I truly enjoyed teaching both my graduate and undergraduate courses this past semester. There were a number of really hard-working students who produced some very meaningful work, and overall, I can say that I am increasingly excited by the quality of students I am encountering both in schools (my graduate students) and soon to be teachers (my preservice groups).
I thought I would quickly share a few of my favorite student reflections and projects over the past semester. These represent various forms of digital expression, and will help provide inspiration to my students in future semesters.
- Amy’s Final Reflection – Digital imagery, animated, and set to music.
- Anne-Marie’s Adventures in EC&I 831 – Nicely narrated reflection with imagery and music.
- Dan’s Summary of Learning – Mashup of Comics with Prezi – fun approach.
- Delise’s Final Reflection – Nicely narrated video, reflection on learning.
- Jay’s Final Blogpost – Nice final written description with video.
- Russel’s EC&I 831 Christmas – Fun, short Claymation movie.
- Story of a Girl – Bethany, Sarah, and Gabrielle’s first stab at stopmotion animation, deals with eating disorders.
- Sarah’s Reflection – Nicely reflection using video & screencasting.
- History of Technology in Education – Decent Prezi by Bradie and Kelsi
- Bradie’s Reflection – Another nice reflection, narrated slideshow.
- Erin’s Reflection – Solid reflection using Voicethread.
- A Garageband Tutorial – A series of videos showing how to create a techno song by Justin.
- The Decision Game – A decision-based game that utilizes the annotations feature in Youtube (think, choose-your-own-adventure), by Cody, Justin, Sheldon & Seanna.
- Didn’t Trip, Got a Grip, On the Basics – A song Katherine wrote & performed summarizing her course experience.
I hope these are useful and/or entertaining to you.
