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? Please post by Thursday, April 23 @ 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 audioboo.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 Friday, March 27th @ 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! (Well, actually, in 2010 they were little more than half your age, now these students are probably in 8th grade!) 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!

Scanadu: The medical Tricorder from Star Trek is here



Just 2 years ago, a man was arrested for falsely claiming to have manufactured a tricorder-like device. He admitted to entirely making it up! But as a testimony to how quickly reality catches up with fantasy nowadays, less than two years later the Tricorder does exist. And it works!



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 would love to become a doctor with one of these devices at my disposal.

Find an article, 1 per week minimum (first one due the week ending 2/20/2015), 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. 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:

Now that you have logged in and gotten the feel for posting a blog, please use a blog entry to share your thoughts.



Express your opinions on how things are going at Allied and, specifically, in Computer Applications class. What do you like? What do you dislike? What would you change if you were in charge?



Try to respond as soon as you can, so people can begin to share experiences. As fellow students begin to post responses, explore posting comments back to them. Make the comments 'meaty', meaning put some thought into it and don't just do a "Yeah, what she said!" Post your blog responses by February 18 @ 10:00PM. NOTE: Blog deadlines are not as strict as other assignment deadlines.
