One thing that everyone knows about is the Internet and what most teens know about is the famous networking site Twitter. To me at first Twitter was nothing I wanted to be a part of. I thought it was some stupid website. Now learning more about Twitter I realize that its more than just a website. It is a place were you can get great information. You can follow important people. So now that I know just a little more about Twitter, I hope to find more out and see if it will help me more with my future.

Telling Time!

I hoped that you liked my power point!

This is the standard my power point is based on

The project that I had to do was make a power point that had a lesson component. The process for me was not that difficult. I already knew how to make a power point and how to use all the animations. To get the kids to interact with the power point I made a little game. The game was simple you just had to answer the questions, but you had to answer them till you got them right. After the game I would then test them to see if it helped them learn and if it didn't then I know that I need to go over it again. When I present it everything worked great so I know now that this could be something i could use in a class. Over all this project was easy for me.

Why the big shifts?

While I was reading chapter one in the book Personal Learning Networks, I came a crossed the line “No question, we are living at a time of unprecedented change, and the wed is driving much of it.” When I read this I stop to think, is this really what today is about. Our time is change fast with all the new technology coming out. How are we going to keep up with the technology? Children are using more and more technology at younger ages. What all are we going to change? Will it be the way we are teaching, living, or as simple as communication?

Today we have already seen how the technology is changing the way we teach/learn. In Chapter one under The Big Shifts, paragraph 4, it say that we no longer need to sit behind a desk to do work. It also says that in the near future we will only need our phones to accomplish what we need. Already in schools they use computers for research or projects. What is going to be next? All classes online.

If you are older you can see the change from when you were a kid to now. Things have changed fast just within ten years. Most of us couldn’t even live without technology anymore. How far will it go? Will it make us all fat because we won’t have to move to do anything or will it help the earth? Two very different things that it could lead to.

Communication has changed a lot. Now we can talk to someone half way a crossed the earth. You can contact anyone in seconds. So is this going to get even better? Maybe even faster.

Technology is changing everyone’s life fast and it is just going to keep changing. But why change so fast. Will it be better for us changing so fast? If we could live back when there was no technology, what is the rush of changing everything? Like analog to digital or generic to personal. Why move so fast? For me I think taking it slow to get use to it and to push things.
