Using VoiceThread Technology in the College Classroom

Recently, I decided to make a VoiceThread for use in my 20th C. American Literature class. I started exploring different teaching strategies for my students when I realized that they were not very excited to read and respond in the traditional way. A VoiceThread is a wonderful tool which enables you, the instructor, to upload your media file (like a slide presentation), add your voice to it, and then allows the students to add their comments as well. The entire VT then can be seen by either… Continue

Computer Assisted Language Learning in Arizona

I will be moving to Arizona to teach at ASU in the American English and Culture Program. I am really happy about going back to live in a place where the sun shines everyday. As I sit here in a very dark and gloomy Kalamazoo, Mi.

I hadn’t heard this yet. What a great idea. Not in small part because it’s difficult to get rid of old computer monitors and CPUs. Thanks, Costco.

By Geoffrey A. Fowler

Last week, Costco quietly rolled out a new partnership with Web site Gazelle to encourage its legions of discount shoppers to trade in their old… Continue

Screen Recording in Computer Teaching and Training

In the production of multi-media courseware presentation, we often need to capture the computer screen actions of operating the application, such as tracking the movement of the mouse and the keystrokes from the keyboard, and so on. That is to make a multimedia animation presentation document from your onscreen activity. And they can be used for software training and self-learning. The research shows that screen recording applied to teaching and training receives a good… Continue

You know those cute little characters you pick to represent you on Internet forums and Blogs, well imagine a dynamic Avatar that works with speech recognition software and coverts it to sign language? A deaf person could attend Professor Lectures, Speeches or listen in on a group discussion without having to read lips.

MediaWiki, LaTeX and teTeX

Spent the greater part of the day getting matrices and \mathbb to work on my FreeBSD/MediaWiki install.

The issue is with amsfonts. I installed the latex port, but this does not include amsfonts. Deinstalled and installed teTeX, restarted apache and voila I now have vectors, matrices, and more.

Visit: Maths to see some matrices and \mathbb's

I posted what I did in some detail to:…

Updated Maths

I have updated the Maths text to include a section on completing the square; some rearranging has occurred. And I added some nice graphs; some of the graphs need to be replaced with "more professional" looking graphs.

Does anybody know of a program for Linux or Mac where I can put multiple graphs, label points, put custom labels on the x and y-axis, and export as *.png files?

I am also going to try and make… Continue

Elementary Tech Teachers SMARTBoard Tech Lessons?

Elementary Technology Teachers teach how-to.... and integrate technologies. We must spend time teaching how to use software and hardware so that students can apply tech skills in other areas. In our struggle of encouraging everyone to integrate SMARTBoards and other IWBs, I find that we do not have many of the tech How-To... lessons for the IWBs. SmartBoard and Promethean lessons for curriculum topics are springing up all over, but we still cannot ignore the basic technology knowledge needs.… Continue
