For our final assignment, I chose to improve some of the work I started with earlier in the course.  The difficulties in sharing my work from the school LMS were overcome by beginning to develop my own Moodle cloud platform, where in the future I hope to continue to showcase the work I am doing with […]

My lesson is based on a conversation I had with a colleague, prior to spring break.  We discussed the use of our 10 new iPads and the best way to introduce them to our students, who attend our program on a weekly basis for 2 hours.  We will also be hosting our board trustees later […]

Week 10: Activity 1 – Create a live-action video Monday, March 20th, 2017 I feel like such a slow learner.  Tonight I finally figured out how to get my videos and photos off my IPhone and onto my computer or IPad through Google Drive.  I can’t believe it took me so long – I’ve been […]

Last week I had a spike in my online teaching and learning curve.  It started with my foray into creating my own YouTube channel when I figured out that I needed a virtual space to host my video files if I wanted to share them on my blog.  Up until that point, I had no […]

Ok folks – the audio trouble I was having was a technical one I’ve had before on my computer.  I spent probably an hour fiddling with the settings and trying to get audio back up and running.  The problem started after simply putting my headphones into the jack – I was left suddenly with no […]

Hi! I thought I’d play a little with the free app – Voki to create an avatar to use on my school’s Moodle site.  I’ve taken the plunge and created an active wiki on my school LMS and am playing with my students as we work to create a space to share information about Kona […]

Hi All, I went into the link that Keith provided us to access free online audio content and found a great variety to choose from.  I decided to keep it simple and went with a classic Jack Johnson “Better When We’re Together” piece that was recorded during one of his 2013 concerts.  My intent is […]

I’ve been playing around quite a bit these days with the various programs – both online and on my computer, to learn to manipulate graphics and create enhanced visuals for my teaching.  It has taken both time and effort to figure things out; slowly but surely I’m getting it.  One of the big things I […]
