June 25, 2012 Summary

Reminder: Web 2.0 Project is due next class

Morning Session: Through an example created by Dr. Marcovitz, we saw that creating a short video does not require a lot of time. In the past, incorporating technology was more cumbersome. We also focused on telecollaboration. There are tons of projects on the web at iEARN and ePals. You can create a safe way to have students use email with adjustable filters by using ePals. See Moodle for Dr. Marcovitz's Chapter 9 help with HTML. Remember to save it as a Text Document!

Afternoon Session: We continued to work on HTML coding including the use of lists and tables. We looked at how to put our webpage on the Loyola server (student pages). Kompozer is a website authoring program where you can use HTML or WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get). We spent the rest of the time working on individual projects.
Next class: CSS

Perhaps my class could do a latin song and seek out communication from a Latin American school. We could then offer our advice if th... more

Our class usually does a compare and contrast essay about American winter holidays and Japanese winter holidays. We usually make up a letter written from a Japanese student about their holiday. Instead of making it up this time, we can actually have our 6th grade Language Arts group connect wit... more

What are some other telecollaborative ideas that you could implement into your classroom? Other than the ones that you shared in class.
