Blog Assignment Week 13
Dr. Seuss-The Zax
This video was SO cute! It also made a very valid point. The video basically showed how some people can be so set in there ways that they refuse to change at all. I, myself am a bit old-fashioned, and I'll admit that I wasn't a huge fan of technology prior to taking Dr. Strange's class. However, since then, I've seen how great a tool the internet and other sources can be. It's very important to be open to new ideas and ways of learning because new ideas may provide student with an easier way to learn.
PS22 Chorus of "Landslide" by Fleetwood Mac
First of all, I must say that I LOVE this song. I've always thought Fleetwood Mac was awesome, but I appreciate Stevie even more now because she was so humble in regard to the performance. I was very astonished that she wanted the PS22 group to perform at Madison Square Garden. Had the group not published the video of their version to the internet, this great opportunity may have been passed up! This is a prime example of the benefits of posting work to the internet. Clike here to view their wonderful, touching performance.
Comments 4 Kids
For this week, I commented on a blogpost done by Room 1o. They were making butter for their fairy bread and made a video of them doing so. I thought this was an awesome, creative activity that differed from the norm and allowed the students to have fun at school! Below is my comment and a link where you may watch the video, too!
Hi, Room 10!
