This year I have learned that having a personal learning network is a big part of being successful. I talked to a lot of people that got to where they were today because somebody helped them get there. There are innumerable Web 2.0 tools that you can use for organization, projects, or to connect with people. I liked using storybird to create stories online. I also liked using some of the tools that allow you to make a powerpoint type project. There were a few tools that I found hard to use or not very fun, but for the most part the tools we used were very useful. This class was different than all of the other classes I had taken before.

Google Site

We just finished working on a long term project about our passion. I made a website about medicine because that is the field I want to work in when I grow up. I added the history of medicine, different jobs in the field, and some major discoveries in the last decade. https://sites.google.com/a/vmbulldogs.com/medicine/

Our most recent project was to make a digital book using Storybird. Storybird allows you to use artwork to make a picture book about something. You use the pictures they have, but you have to create the story. The only thing I didn't like about this tool was that you had to circle your story around the artwork that was available and that you could only use one person's artwork for one story. I made a story about an elephant moving to a new home. Here is my story.

Today we had our semester test. We had to create a Voki for the PLN class. A Voki is an avatar that you can customize. You can decide what it looks like and what it says. This was a fun project.

We just finished doing a project with a partner. My partner was Amy who is from Philly. We decided to use Quizlet to make flashcards. Quizlet is a website that allows you to make flashcards and use flashcards other people have made to study things. We made flashcards with music terms on them. It was quick and really easy to use. I know some of my friends use this website to make flashcards for other subjects as well. http://quizlet.com/3470338/piano-flash-cards/

This week we used a cool tool called Pixton. It allows you to make comics about anything. It lets you make characters, design backgrounds, and make different types of comics. I made a comic about some of the things I like to do.

A New Way of Learning

For the past week we have been working on a project for ISTE's technology committee. We have been sharing about having laptops and how they help in schools. We made a prezi. Prezi is a great web tool. It allows you to make a poster type thing, and it lets you make a path and it zooms in on each part of the poster. It is great for presentations.
Our prezi is about all of the tools a computer allows a person to have. We listed some of the tools we have used this year.
