Art Criticism

From coma to consciousness….

When there is a clash between creation and chaos at incomprehensible demands, the artist can only afford to hit out frantically in undeterred passion. Reeling under the the flings and stings of cancer, Sandip Ghosh could push himself from the fringes of oblivion by virtue of the psychic force, his mastering impulse, which prevented his senses from getting blighted and battered. This emotional refusal to resign to the inevitable finds inimitable release in…

tool ate,I hittheenterkey,but, retreading that post I can't believe all the typos in it. And it's too hard Togo back and edit. think maybe I'll have to stick too larger keyboard (one I don't have to look at) and a mouse for editing....if this didn't have so many self correcting features,I'd be even more hopeless.

Final capstone entry

I don't really know what ore there's to say. But, I'm in a motel breakfast room typing on an iPada, so this is kind of an experiment for me in using that tiny keyboard....most of my weblog entries to date, in fact, perhaps all , have been done on a standard 103 key, full sized keyboard. right now I don't even own any sort of computer of my own....I have an iPad and laptop belonging to the school systems, my wife has a net book, and we just hav feature phones. I do note that the letter I… Continue

PaperSlide Videos get kids Communicating, Collaborating and Creating!

As a fun activity in the short time we had between the end of PSSA's and the beginning of Marking Period 4, I challenged my 7th grade Mechanicsburg Middle School Pre-Algebra kids to research and create paperslide videos relating to a topic they had ALREADY learned during the year.  Prior to beginning, I showed the students what a paperslide video was, how it was made and what it should look like by USING paperslide examples. 

I allowed the students to create their own groups of 2 or 3…

So Much Has Changed

I had the opportunity this week to speak with Dr. Rita Girondi, the owner of Training Masters, Inc. Her company produces the Klickers system demonstrated in the video above. When I was in school (too many years ago), multimedia meant cheesy filmstrips narrated with cassette tapes. Now, it's PowerPoint slides with remotes where students can vote on the correct answer to questions. 

We had a great discussion and we touched on the fact that it's…

Education Classes

Being a college student and going through the education program and taking all the classes needed for education can be stressful for me at times. I always have moments where I feel like I have so many things that need to be done and so many things to be learned that it does put a certain amount of stress on me. At first, especially when I don't understand how to do something I have the sense of feeling like I would be a failure as a teacher. I always have put a lot of pressure on myself and…

entrada cinco lo variable

Hoy, ayudé a mi amigo Ramón. Enseñé a el la gramática y la estructura de párrafos. El es buen estudiante y trabaja duro. Es difícil entender los principios complicados de la escritura. Tuve que exponer las partes de un párrafo: la oración temática, el cuerpo y la ultima oración. Pasamos por un paquete que nos ayuda a explicar los objetivos del tema. Al fin del paquete había una mini prueba, desafortunadamente el no sacó buena nota. Este solo significa que el puede mejorar sus habilidades en…

Blob 5

En la escuela secundaria tomé mi primera clase de español.  La profesora era una mujer muy simpática que recién había mudado del sur de España.  Cuando supo que tuve un nivel de español elevada para mi edad, se puso tan emocionada a veces que me encontraba después de clase y me hablaba y hablaba.  Como nunca había escuchaba un acento de castellano fuera de la manera chilena de hablar, yo la miraba con ojos grandes y una cara de nerviosa.  Y no entendía ni una palabra.   

Cuando una…

Me da pena que no haya podido prestar tanto tiempo a mi área de servicio que quisiera.  Tengo un conflicto de horario—irónicamente, durante las únicas horas que la clínica de Good Samaritan Touch está disponible para estudiantes que quieren dar servicio medical, tengo un curso preparándome para un examen que determina la posibilidad de mi carrera de medicina.  Así que no he tenido la oportunidad para conocer bien mi campo de servicio, el lugar donde prestaba servicio, o las personas que…

Student Presentations without PowerPoint

I have been recently trying to find new ideas to have my students learn through technology.  I have most recently had my students create a budget presentation in PowerPoint and share them with each their classmates not only through a presentation, but also on the class moodle page.  The students took pride in this project and learned a lot more about budgeting than I could teach them.

What other ways have you recently had your students present their information that they learned other…

Flipped Classroom Part 2

A piece of software that I have found helpful in creating a future Flipped Classroom is the app ShowMe. My students have created a few tutorials with this app already. It gave the students the most enthusiasm that I have seen from kids in regard to fractions. They loved the process. 

Our steps were: 

1. They needed to pick a particular fraction that they were…

Virtual Classrooms, Games, and Simulations

I have been exploring the benefits of virtual classrooms, games, and simulations in a learning technologies graduate class. Anyone have experience with these technologies at the high school level? 

I teach high school chemistry and have used a virtual chemistry lab for 2-3 experiments per year for the last four years.  There are set labs that students can work on from a lab manual or they can experiment freely in a either an organic or inorganic lab with access to a stock…
