Busy Bee

I can finally take a breath in class! For the past couple of meetings my classmates and I have been busy bees working on an interactive Power Point presentation. In this activity, I looked at linear equations and how to graph them. I created a learning tutorial along with an interactive quiz. This activity took a lot of learning and patience on my part, but it will definitely be a fun and useful tool for students in the classroom one day.

Be There or Be a Perfect SQUARE Root

This is the title of my first interactive spreadsheet. The past week our class was introduced to the Excel program. My spreadsheet will help my students memorize the perfect squares up to the number 13 which is a requirement for Algebra I. I might have had the most fun working with this program out of the far. I really do think lesson plans that will use an interactive spreadsheet in Excel will come in handy in giving my future classes a break from the norm.

Jumping for Joy about Digital Images

Goodness! I have learned a wealth of knowledge in the past couple of days in IT class. We have been working with digital images and how we can use them to enhance the learning environment in our classrooms. We worked on a digital image scavenger hunt and put our images into a Power Point presentation. Today we actually turned our images into a movie! How cool is that! I am loving learning all there is to learn about our digital image friends, and what all we can do with them.

My Wacky Wiki

Today in class we spent a majority of the time updating our wikispaces. To be completely honest, I was a little skeptical of all this wiki stuff, but slowly and surely I am developing a liking to these wacky little things. Here is a link too my very own wiki. Have fun and remember it is a work in progress!

Google Docs Are Cool

Today I was introduced to Google Docs. It has totally blown me away. It is cool that two of my friends and I can be working on the same word document at the same exact time on three totally different computers. WOW!
