Reflection of Friday's class

Friday: 20 July 2012

I really enjoyed learning about the digital photostory. This is a program I have been meaning to use in my classes, but haven't really taken the time to learn. So I am excited to begin learning how to do it and trying to figure out ways to use it in a Freshman English Comp course.
I also was able to create a form in the wiki to use for my first day of class in my English courses. This will be the first time I try it so I'm excited to see how it works and how the students like it. I always hold my classes in computer labs, so instead of having them fill out index cards, I will have them do this digital survey instead. I imagine I could also create tests using that survey and create polls too. I can't wait to come up with lessons to use it for!
I didn't have any trouble creating the wiki. That was fun. The most difficult thing is trying to keep track of all the new websites I've joined! I have all these new user names and passwords and I'm still not sure the purpose of some of them. Twitter is something I've NEVER liked! I don't know if I'll use it much, but if there is a way to link all of them to ONE main page, that would be ideal. Instead of having to go to each page! But I'm curious to see which one I end up using the most. I like Flikr, but only because I love editing photos in instagram and uploading them to flikr, but honestly. Who will ever see my pictures there? Would I ever use that for a class? I'm not sure yet, but I hope to find out.
