Chapter 11 Reflection: Audiovisual Technologies

This was a good chapter with lots of information.  Many audiovisual tools to support learning and teaching.  Some ideas I hadn't thought of yet or I have forgotten about using. I think many teachers are afraid to use technology and not realizing that have been using some type of technology all along. Maybe afraid to try something new? Some technology they use may be outdated, but still technology.  And some technology tools are in the closet or have been on the shelf getting dusty, new or old.
I am not sure I have a favorite audiovisual technology, I can see where most if not all are great ways to intrigue learning.

Chapter 10 Reflection: Using the Web for Teaching and Learning

Chapter 10 has alot of information in it that I think is useful. Some of the listed online sights I will be checking into.  I didn't know that a wiki could be altered. Kids at school use Wikipedia all the time.
E-Pals sounds fun, might be something we try in our room, we could always use extra communication skills in our room. I think the kids would have fun with it, if we can get it okay ed.
The teacher that I'm with set up her own blog after I showed her how to do it! It looks good and she is adding more information everyday, I think the parents will appreciate it too.
I am enjoying this class, just worried about this power point since this will be my first!!!!!

Chapter 9 Reflection: The Internet and the World Wide Web

This chapter was interesting about the Internet and the web and how it actually works.  It is amazing how it all comes together and works! You can get so many new ideas from browsing the web, different sites and links. Streaming audio and video would be a neat thing to do in the classroom with older kids, than the age we have in our room. Lot of potential in teaching and learning through the Internet, so many tools and services.
The skype chat with Ms. Mimmi was interesting, sounds like a busy lady.
