C4K summary

Neeves post was short. It had pictures and said she can count up to 20. Neeve also went on to talk about how much she likes to read.
Hello Neeve,
My name is Audrey, I am in a class called EDM 310 at the University of South Alabama. I love your wikispace, I’m sure your very proud of it. I have a cousin who is in the 1st grade and he loves coming over to playing at my house. I bet the two of you are learning about the same things right now. What is your favorite subject in school? He loves science class. Which is perfect, because I am going to be a science teacher. Hope you have a great week!
Deer antlers are actually tissues that grow backward and up and then shoot forward. Most of the
time the antlers of the deer are used to fight off other bucks and to attract mates. In Febuary or
March deer antlers fall off or shed from the deer. At the peak of the antler growth, depending on
the deer’s genes and nutrition antlers on a buck can grow up to a half inch in a day. When a deer
is growing its’ antlers there is a clothy material velvet. Velvet helps the antlers grow. Velvet has
circulating blood in it. And that is what deer antlers are.

Hello Will,

My name is Audrey Carrio and I’m in Dr. Strange’s EDM 310 class at the University of South
Alabama. I am studying secondary education; I want to be a high school science teacher after
college. Your blog was so interesting, my dad used to hunt deer and I have a few friends that
do too. Are you a hunter too? I did not know the antlers fell off in February and March. I would
think this would make them more vulnerable to prey after their antlers fall off. What do you
DJ made a movie about Mermaids and fish and published it on her class blog.
Hello Dj,
I am a student at the University of South Alabama in Dr. Strange's EDM 310 class. I loved your movie, the animations were incredible! How did you learn how to do that? I have to admit I love mermaids too. "The Little Mermaid" was my favorite Disney movie growing up, I still watch it sometimes too! Thanks for your great video!

Two students made a short video about their school yard and play ground outside of their school with music to accompany it.
My name is Audrey and I am a student at the University of South Alabama majoring in Secondary Education and I am in Dr. Strange's EDM 310 class. Your video is great; did you two make it on your own? Or did your teacher help you? I have a cousin who is in the 2nd grade and he loves the play games and go to the play ground. I look forward to seeing more blog post.
What I have ben studying throughout his year in Age of Exploration are the 15th and 16th century. The very first project that I had to present was a project about Christopher Columbus and his first voyage. Where I tried to go with this project was give some details about the voyage and how it came into play, and also why it was important to the world. I also wanted to tell people what the impact of his voyage was.
As of right now, we are in the middle of the 16th century project researching the Christian Reformation. My project is on Martin Luther and the three walls. What we are trying to do in this project is describe a primary source from this time period and describe it. The hardest part of this project is always staying on task and taking advantage of all our time. This is hard for me because there are no guidelines and we basically have to make our own timetable for our project. How I have been able to overcome being distracted is by using paper instead of using a computer. Paper allows me to see and touch the source rather than just reading it off of a computer.
What I have been learning about myself as a student is that I have to take advantage of all my time that is given in class, and also my best way of researching is by looking into different sources and then pick which one is my favorite. The most successful strategy that I have been using is taking notes on paper rather than a computer, because it helps me stay focused. What I think I can improve is taking more time outside of class earlier on in the project to get ahead, just so when it comes time for the presentation I don’t have to rush as much, and so I don’t have to be using a lot of time outside of class to get my work done. But, overall I think that if I use my time inside of class more productively I can get a better understanding of the project and also not have to rush as much later on in the project.
My name is Audrey and I am a student at the University of South Alabama in Dr. Strange's EDM 310 class. Your class sounds like it is very interesting; my history classes always fascinated me. It also sounds like you are learning a valuable lesson on time management. I think this will really benefit you once you get into college though; a lot of students have to learn this the hard way. Once in you are in college you have to be responsible for managing your time and study habits. Great post, keep up the good work!

  1. Hi Audrey!!
    I loved reading your post for the C4K assignment. This, by far, is my favorite part of this class. I really like learning from these students and seeing what they are learning by using technology in their classroom. One small issue you may need to correct for future posts for this assignment is putting a link for the blog which you have visited and commented on. You did a really good job and keep up the good work!!
