February 7, 2010

This week I commented on Britni's blog. She is in Ms. Deyenberg's class. In her blog she wrote about her science project, which was really awesome! She made a gumball machine! She did a really great job! She also learned last week how to do a layup in basketball. Even though she hurt her thumb, she said she had fun! Here is a link to her blog..check it out!

How to Create a Podcast

For this assignment I used Judy Scharf's Podcast Collection. She first explains what a podcast is. "A podcast is a “radio-style” talk show." "Podcasts can convey information about any subject." Then the very next thing was a link on how to use Audacity to create my own podcast, which I found very useful since this is the program I will be using for EDm 310! Here is the link for anyone who needs it,

This is a great site for teachers who want to implement podcasts in their classroom as projects because it gives links to how podcast are beneficial in a classroom, and even gives project options. She includes a schedule if you want to make it an in class project, grading rubrics, research worksheets, and so much more. This site is definitely bookmarked for future use! Maybe you can use it too! Here is the link to Ms. Scharf's page where you can find this information

I just saw that I had not posted this on Friday...oops! :) Guess I need to always double check!!!

  2. That doesn't really make sense, but I will definitely try to figure out how to do it! Thanks for the tip!

  3. Select the words you want to use as a button...say Ms. Scharf's page in your post above. Click the Link button (looks like a link in a chain. Paste the URL (make sure you do not duplicate the http://

    That's it. Take a look at the code. It's like the a tag code you wrote to get the link to the class blog to work.

    All of this is in a document with a link in the Syllabus. And in Google help and in ... lots of places.
