Computer Technology and Multimedia

This course EDUC 8823 has proven quite effective and relevant, thus far. I can see the potential of this application–Blogging, in the schools at multiple levels. Students can post, present, discuss and analyze comments and textual submissions online. Blogging can also prove to be a valuable research tool, as well. Students can be given a topic, discuss it online, and add relevant material to the Blog–ongoing. I need to see if it could serve as an electronic portfolio. Interesting…This course has opened up another, parallel world for me in education. Boy did I miss a lot of opportunities to reach my students! I can be so much more effective now. This year, my students will be rewarded with more resources to access and develop information. I believe this will empower them to participate, and seek more on their own.

Time will tell.

  1. Stephania , I too appreciated that this course made me more aware of ways to enrich student learning. That I had used this tool (blogging) for a good 3 years, and it never occurred to me that it was a collaborative tool is remarkable.

  2. ephemerati,

    Sometimes things are so class to us, that we…”can’t see the forest for the trees.” I have learned to use all of my available resources in many ways. I think we have so many things, that we ae often overwhelmed, and stick with the tried and true learning tools and resources.

  3. I share your views totally. Tools like this are adding incredible potentials to teaching and learning. Journal through life, keeping a continuous trail of events, learning and records are all very powerful. Can’t beat this. It requires that initial setup and you are on your way integrating the use of this constructivist tool for collaboration on projects in education. Students love it and respond well to it.

  4. Research tools,
    I never thought of using blogs as a sort of research tool. I could possibly even use it for my KAM. As relevant information is found, it could be added to a blog or wiki really. The potential use of these devices as research tools are really something to think about. Others could comment adding ideas that take your research and thoughts into different directions. The collaboration and feedback could be priceless.

  5. I have been browsing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like
    yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all site owners and bloggers
    made good content as you did, the internet will be a lot more useful than ever before.

    Is anyone else having this problem or is it a problem on my end?

    I’ll check back later on and see if the problem still exists.

  16. You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be actually something
    that I think I would never understand. It seems too complex and very broad for me.

    I’m looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!

  18. I apologize for taking a year, to respond to your post! My original reply did not go through, and I never checked.
    I really appreciate your comment. I try to be as authentic, and as real as possible. There is too much “fake and phony,” in the world, right?
    Look for some updates, and new resources in the New Year. Mention this post, and there will be a $10, discount for you on some products.
    Happy holidays! …and thanks again.
