Vacaciones

Hola, me llamo Maria. Tengo 18 anos y vivo en Nueva York. Nueva York es una cuidad que nosotros cojemos adventaje sin saber cuantas cosas positivas tengamos a nuestro acesso.

Pero lo que no me gusta es que ya estoy cómoda en la ciudad y me gusta viajar y ver diferente ciudades y países. El pais que me facina es India. Ese es el país que será un sueño para yo…

Experience free/open source courses

The course I chose to take and review was on Alison.com.  It was a short course on personal health and fitness.  It was divided into 5 learning modules with a varying number of topics per module.  I covered the first 5 topics which was all of module one.  It gave an overview of what health is and how it is defined differently (physical, emotional, mental) depending on who you are talking to.  It was presented in a PowerPoint type fashion.  You read the…

Reflection is not just for mirrors anymore.

Where were you last year? Where are you now? Where do you want to be in a year?

Three questions that can stop you in your tracks.

In September, I present to the students my goals for the year. I look at them periodically throughout the year to see if I'm on track. More times than not, I'm nowhere near them. The rosy glow of September is deceiving; so my original plans don't take into consideration the set backs along the way. While it's a humbling exercise, it's…

Virtual Reality

Beginning this week’s learning, I was definitely a proponent of using virtual worlds in the classroom. I thought it would be difficult to find resources that emphasized the disadvantages of virtual realities. However, there is a lot of research that points to potential downfalls of using virtual environments.

I found that just about every advantage could be spun into a disadvantage and vice-a-versa. To me, virtual worlds seem to…

“La España Plural, 500 años después”

El autor demuestra en sus artículo “La España plural, 500 años después”  como ciertas características socioculturales  de Galicia and Andalucía  que han contribuido a la discriminación y rivalidades territoriales que existe entre otras regiones vecinas como Cataluña y el País Vasco.

Según el artículo desde principios de la historia Galicia fue llamada  “Dinis Terrae”, “Fin del Mundo” por los romanos. Esto se debió a que Galicia estaba bajo el régimen “galaico- leones y con una…

ENTRADA



Al crecer, yo nunca tuve un profesor que inspira o me ha influido hasta que estaba en mi último año de escuela secundaria. Su nombre era señora Fermino y ella creo en mí , incluso cuando todo el mundo tenía la esperanza perdida. Yo estaba fallando todas mis clases y yo estaba muy atrás en créditos . Mi madre no se desanimó , se acercó a la escuela y le pidió a mi consejera para ayudarme graduarse a tiempo . La señora Fermino me sentó y sinceramente me dijo que esto era muy importante…

Virtual Reality

After doing research during this lesson on virtual reality (VR), I can say my opinion has shifted some to the other side of supporting VR in the classroom.  When I initial think of VR, I think of the sci-fi stuff you see in the movies such as the Matrix.  To me that is VR.  Living in another world.  But in reality, it is not.  It can be as simple as taking a virtual tour of the something.  I think VR will keep the students more engaged in learning if used in the…

Acceptable Use Policies

The National Education Association has outlined 6 key elements that make an effective Acceptable Use Policy. Reading through several AUPs, I found that most had these elements. Though online, my school doesn’t provide a distinct AUP online, there are a great number of them from other schools, which as a whole I would liked to briefly discuss.  Majority speaking, by each having 6 elements I would say that they have effective AUP. Most  include a disclaimer to legally protect…

Blog Review on Social Networking/Digital Citizenship

Social Networking.  Does it have a place in the classroom?  I am torn on this issue.  While I see the advantages to it such as being able to still have school on bad weather days or while traveling for a vacation, I do see some drawbacks to it as well.  I have talked to several individuals about homeschooling and the cyber school areas.  For those which homeschool, they love it because it gives them flexibility.  They can take family vacations during the year…

4 Apps that helped me lose 40 pounds.

On the one year anniversary of joining the gym, I wanted to celebrate my accomplishment and take a look back at the journey so far. I realize my phone has been the most important tool to my success.

Full disclosure: it wasn't just the apps that helped me lose weight, there was some sweat involved. (Actually lots of sweat. There's no pill to make this happen; if there was Oprah would have invented it. She had to lose weight the hard way and so do…
