Tool 6

Tool 6 is awesome because it gets students talking to each other about what they've learned and can save this as evidence of learning. I would use a student blog for open house or as a technological portfolio. The next tool that I would incorporate is skype so children can actually view other classrooms outside their own. How exciting for students to create pen pals or explore different learning communities. What a fantastic tool to learn that students can travel around the world or think outside the box.

Tool 5

Tool 5 is my very favorite tool..... children can greatly benefit from creating their own video production based on any content learned. When children design and create a video to demonstrate what they've learned and share it to benefit students, the learning community widens. The motivation to learn and share increases as does each student's knowledge and how to communicate it with their peers or parents.

The wordle is a fun mosiac that motivates learners of words to create pictures..or even frame them.

Flicker account

Now I've completed Tool 3, by adding a woordle to my blog and by creating an account in Flicker.
Searching the beautiful photos and being able to select one of them and save fun!


Tool 2 - commenting on my blog

Tool 2 is now complete, at last.

Sometimes when I am using the 11 tools, surfing blogs, or trying to create a computer freezes. This is so frustrating, because it delays me completing my assignment and prevents me from moving on....
