Photo Story 3 for EDLD 5363

I really enjoyed this assignment. I found Microsoft's Photo Story 3 very easy to use. I feel that this is something middle school students and on could manage.

So will little introduction I give you my photo story Adam's Big Adventure...

So I forgot to is publish post and saved it instead...

I created a business card I could actually use. I chose to use a template because I am not that creative. I changed the color scheme to match that of my school and added our school logo to it. I also added our teams slogan for next year.

I really enjoy and will probably print some out.

So I just finished the logo assignment...EEEK! I am not a creative person by heart. I am 100% right brained! I think I followed the directions...the need to write a simpler version but I tried. I created a logo for O'Shannon's Pub & Grill...I am sure one exist somewhere but this one is in my head. I chose the 243x103 resolution and I had to upgrade my print logo for the 330 ppi which made my logo 400 something. I used the regular jpeg for my print and video and tiff for my web file. I only made one change during the review and resolve stage and that was to upgrade my print ppi.

According the assessment rubric I exceeded expectations on all but presentation and like I say that to me is due to my lack of creativity.

Digital Graphics & Digital Publishing

I think sometimes we don't always atribute items as things made by computers thus making them digital. We forget that all those cool brochures and magazines are digitally produced. Even newspapers are laid out on a computer.

I found what Adobe was saying to be 100% true and I am excited to be using Adobe to better my skills.

5368 November Resources

I found this site very informative. I started with the information literacy test. I didn't do too bad but I found the answers to the quiz more than I thought. I don't usually think about this information but as a technology specialist we have to share and teach the teachers and students how to find information on the information they are seeking.

Honestly I have never really cared what the address extensions or country codes for websites were. I think that in order to truly judge the validity of a website it would be important to discern whether it is a personal page, an university, or information by another country.

I also think that is really cool. I agree that when looking for information it is very important to note who is actually publishing the material. Along with the author of the site the site history is also important. November offers www.archive as a good way to research the changes a website goes under. The example they use is great. I try to teach my students to be careful while researching. I think I am going to use this in my AP Government class.

Finally, to gain a useful insight into the pages meaning you can run a external link search to see what pages have linked themselves to this page. This is important to see how other sites are using this information.
