership Academy in Philadelphia, and this school and it’s students are very fortunate […]

Catching Up!!

March 26, 2008

My blog has been neglected!! I am finding (once again) that there are not enough hours in the day to ‘keep up’. It has been a while since I last blogged but I have many ideas in my head. I am like a ‘bad student’! I have quite a few blogs partially done (those ideas […]

Choice Fatigue . . . No Kidding!

March 26, 2008

As a self-proclaimed technological ‘rookie’, I experienced a very interesting discussion on March 18th in my EC&I 831 class. I listened to Brian Lamb and D’Arcy Norman discuss many issues . . . most of which I did not understand!! I really felt ‘over my head’ (so to speak) with regards to much of their […]


March 14, 2008

Thanks to Connie and Alec for steering me in the right direction. I was able to get my blogroll onto my page. I was doing everything correct but I had removed the links widget (in my hours of trying to get the blogroll to show). Lots of man hours to try to solve a simple […]

Blog Problems

March 14, 2008

I was having some difficulties ‘personalizing’ my blog . . . my lack of knowledge really hit home the other night when I attempted to get my blogroll to appear on my blog page. Over an hour later, with many different clicks, help menus, and unsuccessful attempts I gave up!! I am seeking the assistance […]

Digital Project Update

March 13, 2008

Although a work in progress, I introduced my classes to my digital project. I toured them through my Science 6 class on my Moodle page and showed them where I was at and where I was hoping to go. I clicked my way around the different links, opening websites and documents that the students have […]

What Are You Afraid Of?

March 12, 2008

Last Wednesday our EC&I 831 class had a great discussion on media awareness and the discussion evolved into one potential problems that can arise with the use of on-line tools. One question that was posed to us was ‘what are you afraid of?’. Our class has been introduced to numerous web-tools and their implications on […]

Unveiling . . . Part 2!

March 7, 2008

Technology, isn’t it great.  For those that attempted to browse my digital project for my EC&I 831 class, you might have run into some technical difficulties!!  The link I provided to my Moodle page did not take you to my page but to the school division page.  When I tried the link (before I published […]

Digital Project Unveiling!

March 6, 2008

I thought I would show you my modest digital project for my EC&I 831 class. I am setting up a Moodle page for my Science 6 class. I am hoping to keep it updated and incorporate as much technology into the site as possible (at least where it permits itself). I have found there to […]
