I think that the 7th grader's Symbaloo was so awesome. She did such a great job on organizing her Symbaloo and explaining how to use it. This is my first time using this particular PLN, but so far so good. She most definitly has more applications on her PLE than I do, but I am just beginning to use it. She has probably been using it longer than 3 months. I think that my students would benefit from this. They will be free to be as creative as possible while being responsible for his/her own work. That is another thing that PLN and PLE's give students. The freedom to be responsible!! What is better than that?

I used this sentence because as a teacher of Special Education I will have to encourage my students even more. I say this because as a special needs child, children are stereotyped and made fun of by teachers, parents and other students. So I say in the video, "Encourage Your Fellow Human Being". These kids have enough bringing them down without the person who is preparing them for the future doing the same.
Hopefully one day I will actually be able to build my own Special Education School. I think that would be completely awesome!!

This was a reading and in the beginning I was not really feeling up to reading or listening to any video. However, I felt it was necessary to improve my podcasting skills. If a first grader can do a bang up job then so can I. While reading the Listening-Comprehension-Podcasting section, I learned some interesting facts about how to make a more professional podcast. For instance emphasis and meaning has to come from the words you speak. This gives the audience more of an understanding of what you are trying to teach.
When I was attending Auburn University, I had a professor that taught by lecturing and podcasting. Podcasting was his way of helping his students by allowing them to review the lecture to make sure all possible notes were taken. I loved this feature about his class because I could go back to the podcast and catch things that I did not catch in the classroom due to classroom distractions.
I fell in love with the recording of the children and the pretend interview. It amazed me how fluent they were when reading their scripts. When I think of a read-along, I think of students silently reading while listening to an audio or teacher. This blog really taught me that there is more to read-alongs than I thought. This teacher took her time and helped the kids to organize their interview questions and answers. The students' were so excited that they added there own emphasis on words and phrases which was another lesson learned.
As a teacher in the classroom, teaching Special Education students, I think that audiobook will be one of my most important tools. I can see my students making his or her own audiobook for his or her daily routine. For example, if I have a student with a Learning Disability then she or he will more than likely take a little longer on certain subjects than most. The student and I would create an audiobook with his or her lessons that were being taught that day such as a math or reading lesson. I am super ecstatic about learning how to use this :)))
This was a very cute blog. I could just imagine the childrens' excitement when they found out that they would be doing their very own podcast. I love how the teacher broke each step down piece by piece. She did not have them to do everything in a day. To me this teaches that some things take patience and do not need to be rushed. Not only did they are learn patience, but they learned "listening, speaking, presenting, comprehension, storytelling, preformance, voice acting, etc."
I think that this is a good example of my argument against Dr. Ken Robinson's argument about Education Killing Students' Creativity. This is an excellent example of a teacher taking advantage of students' creative juices and sharing them with the world. IT'S AWESOME!!!

For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ.There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.

Summery of Comment: At first, I really did not see the revelance in me having him for my C4T. Then I received a phone call from my mother about my brother running track. I thought back to this blog and took some notes from Coach Hahnstadt about the form of a sprinter. I also asked about what shoes he recommended and why certain things were important. I really learned that you never realize how important information is until you really need it.
