Thing #6

It was fun to explore the Flikr tools and mashups. I also liked the trading cards, mosaic creator, and learning about Picasa 3 for storing photos and creating albums, etc. I wonder if we are able to use Picasa 3 for school projects. I would like to create trading cards as business cards for myself to give to parents. I did play around with trading cards but need to find just the right picture to use.

Thing #5
I had never heard of flikr before. Fun to explore the health fitness group and get some ideas for creating projects relating to health. During this exercise I enjoyed exploring other sites that popped up like "Animoto." The resources are endless! The one drawback I see using Flikr is the privacy issue. Nurses are always conscious of this. We would have to be very careful when using images of students.
Here I am at the end of a week at school! I love this picture, found on Flikr, because I have a fifteen-year-old black lab.

Thing #3

Posted my Avatar. Now don't I wish I really looked like that? So what is the purpose of an Avatar anyway? I ended up saving it to my desktop and then importing it from there. I am registered so on to thing #5!

Thing #2

Whew! It is taking me forever to set up this blog. And so habit #4 "Having confidence in yourself as a competent, effective learner" is my challenge with the 23 things. I am guessing that I am probably older than most of you partcipating in this adventure. Technology does not come easy for me, and I have to admit I did not know what most of the terms on the list of 23 things meant. But, I am persistent and up to the challenge of exploring the world of blogging. So here I go! Slow but sure.
