On Monday, you should have created a Gmail account, your blog, and added an About Me tab as your first blog page. You also successfully joined our Edmodo group and even added a profile picture. The intro letter/About Me should be completed by class tonight. We will discuss peer comments and submit the assignment in Edmodo tonight.
Tonight, I will discuss in more detail how to complete the journal assignments. We will look at L&L and the Citation Machine to ensure you know how to access the articles and how to properly cite them using APA format. Your first two journal entries; however, do not require APA citation. We will look at the School 2.0 Reflection Tool and how to take a screen capture on the Mac that you will incorporate into journal 2. We will also begin, and perhaps complete, the classroom newsletter using Microsoft Word. I asked you in class Monday to bring a colorful drawing of yourself that you can incorporate into your newsletter. If you need to scan the image, we have plenty of scanners in the room. I will also introduce the use of Twitter, yes Twitter, as an amazing networking tool to find resources and connect with other teachers around the globe!
Don't forget to bring food and drink as we will be in the lab for quite a while!
