Going Green

I'm sorry it took me so long to post "Going Green", but this video include a couple of my classmates going green.

We used flip, which is a recording device. Throughout the recording we shot about six different scenes. once the scenes where finish, one of my fellow classmate name Eric edit our clip on flip software. The video above is our final clip.
This project was fun and enjoying. I was the camera lady. I didn't find any problems with recording the scenes. Nice job group!

What do you think of my blog?

Finale and Prezi

Today is class we had to more presenters name Eric and Brittany. Eric was the first presenter is presented a tool called Finale. Finale is a tool that you can present and create music. This music can be shared on your mp3, pc, blog etc. To understand Finale you have to know notes and have a music background. Finale costs up to $600.00 dollars, but you can get a discount if your a student, teacher, or member of a church. Brittany presented Prezi. Prezi is similar to Popplet. It's unlimited space to work with and share information. A downfall is the movements can get confusing and busy.

Presentations On November 8, 2011

In class we had two presenter Amy and Victoria. Amy and Victoria presented the tool KIDSPIRATION. Kidspiration is a tool use to label or catergorize materials. It strengthen word recognition, vocabulary and writing. Develop math skills with virtual math manipulatives. It's a great tool to get children involve in a group discussion. Also, it shows leadership. I wish the presenter would of explained it better, but overall the program is useful

Classroom Presentations Presented Nov. 1, 2011

Popplet~ is a good tool to use visual. In class I enjoy viewing Popplet. Popplet have four features you can present such as videos, pictures, quotes, and documents. Popplet can also be use to go over a lesson or compare work of others. However, you have to regitser and your limited to 6 popplet.

Story-jumper- Create own books that you can publish. There are sixteen pages limited. Story-jumper is a good way to illustrate artwork and teach a lesson. You have to register and purchase the program.

Wordle~Wordle is a free open source program. The more you write a word the me its important. It express your main points. However, its not very useful. If you don't plan on saving it on your usb drive or computer its pointless. Everything erase once you log off.

Overall these tools can be useful in early childhood education. The tools are another way of expressing learning.
