The blog that I enjoyed viewing was "Mr. C's Class Blog." The teacher in this classroom seems as though he has incorporated a lot of technology into the classroom. The blog is more like a tool to help the students at home, as well as let the parents view what has been going on within the classroom. The teacher is a male teacher and he explains things in a way that everyone can follow the lesson. If a student is absent for a class (and it was an important lesson), the student has easy access to find out what he/she missed that day. Not only does he have videos of class experiments, but he also puts on review questions for tests, helpful links, and fun things like videos of school games. See Mr. C's class blog here. If Bees are Few was also a very interesting blog to ponder over. The most recent entry discussed the technological aspect of today's society and school assignments. Instead of the "dog at my homework excuse", there is the excuse of "my computer isn't working", the "submission site is down", and "please excuse my child because..."The blog then went on to explain that technological excuses are in abundance and everyone seems to have one. The writer for this blog helps its reader with teaching in today's environment and gives genuine opinions and ideas.
I like to use the dog pile search engine because it is easy to search for things just like using google. It also has tabs at the main site in order to search for specific things (images, video ect..). It also has options for downloads, dvd release dates, and other important information.
This is my first blog ever ( I don't like to count Xanga in middle school) and I cannot say that I am too excited to write in it. I have put off taking this class for so long and now it has finally caught up to me. I'll just start by saying what I have done so far today: I woke up at 7 this morning to go and work out (boo), then I took a shower, while I was in the shower my dog ate my new pens :(, now I am here in class writing in this blog. I am going to have a night class tonight (double boo), but at least I won't have to close tonight at work.
