Here we are approaching the end to a fairly awesome semester. I have been truly fortunate to have had you ladies in my class this semester. All of your hard work is going to pay off when you become the tech guru of your future schools! As such, I am really excited to do yet one more ground-breaking activity to show your proficiency in technology. Now is when you will use you newly acquired Symbaloo certification to highlight your work for TaskStream. I have created a webmix for my EDUC 578 course at USD that contains student blogs as well as the tools we used and some other exciting products the students created. It was not only fun, but the end product is very cool. Here is a link to the webmix: http://edu.symbaloo.com/mix/educ578
A few amazing things about Symbaloo as a portfolio tool: If you use a Google Doc as a tile, it will show without having to leave the page (e.g., your TaskStream narratives). If you add an RSS feed of your blog, the center of the blog will show your latest posts. The Twitter tile will function in the center as well. You can name tiles and put pictures or screenshots of your own work on a tile. And lastly, we will be able to embed the finished product into TaskStream!!
As far as this evening goes, you will be working on your iMovie PSAs and any other work you may be missing. I will discuss the final TaskStream narratives as well as go over the Symbaloo webmix that will be an impressive portfolio of some of the work you have completed for this class. I also want to apologize for being behind in grading your assignments. I have been a bit overwhelmed this semester with multiple classes and it has put me a behind in my grading. I will do my very best to get everything graded by the end of the weekend so you can fix anything that may need to be revised. Please do not hesitate to discuss any assignments that you may need help completing or are not quite understanding. I can create some time next week to come to campus on a separate day if I need to, but does this required communicating with me.
This Week's Question: What has been your favorite assignment this semester and why?
