End of the Year Reflection

I really enjoyed my PLN class this year. I think that I learned a lot about web 2.O tools. I will continue to use these tools through my life. I think that they will really help with with college and everyday life. I think that my favorite projects were are collaborative projects with Philly. I really enjoyed getting to know all of them. It was neat having a classmates so far away. I dont think there was anything that I didn't like. I loved it all. I think this class should be required. I learned so much about the web and I think these tools will come in handy when I need to do projects in my life. I loved having my mom as my teacher as well. I will for sure miss this class. And will continue finding and using web 2.0 tools and expanding my PLN. <3

My Passion Project

We did a project on something we are passionate about. I chose to make a Google site. I made mine on where I want to go to college and what I want to do when I get older. I did a lot of research on my topic. I knew I wanted to be in something for biology but was not sure what field of biology. I also picked a college that I want to go to. Here is the link to my project. :)

We are Thinking Differently at Van Meter!

For this project, we were given the charge to create a project for ISTE's technology committee.

I used Prezi for our project about technology and how it is changing at Van Meter. I used Prezi because it is a really easy and fun tool. It is neat because it is kind of like a Power Point, but more interesting.

I think the biggest change that technology is causing at Van Meter is all the new people we are connecting with and the new ways of learning.

Check out my project here!

I really liked YouTellYou. It is a fun way to put your pictures and include comments. It is kind of like your own little newspaper with your pictures and comments included. I created two YouTellYou's. One about homecoming and one on my cousin Zoey and her birth. I will defiantly use this in the future. I can use it maybe with big events like prom or halloween or something fun like that.

Our PLN Field Trip....Something to Remember!

A few days ago my PLN class went on a field trip to the movie The Social Network and out to eat at On The Boarder.

First, we went out to eat at On The Boarder. This is my favorite place to eat so I was very excited about going there. Our original plan was to go to Buffalo Wild Wings but we changed our minds at the last minute. I thought that On The Boarder was a lot better anyway! :) The food was amazing as usual!

Then we went to the movie The Social Network. I thought it was really good and it was very interesting to hear about how Mark created Facebook. It was amazing what he all had to go through to get it to the way it is today. It is also cool to hear how much code and how fast he created Facebook.

I think I loved hearing about this because I love Facebook! It is such a good way to see whats going on with people and meet new people too. Facebook is definitely one of my favorite ways to connect!

Create your own video slideshow at

Animoto is a fun and easy way to make a slideshow of your pictures. You can also incorporate music with your pictures. It is really fun and easy. You can have a video up to thirty seconds for free but anything over that you have to pay for it. I think if you used this enough though it would definitely be worth it to purchase. It is kind of like an online scrapbook for your memories.

I really like it and plan to use it in the future for many things.
