Last Blog

I can't believe that this is the last blog that I have to write. This class taught me so many useful skills. At first I was regretting taking this class, but I really enjoyed it and I learned a lot from it. I really hope that there will be another class similar to this one that I can take in the future as technology changes, as it so often does. I am so glad to have learned about all of the programs and also all of the websites that we were introduced to throughout the lessons. I know that when I do my self evaluation my numbers are definitately going to increase in all areas.

Tapped In

I did not realize that there were so many things that you could do on tapped in. It is really neat. I really like all of the ways to communicate thoughts and actions. It is a lot to remember though. This is really a great tool to use with a classroom. The instructor was even saying that she uses the TI for homework for her students since she gets the emails. It is so neat how you can have private sessions for your classroom alone that is a great way to teach a lesson. I hope that I remember everything that I learned today, so that I can utilize it in my classroom.

Hands on 10

While I was doing hands on 10 I realized that my assignments are now taking half the time. However, this assignmen was a little frustrating for me. For me the mail merge was what took me a while. For some reason I would have duplicate names on the greeting line or a field that was supposed to change for each letter was not. It took me quite a few tries to figure out what I was doing, but eventullay I got it. I think that that was the first time in a short while that I had so much trouble figuring out something so simple on one of the hands on assignments.

Coming to an end

I cannot believe that in less than 2 weeks class will be over and not to mention I am so behind on my blogs. I am very proud of the progress that I have made in this course. I actually have fun looking for things to add to my portfolio. I did not realize how much time flies when you are focused on that type of project. There are so many possibilities when creating a webpage. I am glad that I have learned skills that I will be able to utilize. There have been many courses where I have wondered what the purpose of the course is, thankfully, this is not one.
