Final Teacher Summary #4 for December 2012

Lisa Thumann: NY/NJ Mobile Learning Summit
September 30th, 2012

In Lisa Thumann’s first post she wrote about her busy work with the Mobile Learning Summit. She first talks about how she only has posted one post about every month this year. She list what her work schedule has been like, and explains that this is the reason for the few blog posts. She has designed SGEI (School for Global Education & Innovation) website, made a list of PD sessions for SGEI, contracted with Google Apps EDU Professional Learning Organization, and planned several events at Kent University.
One of those events is, the NY/NJ Mobile Learning Summit. Mobile Learning Summit is a group of leaders coming around to meet up and discuss what is best for the learners of K-20. They also show techniques to use in the 21st century, as well as let others share their own ideas freely. I left a slight comment on how I think her and the organization are doing a great job with developing technology in today’s classroom. I also commented how EDM 310 tries to inform students on the new sources of technology in a classroom setting. She has a pretty tough schedule, but she is doing a great job with her work.

Lisa Thumann: Untapped Apps on Google Drive
November 14th, 2012

In Lisa Thumann’s post she mentioned the different Google Drive apps and their functions. Most of the apps she talked about would be very useful for Edm 310 assignments. Apps such as the Pixlr Editor, WeVideo, and Twisted Wave we could have used for some of our projects. Pixlr Editor App lets you customize and edit images. The WeVideo App allows you to create and edit your own video, similar to iMovie functions. Last, Twisted Wave is an app used to edit audio or even sound effects from the computer. Lisa also told viewers how these apps can be used on multiple devices. This is due to the fact that, when you purchase the apps from Google Chrome, it follows your account and not the device. In my comment to Ms. Thumann I stated how these tips, on the Google Drive apps, would have been useful this semester. I told her how I wish I would have known about these apps would have came in handy for some of my projects. As well, at the end of my comment, I thanked her for her post overall.
