Technologies 4 Learning
Created a "survey monkey" survey for a year 7 class. It is on road safety, and it went well. Provided a lot of positive discussion especially when viewing the results. Will use again, possibly set up a pre-test for the next unit of work. Found "survey monkey" useful and easy to use

Publishing in Web 2.0 environment
In publishing in a web 2.0 environment we looked at various tools that could be used to publish student work or place teaching material on the web for student use. These tools included:
posterous
Animoto
You tube
Slide Share
Voki

Here is a animoto video that has been exported to 'you tube' and then embedded in this page


This is an example of a Voki

Animation
Looked at using Keynote as a tool to create animations. The brilliant Dom Ferrante showed us how to use the draw tool and after lunch we cut a picture and turned it into an animation. This is my attempt.
