Voicethread: Thing with students #1


I actually follow a few blogs on Tumblr and was wondering what it is really. I might start up a personal one. I'm not sure. Really cool to play around with it though.

I am chewing on 17 Things Round 2:

Thing 15- Voicethread

Ok. This is by far the coolest yet! They keep getting better. I am going to try and make one this weekend. We are doing an art project in Spanish and this would be amazing to use. I requested an educator account. I'm so excited about this!

Thing 14-Wiki

I would really like to learn more about moodle and implement it in the classroom. I think that would be amazing! I actually set up a wetpaint wiki but I think I will go with wikispaces for educators because this one does have way too many ads.

So in summary, I think Moodle could be extremely valuable in our department but we need some training on it. I hope to start a wiki or something up for my blog soon.

Thing 13 animoto

I love animoto! I could totally use this in class. It is ridiculously easy. I think it would be fun to take videos from other countries. I did email for an educator code and never heard back from them unfortunately. This would actually be a great idea for a final project. I just assigned an art project and I wish I would have had them do something like this with their art instead.

I love my garden even more now!

Thing 12

I like the creative commons site. I actually just did a project where my students submitted videos to promote foreign language learning. They were not allowed to use music that was copyrighted. This would have been amazing to use. I think it could definitely help them understand copyright laws...I think it coud help me as well.
