Post 1 response on your blog/class preparation:

1 – After watching Generation Like, respond to this question on your class blog. How does understanding how children use the Social Web prepare us for our instruction in the classroom?

2- Please bring headsets/laptops (if you would like to work outside the lab) to our next class. Here is a headset I like.

3 – Plan for Digital Imagery & Image Manipulation (Pixlr) in lab activity. Bring images that you may want to use and check out these ideas for inspiration.

Ideas: Explore perspectives; visualize similes; illustrate principles with self-portraits; place self in literature or history; create illustrations of principles or functions; use an improbable scene as a writing prompt
