    Course Reflections
    I really have enjoyed getting used to the mac computers. At first they were very flustrating because it was like trying to teach yourself the computer all over again, but I soon felt that I caught on to it. I enjoyed getting to know and working with other memembers of my group. I gotten many great ideas from this coarse about what technology can do in the classroom. In the future I would hope to learn how to do something that involves making grade books easier. Thanks for helping this semester!

    Did you know?
    I was a little skeptic about this video. I understand that technology is moving into the classroom, but I believe that it should be regulated by the instructor. Students that have the resources to purchase laptops and ipods should not think that they must bring them into the classroom to make their school lives easier. This can not only make them lazier students, it will cause a distraction. Students will use these technologies outside the specifications for school usage, playing games and surfing the internet. Also, students without resources to afford these technologies will feel inferior, perhaps even bullying other students to obtain them. I believe that only instructor approved tech should be permitted in the classroom.

    Course Reflections
    1. I enjoyed learning how to operate on the mac systems, as well as cooperating with my group on the wiki page.
    2. The taskstream website was probably the most challenging, only because it consisted of many steps.
    3. I have learned that technology has become a powerful tool for teachers in today's classrooms, giving them more time to spend with the students rather than organizing and preparing things manually.
    4. When you work in a group with more than one person, you get that many different views on the same subject. This allows the problem at hand to be challenged by different angles at the same time, making everything easier. Also, different people bring different skills and previous knowledge to the table.
    5. In the future I would like to get a better grasp on the mac operating system.

    Dave's Notes
    Although Brain Gym has found many advocates since its introduction, it has found many critics as well.
    Some say that the change in classroom behavior based on Brain Gym's activities is the result of a placebo effect.
    Children who recieved similar exercise breaks were found to perform at equal or better capacity as those who participated in Brain Gym.
    Other critics claim that the exercise kinesthesiology introduced by Brain Gym's creator is a pseudoscience.
    They claim that excercise kinesthesiology enters the supernatural realm with its "brain buttons" and "energy flow".

    Pros:
    Although Single Sex schools have many cons they also come with many Pros. Whether single sex schooling really proves to be useful all depends on who is asked and where they stand on the situation. Many articles state that Single Sex schools prove to be socially and emotionally easier on the students. Students are not worried about impressing the opposite sex, less likely to compete with the same sex, and can better concentrate on their academics. It has also been shown that same sex schooling is a better environment to build confidence. Since there are far less distractions, students are able to have better focus during school. Same sex schools also have an effect of sports. Girls are much more comfortable participating in sports that are usually dominated by males, and boy are far less competitive. It seems as if In regular public schools image, impressing the opposite sex, and competition are the students main focus, while in same sex schools, academics takes a much more important role. Academic Involvement is very important in schools and separating the students by gender definitely has a positive influence.

    Course Reflections
    1. I enjoyed learning how to make powerpoints more creative and less cluttered.
    2. The most challenging task was making the website.
    3. I have learned how important technology is in the classroom and that sometimes the students know more than the teachers do.
    4. I have learned how to work in groups and how to distribute work evenly among members.
    5. I would like to learn more about powerpoints and how to find templates and pictures for them.

    Course Reflections
    What course activities have you enjoyed?
    The activities that I enjoyed was using the different programs to make various presentations such as powerpoint and Microsoft word.

    Which activities did you find challenging?
    The only activities that I found challenging was creating the website on task stream not because of the difficulty but because of the navigation of task stream and how difficult it is to create a website.

    What have you learned in terms of using technology in teaching?
    The things that I have learned using technology is just a few things because personally I already own a mac and the basic things were easy but I did learn a couple of new things such as knowing how to save a powerpoint and a website as a PDF file.

    What strategies have you learned in working collaboratively with others?
    I learned that if others in your group don't give 100% and all of their effort then your project will be very difficult to finish and will be very hard to give a good representation of your subject matter.

    What would you like to learn in the future?
    Things that I would like to learn in the future is on how to create a website using something else outside of task stream and create a more in depth website with many more features. Also, I would like to learn how to use the smart board because more and more today teachers are associating this technology within their classrooms.
