Loved listening to the podcasts, itunes and teacherTube but was unable to add to my blog..spent far too long trying to get past the 'contact support'..although I followed the steps re: installing the software and subscribing -Hmmmm!
Generally I've enjoyed my foray into expanding my computer skills- however- sooo much more time is required to truly explore and to take advantage of this information- TeacherTube is really easy and useful as is Audiobooks- There seems to be a large varied collection available.
Thank you Fiona

The mind boggles at the information out there! This again is a useful way to get information and has many applications. I wished I were more disciplined as i could spend my life just clicking on links.

#15 & #16

The RSS Feeds allow you to stay totally up to date in the areas of interest you have subscribe to. I can see this being a useful and exciting way to structure lessons and also in your day to day choices. Setting up will take some time but after that it should be totally straight forward. I look forward to viewing mine regularly ( I hope!)

Got a bit confused following instructions and spent too much time getting lost. Probably a fun and useful tool once I spend more time finding my way round.

This is a wonderful bit of technology! The possibilities are endless- I really like this one and it has so many applications classroom, personal, global.....I love just seeing all the different artwork /covers over time.

This is a whole lot of fun! It's great having access to this free stuff and using it on Facebook etc.

#9- Second Life

The exploration of a virtual world has become a very popular past time and I've heard and read all sorts of comments regarding this - the concept appeals- but I'd need to really spend time and thought on this to make it something exciting and truly second lifey...maybe I don't have the imagination? What I've generally seen in my short visits is tedious glam/tv/fantasy predictability..hmm! the usual greed and stuff I'm not interested in.

How much fun is this? I could get hooked! I emailed an itube video to a couple of people - I feel I'd like to spend more time exploring this- but now that I know where, what and sorta how, I will do just that.

Enjoyed finding my way round the google docs, maps, books and other fun stuff! Tried a few things..lost a few things, in the process came across a comment from Fiona (thank you).....and emailed an attempt at a VERY basic presenation in google docs to her.
Enjoy your weekend every one.

Trying again to see if this is ok!

Honestly..not hard!

Well-here it is! On first reading of instructions I was a bit daunted, but honestly, the instructions, once you get going are ok..I'm feeling pretty good about this.

AND I found a pic to make it look pretty.
