Final Reflection on ECMP 455

Filed under: Education — Tags: , , , — debyj @ 3:25 pm

Here is a video that gives a reflection of what I have learned from this class and what I look forward to learning in the future.  I wanted to put more photos and transitions on it, but I had a horrible time trying to get Windows Movie Maker to function for more than 5 minutes at a time.  Has anyone ever come across a great online movie-maker program?? I would really like to try something else, but I also do not want to put $$ into it!

I uploaded my video onto youtube but it was about 10 seconds too long, so my closing sentence got cut off!  The last sentence is: I look forward to continuing my learning about technology and education and hope to stay in touch with my classmates and continue learning from them for many years to come!

Hope you enjoy the movie!

Interview with Julie Lindsay

Filed under: Education — Tags: , , , — debyj @ 4:16 pm

My much awaited interview finally took place a few days ago so I am now able to blog about Julie and all the of the exciting things she is doing to enhance the educational and technological world!

I have included my skype recording if you would like to view it. Unfortunately, I did not realize that I should have used headphones so there is an echo evident when Julie speaks in the conversation. I also had some trouble with my dogs barking when my husband came home. Even though I wrote him a note not to bug me, he still tried to peak into my conversation and make a silly face thinking I was talking to my sister. Evidently, I would change a few things for next time!

Julie Lindsay is currently living in Beijing, China where she is Information Technology and E-Learning Coordinator at Beijing (BISS) International School. I have found some of her resources very valuable. Her blog is connected to her Diigo account and she has it set up so that every week her bookmarks are posted to her blog. I enjoy looking at her blog weekly to use some of these resources. She knows a lot about what is going on in the web 2.0 world and is using these tools in classrooms and proving they are useful! I would encourage anyone in Education to have a look at her blog to hopefully learn something new and transfer it to the classroom!

Thanks Julie for sharing your story with me and letting me know about some of the exciting things you are doing to enhance education!
