Group PBL

For our group PBL the No Names decided to find a way to share your artwork with the world. We came across this cool website called artsonia.com. It was a site where teachers could upload their students artwork into different exhibits that the teacher could create. It also allowed for the students to have their own portfolio of their artwork. Another cool feature about this site was that it allowed people to purchase mugs and T-shirts and other things with your artwork on it. I found this project to be fun and it was cool to be able to show it to our classmates.

Interactive Whiteboards

I absolutely love interactive whiteboards! This was my favorite activity we did this whole semester. I would love to take a class that is all about interactive whiteboards. This was the first time I was able to create things that could be used on the board. After watching the videos on how to create the flipchart I started to make my own. The favorite thing I made for my flipchart was the magnifying glass. My group made our flipchart for elementary school students. Our theme was going to the zoo.

Collaborative Tools

For the collaborative tools project we used google docs. Going into this project I felt very comfortable with google docs because I have done a lot of collaboration with other students on assignments assigned for different classes. I am a big fan of google docs because it allows for people to work together on papers and projects online without having to meet with each other in person. You do not even need to get online at the same time. People are able to work on, edit and change what has already been posted by other members. My group created a survey for the other students in the class to fill out. The survey was on what were people's strongest intelligence and their weakest intelligence.
