Finally, I have been able to download the drop box and tux paint.  Now, if I can get my bluetooth refiguration to download, I will be in business!  Technology--never boring.

I am having a hard time downloading the digital dopbox. I am getting a little irate about the situation. I have it downloaded but I can not access it. I never once got a pop up asking to open or run the thing. I also tried to download a school tool, tuxedo paint. I had the same problem. Maybe my computer is blocking it. Ugh!!!!!

Chapter 5 Reflection

This chapter was ok. The first time I went to college, I was studying to be a computer science engineer. Although that stint didn't last long, I did retain some of the information. The video was more interesting. The impromptu study on how children can learn the internet and to figure out English without speaking it, was wonderful. I knew that children had it in them. Where were the parents? I would think that they would be wondering what their child was doing at the whole in the wall. The children probably learned more since there were no adults.
Right now I am checking out Tux Paint. It seems pretty cool. I will let you know more later.

Chapter 4 and skype

The conversation on skype and chapter 4 had alot of the same content.  We talked about different "Universal Design Technology" tools to help every learner learn the way they need.  Some can be useful for the "smart" and some for the "retarded."  Technology is a good tool for everyone.


Jordan is my daughter. She is in Mrs. Watson's broadcasting class. I have included a link on my blog to go to their PV LOL casts. Look on the videos. These kids are really funny and

Chapter 3-video

To me, chapter three had a lot of words that basically said, when making a lesson plan you must get an idea, figure what you want them to learn, how are they going to learn the content, and how are the students going to show you that they got the material. The videos were much better. If only all our children were as articulate as Svitak. If only the adults were the same... She had many good points, all of which I agree. Children need to be heard. They are people, too. Sometimes they may seem "childish," but we do to. What would our world be like if at some point we were not "childish."

reflection chap. 2

Chapter two contained information on the different learning styles and the different factors that may effect the learning styles.  This chapter also introduced some "teachers" that named the different learning styles.  The next part of the chapter talked about technology through the years.  How a quill pen and slates were the first kind of technology and then things blossomed into computers and held devices with internet.  I enjoyed the timeline.  I liked seeing the different steps we took to get to today.
