Mike helped me start on Aviary and I spent some time exploring the audio recording part of this site. I was able to record my daughter playing two different parts on her frnech horn, sync them together, and delete some of her extra beats to help the two parts fit together. Here is a link to this recording.
I also worked with Picasa and plan to use this more frequently on my website to share pictures of what we are doing in the music room.
I feel as though I grew immensely in the NETS*S standards. I have learned how to develop technology-enriched learning environments that enable all students to pursue their individual curiosities and become active participants....assessing their own progress. This is evident in my work with Aviary and how I plan to incorporate that in to my classroom.
Through my work with Skype, and the plans I have for next year, I have exhibited knowledge, skills, and work processes representative of an innovative professional in a global and digital society.
When I share my new knowledge with students and other teachers through Prezi, xtranormal and Aviary - and with parents through Picasa, it will be evident that I am a teacher who continuously improves their professional practice, models lifelong learning, and exhibits leadership in their school and professional community by promoting and demonstrating the effective use of digital tools and resources.
