FYI folks, i’m not a big dirty snob, i just cannot comment on blogs for some reason. I do apologise but i have been very interested to read many of your entries and appreciate all your comments on mine!
This would be great for parent teacher nights, and open days etc. You could make a slide show of the kids work to have playing on the White board while people tour the classroom etc. Is it some thing i would use on a daily basis??? no, but i do love a good slide show!
How would you use this stuff in a classroom other than for a bit of fun making a song? perhaps making the song about a topic you are learning and structuring the lyrics like poetry may tie it in to the curriculum but its not something you could do regularly. You could however edit specific tracks to signal pack up in 5 minutes etc but why do that when you can download them all done for you???
From what i’ve gathered i think Diigo would be great, especially for tracking sites for lesson planning and the like…. however as i cannot make the darn thing work all this is speculation from hearsay….. sadface
I think this would be a very handy tool. Not only to follow blogs and links as a teacher, but also to have on the interactive white board and follow blogs and feeds related to current classroom topics. Finding new ways to engage kids in reading is always a plus.
I think blogging as a class would be a great way to keep parents involved in the classroom. It could be done by different students for each subject as even as an extension literacy activity for those who finish quickly. Keeping the parents in the loop is always a good thing, especially when they don’t have to physically come in to see what the kids are up to
I’m not really sure if i would personally use edmodo in the classroom. I can see its applications in that it would be exciting for the kids, its appears like facebook and is easy to use and you can set their homework using the assignment feature. Perhaps it would be good for older kids but i don’t think it would be all that useful for primary aged students
here are some more instagram pics after i have applied filters
So due to my swanky new iphone, i am blogging about instagram this week. Its an app that i love…. you apply filters to your photos and post them like you would facebook status updates. You follow your firends and see their life in pictures
Here are some before and after:
