Curriculum Video

Here it is...The Systems of the Body! It's not perfect, but I learned a lot from creating it! There is music in the background, but it is not loud enough. I am not a fan of narration when you can not edit or pause it without starting over. I am constantly making mistakes! I loved making the movie, but definitely got frustrated at times!

A Reflection of My Professional Growth

This is a Voicethread that I created. It reflects much, but not all, of the things that I have learned in the EDUC 552 course that I am taking through Peru State College for my Masters in Education Program.

Twitter for Educators

I am excited to continue to learn about and use Twitter as a resource for an educator. I have been exposed to numerous links to articles, blogs, pictures, and ideas that can assist me in my classroom. I am one to take an idea and "give it a shot" the very next day if I'm excited enough about it! I love reading other educators blogs and finding out what they are doing! Such an amazing resource to be connected to educators all over the world! I'm still learning about Twitter and still get uneasy tweeting ideas wondering who is all reading this! I plan to continue using Twitter even after my course is finished. I hope to become more comfortable and confident. I think this is much more professional than I had ever imagined! I am amazed at the resources that are out there. I learned a lot from the people I followed. I read articles, looked at pictures, read blogs, found amazing websites, and even learned from my peers about some of the projects we had to complete for this course. As soon as someone tweeted their blog link, I usually checked it out to make sure I was on the right track. It is hard for me to choose just one person that I enjoy following. I recently just started following Richard Byrne and have to say that I am very excited to read his tweets. I love his blog and find myself browsing through it often. Twitter truly is a game changer and I'm glad to be a part of this online, instant feedback, and professional community.
