Thing #11.5 Evaluation

1. What were your favorite discoveries or exercises on this learning journey?
I always like finding new things. My favorite part was going thru YouTube with my daughter and seeing all her favorites then creating my own YouTube with my son on a subject I actually teach. My surprise has been 28 viewers.
2. How has this program assisted or affected your lifelong learning goals? It does help me to see that you can learn something new every day on the web
3. Were there any take-a-ways or unexpected outcomes from this program that surprised you? I will be using the computers a lot more next year with the students with doing project based learning.
4. What could we do differently to improve upon this program’s format or concept? I do not have any insight on improvement but do thank you for setting it up.

Thing #11 Digital Citizenship

I started with the cool cats but first paragraph and I am stuck The are quoting a survey My question of who US the world ?? how many surveyed ?? 5, 500?? Then the kicker 2005 wow 5 year ago keep reading 87% used the internet what about the 13 % have not??
Ok so with these number of high school using the web the question is do they know how to “how to validate sources” then it jumps to the 31% of adults who are "Elite Tech Users." ,again a lot of questions here. I thought this would be a good article but I she is loosing me with her limited research and old information Yes we all need to talk about how to use the web effectively and so often .
Ok digital literacy and the class room
At least it is 2008 Ok so she said our schools only let our student see some of the web That district sensor out so much. Haven’t school done this for years. Can the students get any book in the library? Do literature classes only teach with particular book? In Math class we use protective problem when studying multiplication than the word problems all require multiplication. In science the experiments all have a predictable out come. We are teaching with standards. As the students mature we open it up wider and teach them to think critically but we can not do it all as once so true is the web.
OK ISTE should be good they are the standard they were last updated 2007 and have always called for safe legal and responsible use of information and personal responsibility Yes and critical Thinking , Problem solving, and decision making, Sounds like what I expect out of a good math students .

Thing #10 Virtual Worlds

Second life is a great way to get students into the action of learning I love that the avatar slumps over when the students is not engaged. It also seem great for the virtual field trips. Taking studnets to new places.

Thing #9 Slideshare

There is a reason not to leave this till the last of the summer I was not finding many of these post but posting your presentation to an online site is a great Idea for traveling nothing to carry and nothing to sync makes for thing to be so much easier It will make it work for the students as well because help with what they can bring in for a project .

Thing #8 Screencast

Screen capturing software is wonderful. I have purchased snag it years ago and find I use it a lot
I also like it when you can capture the screen actions.

Thing #7 Video Resources

I liked the video viewing but what I found to be most helpful was the copy right video It is hard to teach the student fair use. I am going to be trying a project the first nine weeks of school and will be sure to teach fair use.
