Several times during the course teacher made videos have been posted to offer assistance on a topic and recently, a whole section of instruction on the use of tables in Word was presented via video downloaded from a website. One of the amazing aspects of this activity was that NOT ONE STUDENT reacted to/commented on this new mode of instruction in any way!



"Hey, Mr M, that was cool!!"



"Can you believe that guy, not even teaching us something in class before expecting us to use it on assignments??"



"There was a video??"
(Actually, I think I heard that one!)



"The video was amazing - how do you do that?"



"This class is bad, and that video was a real piece of ..."



HAVE YOU EVER BEFORE HAD A TEACHER PRODUCE A VIDEO TO TEACH YOU A TOPIC???



PLEASE use a blog entry to give me some feedback on your take on the experience. Positive, negative and everything in between. Offer suggestions for improvement; should it be done again, should it be done regularly?



Include an embedded video in your post and an example of something you find useful. This could be a video made by you or found on YouTube (or elsewhere on the web).



Please post by Tuesday, December 9 @ 10:00PM.

Created at audioboom.fm. Use headphones in Room 110.



Can you make one? Yes, you can!

Assignment: Work with your pamphlet building group to create a 3-5 minute podcast (only audio on this one) (perhaps audioboom.fm will be useful?) talking about your experiences during the pamphlet building process. DON'T SAY ANYONE'S LAST NAME! Check with your class audio experts if you need help!



Write out (or at least plan out) a basic script before you begin to record your podcast. Perhaps you could explore a 'mock' interview show (like mine, but with more real people!) Remember that people listening may not know what you did in class, so 'Set the Stage' for listeners by including details. These podcasts will be listened and commented by Mr. M and some other teachers. As you begin to hear podcasts for your fellow students please add meaningful comments. Each student should post the team podcast on their own, classblogmeister blog.



Post your podcasts ASAP, but make sure they're posted by Tuesday, November 18th@ 10:00pm.

I came across this great resource. Don't be thrown by the fact that these contributors may be a little more than half your age! In addition to the comment lessons there are some great simple hints on using HTML tags as well. (NOTE: to use 'raw' HTML, you must be in text edit mode.)

Here is a sample audio podcast. Played on my phone while being recorded in QTP on my Mac. (Could that be done the other way around?) (Answer in comment to this blog entry!) Then uploaded to iPadio to create the embed code used to publish here!

 Safely Flying Ebola Infected Patients



The first patient transport isolator for aeromedical evacuation, called the Air Transport Isolator, was developed for the U.K.'s Royal Air Force in the 1970s and also used by the U.S. military for decades. The RAF recently used the same system to fly a British Ebola patient home onboard a military transport aircraft for treatment. But the SARS outbreak prompted the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as well as a number of private air ambulance services worldwide to develop many more isolation units capable of moving infectious disease patients under a variety of conditions. This article explains how technology developed during a previous pandemic is being used to safely transport Ebola infected patients.



I am a high school student in a Science/health related program taking a technology course, so of course something that involved technology and science interested me! I hope I never need to be transported with an infectious disease, but I'm glad to see safe transport methods being developed.

Find an article, 1 per week minimum (first one due the week ending 9/26/2014), Any article that you can connect to computers, technology, Internet (++health care!) is allowed.  Put a link to the article, a brief summary and what about the article caught your eye/interested you, and a proper APA reference citation. I used Citation Machine to construct my reference. You could also use/double check with the OWL Site linked from the school website. Post in an article on YOUR blog.



My sample begins:

In this case, I found a related video (You won't always have a related video!), so I embedded it here:
