Final Report On PLN
I use Symbaloo as my PLN to keep me organized. Everything is right there in front of me, just a click away.
The most used are things like
Facebook. This keeps me updated with my friends and family. This is my main search engine for all of my classes. I check all of my bank aaccounts online at any time. I check this everyday. This is my main email account.
PAWS This is the website that South Alabama has to show grades, holds, registration, etc. Yeah, it's pretty important. Yes, an online dictionary for people who can't spell like me :) I use this to watch all of the video's I could ever imagine and upload projects for the EDM 310 class every week.
I actually have a calendar type of organization on my symbaloo now. On Monday, Wednesday, and Friday I have certain classes that are online. These classes are grouped together. My Tuesday and Thursday classes are grouped together, and the rest is at the bottom. Of course, My Blog is top, right. :) I feel like I have FINALLY figured it out.

Summary Post C4K November and 12/5

C4K #8
This blog post was written by shawshaw24. She is in the 12th grade and wrote a very good post on constructive criticism. She said teachers should be motivated to teach, and students should be motivated to learn. If both parties would do just that one job, then life would be so much easier. She is an extremely talented writer. Her word usage and grammar were exceptional.

The students were learning about snails. They made a video about the different snail projects they had made. I have always been creeped out by snails, but I think these children have helped me over come my fear. :)

This post was about Flat Stanley. Flat Stanley is a paper doll that travels all around the world. The video is very cute. It just explains the reasoning behind Flat Stanley. He can go anywhere anytime he wants.

Elizabeth put a picture of the dress her mother made for her on her blog. She is a dancer, and said the crystals on the skirt really sparkle in the light when she moves. It was very creative.

Summary Post C4T Teacher #4

The post that I read was written by Martha Yim. She is a wife, mother, teacher, and business owner. In her post, she is stressing the importance of communication between teachers and parents. I think communication is critical for a child to be capable of learning. The school and can do it with the home-life helping, and the home-life cannot do it without the school. She made very good points about the parents not knowing anything about their children's education, and the teachers not knowing anything about the parents. Again, communication is critical when it comes to education.
