Assignment 3a Submission

Posted by Larra Watterson on Thursday, May 17, 2012,

So it's the time I submit my online cover sheet, I hope myself and my team have worked hard enough to complete the required content of our group assignment. We have found ourselfs hitting a complication with trying to upload our video to our wiki space home page, we tried to just directly upload it however it says it's to big. We even tried to upload it to YouTube so we could hyper link it to our page and that didn't work either..... we are getting worried! we spoke to an I.T friend and he sa...

Group Video

Posted by Larra Watterson on Thursday, May 17, 2012,

Our group video took ages to perfect, trying out lots of different sorces to do our video howeve we decided to go with Jing. It best suited what we want and how we wanted to produce our video.
We done our video with a twist, and I love it as do my fellow group members. We decided that being a teacher should be fun so we decided to make our video fun but still deliver the essential requirements. We added music just for that extra touch and to suit our great theme being the solar system and pla...

Tutorials

Posted by Larra Watterson on Thursday, May 17, 2012,

Tutorial was fabulous this week, being week 12, not saying it isnt every other week. But I found myself forming a group for our group assignments and finding time that suited all member to really get together and nut the assignment out. I feel that we all as a group have really found the tols needed and learnt from technology, especially wiki space thanks to Jenni for her assistance. We also took a long look at what the rubric was and what exactly we needed to get the higher standards. I feel...

Assignment 2, I hope I recieve my results soon. I found this to be a little difficult trying to navigate the murdoch Find It page, when trying to find my journals and so forth.

It was great help to ha...

Assignment 1 results

Posted by Larra Watterson on Thursday, April 26, 2012,

So I recieved my results from assignment one and I was happy with them, I could improve so I feel I need to work that little bit harder in my next one. Blogging is also fun, it's unusual how much I can actually talk about one I start typing. Iv'e taken some of my feedback from my assignment rubric and tried to better my website and blog by adding links to resource pages and the companion website and also by talking about the lectures and readings. Also discussing my process with assignment 3 ...

EndNote trouble :(

Posted by Larra Watterson on Thursday, April 26, 2012,

Trouble with EndNote, for some reason I can not seem to download EndNote which poses a problem as it is a requirement for asignment 2. I have spoken to the I.T desk at Murdoch and unfortunately the lovely gentleman can not assist me at this time. I have gone to my friends place to use her computer which has EndNote however as she has not used it in a long time it appears to be having issues...... wait I think we got it working!

It's a little tricky to use but I'm trying to get the hang of it. ...

Group Assignment

Posted by Larra Watterson on Thursday, April 26, 2012,

Group work, it's been difficult trying to get all the members together at the same time, there have been complications as one of the group members was placed into two groups and is no longer in our group. Sad to lose a group member already, puts a little more pressure on! But our group is trying really hard to get our taskes done. I found the learning guide is not reflecting what is expected in the rubric for assignment 3, with debate on what the task intales we as a group looked on the compa...

Online weeks!

Posted by Larra Watterson on Wednesday, April 25, 2012,

Online weeks. It seemed to be a scary thought, not going into Uni for classes, but it has been helpful. Reason being is that it has giving me an opportunity to get my group together for our final group assignment. So it's a good feeling knowing that we have it under way.

I'm recovered, my operation went well and now I'm back to my hectic Uni work again. I've been paying close attention to the companion website for assignment two and I feel it has really helped me with my understanding on this ...

Peer Review

Posted by Larra Watterson on Thursday, March 29, 2012,

Peer review, it was a scary process. I was struggeling to get my assignment up on my website by the 20th of march for review..... but it was ok I got it up there shortly after. :)
It's strange having someone other than a teacher to review my work, it made me feel as if someone else could judge me and the quality of my work against their own. It was a strange process but I think it was also very rewarding having had feedback from a peer who is also going through the same unit as I. It really he...

What a week!

Posted by Larra Watterson on Friday, March 23, 2012,

Oh wow! What a week!

Learning so much about technology can be a little overwhelming, but somewhat exciting. I have learnt so much in the past week with the assignment 1 task B. I chose facebook as my social networking site, I found it easier to literally start from scratch and create a new facebook account in my name to be able to capture all the screen captures needed for the assignment. And ensure I had all the correct and relevent steps involved in the process of making and account.

I learnt...

Posted by Larra Watterson on Wednesday, March 14, 2012,

So I now have a new email....... which is completely different! I have had the same email since I was 14 years old, but now I have gone from hotmail to gmail. A little different to use, but i'm getting the hang of it. So good on me :)

I'm very interested to see how I will approach assignment one, I was thinking about using facebook because although I already use facebook I feel there is still alot about facebook I havent already learnt. So i'm intested to see what else I can find out and add i...

Technology

Posted by Larra Watterson on Wednesday, March 14, 2012,

So Technology, it's an interesting thing. I was very surprised to see just how many sites there are for communicating and interacting.

I worked out how to do the hyper link which is wonderful, worked out that I had done it right from the bigining I just had to publish my site to see it. So note to self publish site after each visit.

Last week in class I was interested by the group work up the front with the smart boards, I have used one very breifly and I am really looking forward to when I get...

First Blog ever!

Posted by Larra Watterson on Wednesday, February 29, 2012,

Hi my name is Larra,
Currently I'm doing my Technology Unit in my Education degree. Seems a little scary to start out but I'm sure the further I go through the easier it becomes.... well here is me hoping!

At this current time I'm trying to create my hyper link on my home page, proving to be a little difficult. I have managed to create the words I wanted to become underlined and high lighted, but unfortunately my hyper link has no where to go. which could be a worry! 

Well I'm going back to try ...
