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.

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.
