Becoming a "Blogger"
Becoming a blogger was new to me – I didn't fully understand the term and to be honest I'm still struggling a little bit with the finer points. However I found an article in the national newspaper which was topical at the time " PE as an examination subject" and decided to give it a go. I enjoyed the experience and this task gave me the opportunity to get rid of some angst about a topic that has been troubling me for quite some time. To this end I found it a worthwhile experience and I got to see some other bloggers and their posts as well which was helpful. I am not too sure how much of this style of writing I will use in the future however. It may be something I will have to delve into a little deeper in order to get a full understanding as to how I can apply it to areas that I ma interested in.
"Flicker" is a wonderful app and very useful. I enjoyed playing around with this one and I will come back to it again and again as it was very entertaining but also educational. I can see how it will be useful in my work as I make a lot of instructional presentations and the choice of images that are available to use is remarkable. I didn't know such a facility was available without breaching copyright.
Photofunia is a very entertaining app and I had great fun exploring all aspects of this one. Humour is very important to me particularly in my teaching and there are ways of using this app which can lighten up a serious topic and make for a fun and enjoyable teaching environment.
I had done some voice over work before using powerpoint but I found screen o matic an easy and user friendly tool for making video presentations. I feel with this one it would be necessary to upload the premium version so as to make audio possible but in general I found this tool very easy to use.
