What I learned:
Today I learned what are probably basic aspects of the movement through
computers and their drives and various bells and whistles, if you will, but these are
things I really didn’t know very well or needed refreshing. I am also somewhat
intimidated by what we are supposed to do for this course.
How I might use what I learned:
I’ll be able to organize files in my computer and do housekeeping in my
computer.
Critique: how might the lesson be better presented:
I think it was presented well; however, I have to admit I did get lost at
times. This was most likely due to the fact that technology is a weak
area for me.

What I learned:
The text modification was mostly a review for me. Saving the document into
txt was new, but not difficult. Everything dealing with powerpoint is definitely
a learning experience, especially importing documents, pictures, and graphics.
How I might use what I learned:
I will be able to make powerpoint presentations more interesting by being
able to insert pictures. Also, learning how to import documents into
powerpoint will save time if I want those documents in my powerpoints.
Critique: how might the lesson be better presented:
Sometimes it’s too fast!

What I learned:
I learned how to actually create a powerpoint presentation by
inserting pictures, graphs, and text. I also learned that virtually any
of those things online can be copied and manipulated. The
copy/paste was good practice.
How I might use what I learned:
I’ll be able to create powerpoint presentations, but I’ll also be able to
copy/paste any of the things mentioned above on pretty much any document
to make it more interesting. I’ll definitely be able to use powerpoints as a
way to use visuals in my teaching.
Critique: how might the lesson be better presented:
I like the variety of things we can import/insert into
powerpoint! I think it would be helpful if there were some
kind of handout that had the various steps of how to do this
and that in writing.

What I learned:
I learned about various software, pedogogocal and non-pedagogical, that can be
used in the classroom. I also learned about Dasher.
How I might use what I learned:
The software can be used to perform most any language domain, from
listening/speaking to reading/writing and grammar and comprehension as well.
I’m piloting a kindergarten French program where I focus on oral language only,
so I have yet to find software that would work with that age group. Too bad they
don’t make Dasher anymore; there’s probably something I could do with that.
Critique: how might the lesson be better presented:
A list of recommended software and a short annotation of what each is
about would be great.

What I learned:
Today I learned how to find sound files and insert them into
powerpoint. I also learned how to record my voice and save it into my
powerpoint. Very cool.
How I might use what I learned:
Again, I can make my powerpoints much more interesting by using
sound.
Critique: how might the lesson be better presented:
Again, some kind of troubleshooting/how-to guide in the
likely event we run into problems.

What I learned:
We had a guest who discussed creating websites. I can’t say that I
really learned how to do create a website, but now I at least have
some sort of schema.
How I might use what I learned:
I probably know enough to begin to simply play around with creating
a website. At this point, though, copying and pasting and then editing
someone else’s would be a good place to start.
Critique: how might the lesson be better presented:

What I learned:
I learned the basics of how to create a Dasher exercise.
How I might use what I learned:
Dasher seems to be a good way to design a lesson, via technology,
that I can tailor-make to my needs. Considering that there are not
many materials available for elementary French, Dasher seems to
be a good option.
Critique: how might the lesson be better presented:
Written step-by-step directions!

What I learned:
I learned more about powerpoint (animation, sounds in animation, transitions,
background color) by looking at my classmates’ presentations.
How I might use what I learned:
I can fine tune my powerpoint presentations and make them more interesting
and aesthetically pleasing.
Critique: how might the lesson be better presented:
I really enjoyed looking at all the presentations!

What I learned:
I saw scanning for the first time, but I would certainly need more
practice to be able to do it. I also learned about hyperlinking slides
and websites to pictures.
How I might use what I learned:
Hyperlinking slides will allow me to guide students as to where I want
them to go. It will allow me to manipulate the powerpoint so it can be
more interactive.
Critique: how might the lesson be better presented:
So much of this is new to me and I get lost!

What I learned:
I learned more about inserting sound waves into
powerpoints.

I can use my voice in presentations.

What I learned:
I learned how to create my own interactive powerpoint with interactive
hyperlinks.
How I might use what I learned:
What I created was pretty basic, and I know enough to be able to revamp
it, but learning how to make a presentation that flows and has active links
was a big step for me.
Critique: how might the lesson be better presented:
I like being able to work on tasks during class time.

What I learned:
I got behind on the Excel, so I definitely need to go through that
again. On working on my revised mini project I learned more about
powerpoint: how to copy slides into a new presentation, changing
slide order, timing the effects.
How I might use what I learned:
Learning more and more about powerpoints is great. I will
definitely be able to use them as a way to implement technology
into teaching. I will be able to have computer lab sessions in which
the students can use powerpoints as learning activities.
Critique: how might the lesson be better presented:
The excel session was too fast!

June 25, 2003
What I learned:
I learned a bit more about powerpoint in looking at the other projects, such
as word art and linking. I need more practice with linking, though.
How I might use what I learned:
I’ll be able to refine my presentations.
Critique: how might the lesson be better presented:

June 26, 2003
What I learned:
Dasher and Excel became a little more clear to me, but I will definitely
need to work with them more to really understand how they work.
How I might use what I learned:
I’m really looking forward to working with Dasher and curious to see
how it works in its entirety. Now that I know how to put in a formula,
Excel will be handy.

What I learned:
Alejandro told us about the Discovery School website where you
can create quizzes and tests online. Susann had great ideas about
using authentic materials in teaching vocabulary.
How I might use what I learned:
The Discovery website is a great tool for teachers, and I think
students would like the format. I can definitely use Susann’s ideas,
especially with younger learners.
Critique: how might the lesson be better presented:
They both did a great job; I’m glad they were here!

What I learned:
Today I worked on my final project, and I was very proud of myself
for being able to navigate correctly through powerpoint.
How I might use what I learned:
Learning how to use powerpoint, especially the ways you can tailor it
to suit your specific needs, has opened a new pathway for me. I will
definitely use ppt in teaching.
