Enjoy this last screencast! To reiterate in simple words…. I LOVE classroom blogging. I have enjoyed the increase in communication between parents, students, and myself. I have a tendency to be long winded when I speak. I edited it to make sense:)
My number one learning: Things do not always go as planned and sometimes we forget to take pictures…. poor kindergarten’s. Now, they are reminding me! That is so helpful:)
As I mentioned in my summary of learning, I do NOT claim to be a singer. This was just to find an entertaining way to summarize the semester. I certainly have learned many new tools but I highlighted the ones that were the most meaningful to me. I have thoroughly enjoyed this course and the dialogue between colleagues. In the last couple of weeks, I have really engaged with Twitter and certainly become a bit more comfortable with it. I have graduated from using post-it reminders to go on Twitter to thinking of different ways to use it. This week I made a comment about Agribition and it was favourtied! That was nice to see. (All of you Twitter pros probably wouldn’t get as excited as I:) )
This certainly was not an easy task. I was trying to manage my mouse, the recoding, reading/singing the song while looking at the screen and pressing the apporpriate pages. It took time for sure. I think the 3 minute video actually took an hour and half to do. I had to start and stop…. rewind… delete…try again many times! You can see my mouse highlight and the awkward pauses but some I was unable to delete or fix up.
Here is a link the the Google Document I used. As I got a good idea for a lyric, I used my Google Drive app on my phone to write it down. I used the syllabus to remind me of the weeks people presented, the actual lyrics of All about that Bass.
The music I found on Youtube. Credit to PiaknowItAll. He created piano tutorial for popular songs. I needed one without lyrics.
Anyway, here is the video. Take it with a grain of salt. Appreciate the humour… you are the only ones who can truly appreciate it.
Thanks for the view!
