Google Apps

I really struggled creating my Google Site; especially the calendar and editing a pre-made template.  I eventually had to abandon the pre-made template because I could not figure out how to change the picture of the "teacher" nor how to remove "Mrs. Smith's classroom" from the sidebar.  I don't think my site looks too good, the template would have been much better, but I wanted to concentrate on the requirements before I got it to look "pretty." I like color so I was disappointed that the…See More

Virtual Reality

Now that you have researched the view opposite of yours, how have your thoughts changed?Not really; I think VR is a valuable technology but it needs to be used in moderation.  If something tangible is available, I would not substitute something virtual for it.Do virtual worlds offer more advantages over more traditional learning environments?I would say that whether virtual worlds offer more advantages over traditional environments all depends on what the subject matter is.  Art for example, is…See More

"Henry, I think suicide would be an extremely tough subject to try as your first Social Networking lesson; bullying would be almost as important.  For some reason, I thought you had to be 18 to have a Facebook account, but I guess not. …"

"I think it would have really been neat to have a pen pal that was in a foreign country!  It's nice that the class as a group has a posting for what they are looking for, instead of leaving it up to individuals to write about themselves."

"Ambur,    I was also shocked by the average age of the social network user. I am actuallly having a difficult time believing that stat and will see why the data is as so. I could see the data being skewed based on which social networking…"

Social Networking and Digital Citizenship

What have I learned that I was not previously aware of?I did not realize that cyber bullying was such a problem but that's probably because my only experience  has been in the business world.  Not to say that it couldn't happen in the business world, but the consequences of bullying someone at this level would be severe.  I would hope that most employees had enough common sense and maturity to not do it in the first place, but if they didn't, hopefully the threat of termination would keep them…See More

"Hi Jabon, I agree that Chris and Alyson helped me understand the problem of cyber bullying quite a bit this week.  I am glad you found their discussion helpful too.  I think it's interesting that you said "at least in theory we…"

Ondalee commented on Ambur Halla's blog post Acceptable Use Policies
"It seems as though most of the AUPs have a clear unacceptable uses section, in fact, it seems to be the most direct and in depth section of the majority of the AUPs I have come across. I find it perplexing that many (including SF's) AUPs are…"

Acceptable Use Policies

SF's Acceptable Use Policy and Internet Rules of Use meet a lot of the standards set by the National Education Association, but not all. The preamble explains why the policy is needed, the goals of the policy, and that employees need to adhere to the general code of conduct of the company.  It does not include any information on the "process of developing the policy." The definition section is…See More

Bloom and Marzano

This week's activities have encouraged me to add more theory behind my lesson planning and instruction.  The first area I need to improve in is catering more to the visual learners.  A long time ago I had a supervisor who liked flow charts and I had to create one for every major work process we had using Visio.  A challenge to this was that I was the only one with the Visio software so I printed them for the supervisor to see.  I don't need to see things to understand them, so I provided these…See More

My lesson plan and Bloom's Revised and Digital Bloom's Taxonomy

While researching the differences between Bloom's Revised Taxonomy and Digital Bloom's Taxonomy, I first thought of my lesson plan on "Re-cancellations."As background, I teach employees how to make specific changes to health insurance policies.  When coverage under a policy is no longer needed, a cancellation is processed and unused premium is refunded to the insured.  Sometimes a refund is sent to the insured and later a payment the insured made for coverage is returned as insufficient funds. …See More
