BP9_RILS Comments

Cartoon Craze!

I had the privilege of visiting Trudi Perkin’s RILS exercise on Educator Studio, as well as her blog page, and let me say, I LOVED IT! I took some time to look through all of her material, and explored the tools she used at www.bitstripsforschools.com, and I was very impressed with how she put together this exercise. Please visit her blog to view my comments on her RILS process. It was a great idea and I think Trudi did a wonderful job with it!

QR Code Craziness!

This QR Code will actually take you to my comment on the blog! Cool huh?

QR codes are very cool bar-code type images that you can scan with your smartphone and they will take you just about anywhere. The coolest thing about them is that anyone can generate them. Jamie Baker took this concept and ran with it in her RILS exercise, which she used to explore their usage in sharing student knowledge with one another, among other things. You can view my comments on her awesome RILS exercise here!

Also, for those interested, here is a link to a free QR code generator!

He really inspired me to get up and go try something new.

As some of you may know already, I consider myself a fairly avid photographer. That’s not to say I consider myself a great photographer; just that I love to take the camera out and take photographs. I’ve been using and teaching Photoshop for many years now, and have learned almost exclusively on my own with no formal training. The purpose of my going through this program on Lynda.com was to see a couple of things:

  1. How others use Photoshop in a little bit different manner than I’m used to
  2. Methods I can incorporate into my instructions for teaching Photoshop in my classroom
  3. Techniques and tips I can integrate when working with photographs and creating artwork

So I put together a little PDF to get my students going on Queeky. Hopefully this will eliminate a lot of the headache on implementation day for my RILS and make things run smoothly.
