Week Seven Scribe

Week 7 Scribe

We took attendance and reviewed our discussions of advanced searches from last week.

Things we learned about searches last week : “Don’t use Google for images”, doing multiple searches, wonder-wheel.

Think of the search as a process and not a one- time event.

When searching for images:

1.Start off using public domain things.

2. Look for things with creative commons licenses.

*Does citing it properly mean you can do anything you want with it?

No. fair use is based off what you’re using it for. If you’re critiquing a book movie, etc, it is acceptable to use portions of that work for your critique.

Google reader review. You can, as an option, use you’re reader to help you with your comments on your fellow students blogs.

Wizard of Apps:

It really should be looked at in chunks using pauses because it is an overwhelming amount of information.

A roll: the talking head

B roll: the action in the background

Today’s video’s

Teacher Video(Marco Torres: makes the point that teachers should be open to new things and continue to improve one’s craft. We do not need lazy teachers. We need to work hard to help our students to learn.

An Open Letter to Educators Dan Brown: Education needs to adapt to technology today. The monetary value of information has moved to basically “$0” but that is not a bad thing. Governments, offices, individuals etc are using technology. Educational institutions need to catch up. “education isn’t about teaching facts.”

We then had a discussion via: todaysmeet.com about the video discussing the questions:

*What are the ways you think technology will change the way you teach?

*Do you agree with Dan Brown? Why or Why not?

Most of the class members agreed with Dan brown.

*What techniques does Dan use to maintain your attention in this video?

He moved around the screen a lot, used a high energy presentation.

Wiki’s in Plain English: email is not good at coordinating and organizing information. There is a better way. A “wiki” can be used to coordinate. Most work the same by changing what appears on a webpage. Clicking edit allows the user to create text and save the information. Ex for camping. Have: list things. Need: lists things. Saves it, now there are lists. Others log on edit and save as they write what they gather supplies. It is possible to create a link to a new page to organize other information. Gives sites at the end that show you where to sign up for a wiki.

Discussion using Etherpad:

*What does lee help you understand better about wiki’s?

how wiki works and the value of using on

he's great at explaining things!!! i like his 'visual aides' that he uses instead of just showing us on the computer.

How easy it was to use, and how much better it is than email when you have a group of people trying to communicate.

Wow, wikis are alot more simple than I expected...

He explains how easy it is to collaborate with wikis compared to email.

I love watching these videos!

*What have your professors told you or said about Wikipedia?

Not credible

It’s not reliable.

don't use not reliable

NOT to use them as a resource

Today’s Lesson

*How are you going to market yourself? The UCO required portfolio is 99% not used after graduation. There are free online resources that can be used to represent yourself.

*“flow”-when one looses time because they are lost in the moment. Becoming so engrossed in something that time is not even a consideration.

*Education is hard to change because people have so much experience at it.

*The goal of Wikipedia is universal access to the sum of human knowledge. Blogs have a bad name, Wikipedia does too. Wes suggests to use it as starting point.


*Create Your Own Wiki
