For Project 15 and 16, I was in the group Team Fantastic. For project 15, we did a lesson plan on second grade social studies. For our final project, we did a video on How to Fail EDM310. When we collaborated on our projects, we stayed simple and just used Email and SMS message. On our SMART board lesson, we also used the NoteBook software that we had downloaded on our computers. We had a great group and our projects went perfectly!

The teacher that I got to read to posts from this week is Jenny from Auckland, New Zealand. She is a primary teacher who has been blogging since 2009. In her most recent post, she mentions taking up photography. She was inspired from a Facebook friend about using her iPhone to snap some pictures. She displays some beautiful pictures of flowers she took using her phone. They look great! The moral of her story was about the differences between simple cameras and expensive cameras. "The happiest people don’t have everything, they just make the best of everything." This is a great quote to remember. We should all remember this in our future classrooms. We need to make the greatest impact on our students with whatever resources we have available. Google+. She overheard a family member having a hangout session with her class. So Jenny started thinking about how Google+ could be used in her classroom. Do you think it would be a good idea? I think it's great to introduce new things to the classroom. You could add the students into your "circle." I want my students to be well rounded in all things. I would love to introduce them to this!
