This is my Reflection Video on EDM310

I have enjoyed attending this class, Dr. Strange has been a good coach and Stephen has been a great help in all the questions that I had. The class was very confusing to start with but, I think that I done pretty good. There is one thing I can say "I HAD FUN". Thank all of you at EDM310!!!!

Blog Post # 13

     I think that Alex is a great resource for teachers. Alex has wonderful lesson plans to choose from and it is great that teachers can share their ideas and work with other teachers. Alex: The Alabama Learning Exchange and their Moto is: Quality for ever facet of learning.
     Alex is a place that educators can use to look up lesson plans and so much more such as databases and podcast. There is also a section titled "Course of Study" and "Personal Workspace" and these two help teachers in creating more efficient class time. Any new teacher will appreciate this web site.

     Access is the Alabama Connecting Classroom, Educators and Students Statewide.                            

Our Vision: The State of Alabama will provide equal access to high quality instruction to improve student achievement through distance learning.

     Access is to give each student the opportunity to take lessons that are not taught in the school in which they the student are attending. If a student wishes to learn another language access will connect them to a teacher that teaches that language. Access will provide any type of study through technology to be taught by a
teacher to the student. Access is only for high school students, but they should think about letting other grades have this opportunity for learning at an earlier age.

Summary C4T number 2, 3 & 4

Hi, Mr Bedell
I am in EDM310 at the University of South Alabama with Dr. Strange as my instructor. This E-book is a great resource for anyone and I will be using it often. You have done a great job with this book.

Mr. David Hopkins
This was great! The drawings told a story and to watch the artist was spellbinding. What Sir Ken Robinson talked about was enlighten and I do agree with Sir Ken on his philosophy about over mediating our students. I agree with you that this is an exceptionally brilliant piece of animation to accompany an insightful and thought-provoking talk by Sir Ken Robinson. Thank you for sharing this wonderful piece of information.

You really had a wonderful idea with this Radio Broadcast. When you can bring students together and get them to communicate with each other and share their ideas, you have accomplished what we all want our students to do. Students must learn to develop their communication skills and you have done a great job with the radio broadcasting show in achieving this goal.

Reading these post was enlighten and I posted to more teacher but did not save my post. It is good to get an insight into what others think and to know what is available for teachers.

Summarys for K 4 K # 3, 6, 7, 8 and 9

Number Three, The student wrote a poem about butterflies and it was very beautiful.

Number Six, The student wrote a riddle and you had to guess who or what it is, and I said you are a monkey.

Number Seven, The student placed a picture that had been taken and wanted to know what to name the picture. The picture reminded me of communication lines, but my husband called it "A refreshing Sight" the student did very well.

 Number Eight, In this post the teachers dressed up in costumes and the children had a fum time at the assembly.

 I enjoyed posting to the kids blogs and to see what a child will write and how they understand so much. I do love children and it amazes me how much a child understands by just listening to what other people are saying or doing.
