Post #5

The first tool I used was Animoto.  I created a slideshow of pictures from their class trip to Dewberry Farm.  This was very simple to make and embed into my blog.  The second tool I chose was Glogster.  It was fun to create a page using this instead of power point.  I chose to make a page of my recent trip to New York just so I could get a feel for Glogster.  I started off with a nice background, but somehow it disappeared and it took me awhile to figure out how to get it back. Once I embedded it on to my blog, I couldn't adjust the size to make it fit nicely on to my page.  I think most of the kids would be able to use Glogster to categorize things.  For example, I could break the page into sections for our upcoming unit of rocks.  The kids could click and drag on a picture and put it in the correct section of the page. This could take the place of a cutting and glueing activity.

Some issues I'm having right now is figuring out how to put my page in order.  I would like the post to be above the tools that I'm creating, but I have no idea how to get them in order.  Any tips?
