Course JournalAugust 26, 2010First day of class was great. It sounds like it’s going to be fun and I’m going to learnsome new technology! I am really excited! My professor seems really nice and down-to-earth and understanding. I agree with his style of teaching, I believe technologyas a form of teaching will help students learn more and keep them interested. I don’tlike to be lectured or read to for an hour or so. When you can create and visually seeyour assignments or tasks it helps to know you are doing what you should.We have our first assignment…the Wordle. This assignment doesn’t seem hard at alland actually sounds fun.Wordle was fun and easy to use. I didn’t like the way you had to keep starting overwhen you wanted to edit though. I think I will play with the software to create gifts.Until next time August 31, 2010Some of class introduced themselves through their Wordles today, including me. Igot chocked up when I spoke in class, especially about the divorce. But, now I ampassed that and moving on. It was neat to learn about someone in, not only, wordsbut images. For next class, we are to make a photo mosaic. This should be fun!The photo mosaic maker was also easy to use. I enjoyed this project. I would like todo it again with music.Until next time September 2, 2010Class introductions continued today with photo mosaics. It is interesting how muchsomeone will tell you through this project. I agree with what Professor Miller when hesaid that people tend to say more personally through these types of introductions.Its true about some of these students, you really would think some of the thingsthey said about themselves were true or at least hard to imagine.We have a reading assignment for next class and that’s about it.Until next time September 7, 2010Professor Miller highlighted more on why media is a good teaching tool and howeventually universities and colleges will be more active in online information asopposed to paper. We had class discussion about our opinions and experiences withonline courses we had taken. There are good and bad experiences. Professor Milleralso wants us to prepare to begin working on our sub-field media assignment. Itwas another interesting day of class and looking forward to the next.
Until next time September 9, 2010Class is beginning to focus on the building of the multi-media files. Professor Millerdefined items and gave examples of what could be used in our work. Class wasinteresting and again looking forward to another visit.Until next time September 14, 2010Professor Miller asked us to review our syllabus for changes and additions and againfocused on subfield media files. He has several requests for work to be completedand I hope I get everything done correctly. It’s starting to seem like a lot for me andI hope I am able to manage my low technical knowledge with what is expected.Until next time September 21, 2010Lots of information based on building the media files. This document seems like it’sgoing to be huge! I hope I can keep up with all of this.Until next time September 23, 2010We discussed the different classifications of the 15-20 images that are to be used forour next assignment. I don’t know if I will be able to actually take all new images forthis assignment. I’m not much of a photographer, just the amateur momma takingpictures of her kids. We’ll see what happens.Until next time September 28, 2010Prezi looks like fun!!Until next time September 30, 2010Prezi presentation was helpful and interesting; we received a hand out from outpresenter that will help with future work. I really enjoyed using this program I canreally see using this over and over in the future. I think this will be a really helpfulaid when I become a teacher. It’s really attention getting!Until next time
October 5, 2010This class was slow, seemed like a lot of definitions. I like the more media relatedstuff Until next time October 12, 2010Excited about our next guest speaker, this sounds like it’s going to be reallyinteresting…can’t wait!Until next time October 26, 2010Learned about voice-over and learned you should always save image URLs. Need towork on concept definition. Another good class!Until next time November 2, 2010I’m excited to see if I can use a video converter and audacity to mix some music andvoice over for future projects. We reviewed an example of a digital story fromllanogrande.org. I’m still not sure if I’m going to pull off this digital story.Until next time November 4, 2010Today we learned how to stream through power point. I’m not sure how I’m going touse this in my project. But at least I have another option for integration. Good class!Until next time November 9, 2010Today we talked about modifying our photostory by adding video. This sounds like itwill be easy to accomplish. We also talked about the cartoon we will be creating soonon xtranormal. I’m really excited about the cartoon, I have been looking forward tothis assignment.Until next time December 2, 2010Today we talked about our final project and uploading our multi-media file tophotoshare for submission. I can’t believe we are talking about our final projectalready; the semester has flown by so fast.
I have really enjoyed this class and I’m so excited to continue learning with ProfessorMiller in my independent study. I have learned so much and I’m excited to refine mylearning and polish my projects.

November 18, 2010 Fannie Escalante/SOC 4853/ 11-29-2010 Mindgate Media Assignment http://cnn.com/video/?/video/education/2010/11/23/sn.anti.bullying.cnnBullying has become quite an epidemic in our schools today; a frightening ingredient is the episode of suicide. The preceding videohighlights “some main points from the International Bullying Prevention Association’s recent conference.” The video not only givesinformation about the most common form of bullying, but it also gives resources for parents, students, and teachers alike. The videoalso gives ownership to students and gives them the power to take an active role in the prevention of bullying. What can be asked about this video? 1. What other forms of bullying are there? 2. What may cause someone to bully? 3. Do you know someone who is being bullied or someone who is a bully? 4. What other educational resources are available about the subject of bullying? 5. What type of programs can be created and or implemented in your own school to aid in the prevention/cessation of bullying? 6. Identify individuals who will be available to anyone who is being bullied, who has information about a bullying incident, or who has any ideas about preventing bullying.December 8, 2010Digital Storytellinghttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4YyBtAohwvg
