Under Investigation

investigationThese last few weeks have been a whirlwind in terms of  learning new technologies, both in practice and in theory. I’m thankful for the opportunity to have learned so much in such a short time. Because the course is ending, however, does not mean that my investigation into technology ends. Rather, because of the course, I’ve learned about or more about tools to enrich student learning. The only way to check effectiveness and fit for me and my teaching style is to experiment. Thus, some technologies which I’d like to further investigate include: podcasts and adding voice or music to a Prezi. Podcasts could create a sense of warmth and welcome for students. Further, adding voice or music to a Prezi could enhance a presentation. Also, I’d like to figure out how to wrap text around an illustration in this blog. To summarize my investigation into technology tools, especially for the format of online teaching, has, in the words of the Grammy-Award winning group, The Carpenters, “We’ve Only Just Begun”. For those unfamiliar with the song or the group, here’s a link for your enjoyment: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=__VQX2Xn7tI&feature=kp
