Wizard of Apps

Check out this SlideShare Presentation:

The Wizard of Apps

I deleted my post about this video because I realized I was very hard on it and didn't really take it for what it was worth. I am sorry if anyone was offended by my comments but I was just saying what I thought. I will watch the video again and see if I can get more out of it

My Story about a storm in 5 pics

Digiteen Project 2007

Digital Citizenship sounds kind of boring at first when you hear it but it is a very beneficial part of education. Driving while you text is something that almost everyone does. I know I do and I know most of my friends do it. I have tried to cut back on doing it because I know it is unsafe. I think this would be a very beneficial video for students to watch, especially older one because they are the ones who are probably doing it the most. But it could also be used as a prevention tool by schools. I mean schools teach about drunk driving and doing drugs so this would be a good topic for students to start being taught about. I really like the video about students being aware of what they put on the internet. Students need to be aware that everything they put up on the internet can be seen by anyone at any time. Most students are probably unaware of this. I know I was unaware until very recently. I think these Digiteen videos would good tools for teachers to use in their classrooms. I have uploaded this video for everyone to watch.

Project Learning Video

I really like this video because I think that Project based learning would be a really fun way to teach what the students need to learn. I like that it helps to get the students out of the classroom and into having fun learning. I really want to find ways to do project based learning in my classroom. It is a good way to build teamwork within the classroom and a way to get the students closer. I think project based learning is a very positive way of thinking about education because there are many positive aspects of learning in that kind of setting. Here is the video for anyone wanting to watch it.
