      I have always been a fan of powerpoints. I’m not really a fan of people reading off the powerpoints though. This is why I chose to fill my powerpoints with bullets and pictures. I keep in mind that some students may be visual learners and others are...

        I brainstormed a while about this presentation, as I said my passion was animals, but I felt it was far too broad to speak about for only 3 minutes. So I went with the animal that has had the most impact on my life, dogs! I spoke about my two dogs...

          During my presentation last Friday, I realized a few things. I was not as well prepared as I thought I was. I had created a presentation but it was not on the right topic. I think I presented the material decently, however, I noticed myself...

            I think having a layout of what my trip to Italy worked well in my lesson. I thought having an example of what I just taught could be helpful to everyone to really see what I was talking about and for the lesson to come together. For next time I...

                    I was really nervous for this presentation due to the fact that my topic was very "different" than most of the other presentations. But as i said before rather than me talking about hiking i thought that i would try something different and...

                      For my lesson, pictures worked well in my lesson. Having pictures of the filming locations on a map, a mock Americanized version logo of Skam, and the text messages/Instagram profiles added a lot of life to my lesson since visuals are...

                        Hi Allison, I can only speak for myself, but I think the Four Corners activity was super engaging and quite enjoyable! It was definitely different than what most of our other classmates were doing and I'm glad that there was a break in...

                          Getting to teach about something that I care about was actually not a very difficult task. At first, I was nervous that I would say something silly or forget what I was going to say, but, I totally did fine. I think I had imagined that following...

                            I have been exploring this great program called "Processing", now on version 3, which is an opensource coding program that encourages the use of technology to create art. A lot of the coding in this program is reminiscent...

                              Hey Toni, I love your design! great work! You ask some very interesting questions, and the answers rely on what subject you teach and how posed you are to implement technology in the classroom not only as a tool for learning for for exploration,...

                                I have finally figured it out - it's all in the "Script Run Type". If you select "ticking" then the program runs continuously. However - if you select "MouseEnter" then the program will be active while the Mouse...

                                  I think that technology is supported by the community. If people were not as interested and dependent on technology (especially their phones) then businesses like Apple would have become the empire that it is today. It is also important to look at...

                                    Toni, You have asked really good questions here. What do you think? How and why might you use TurtleBlocks in your classroom?

                                      Teaching about something I am passionate about was great. I have never discussed to people my love for the New York Knicks and it was great to show my pride for them. In my presentation, I really liked how I kept the bullet points short and...

                                        Skyler, I am really interested in the insights you had about the role of community in this process.

                                            Skyler, This is a powerful (and well argued) statement about the role of literacy in our lives and the relationship between learning computer programming and learning another human language. I loved this:  The significance of this...

                                              Thank you so much. I think it must be especially hard for younger kids to work with programming because they are used to a lot of parental support (less responsibility) and being constantly rewarded (any type of frequent signs of gratification...
