Final Project for Emerging Tech Class

Well, I think I’ve got the hang of some of these things we’ve learned about. I’m still a little in shock about just how much of a technophobe I turned out to be, but…

My project is posted at http://sites.google.com/site/adultlearningstrategies/  . I decided to use the Google site to highlight some of the Instructional Strategies that we are using at the Academy.

On the page, “Games,” I built a Jeopardy! – style game, using PowerPoint. Then I used Screenr to record a screen capture example of how the game is used in class. I tried to export it to YouTube and then import it to the site, but I couldn’t get it to work properly. So instead, I saved it to my hard drive as an mp.4 file and then uploaded it as an attachment. Not quite the effect I was going for, but it will work. I also tried to use Slideshare to capture the presentation, but I can’t figure out a way to do anything except linear navigation.

On the page, “Demonstration,” I used Screenr to record a PowerPoint presentation about navigating a particular website. This is important in my classrooms, because we have computers and projectors, but no internet capabilities. So if we need to show our students how to do something on the internet, it has to be translated somehow to run on a stand-alone computer. I like Screenr for this. In this case, instead of saving the mp4 file and attaching it to the page, I was able to embed it in the html coding for the page. I like this presentation better.

On the page “Case Studies” I just played around with building navigation links and resource links.
