What I Believe

I believe that teaching should be more about the students than the teacher.

In the past I had a teacher that hardly even care about the students.  If they passed or failed it made no difference to them.  They did not really open themselves up to helping their students when they needed it.  whenever a student asked the teacher a question they said i taught you that look in your notes or something along the lines of figure it out yourself i'm too busy for you and wish not to be disturbed.  This obviously had no care for the students and to the teacher it was a job and they got paid for it no one said they had to do a good job and try to put in an effort to make everyone pass the classes they were teaching.

People that teach should show their students the way to a better future even if they have something that they're doing they should be able to put it down fairly easy and help the student be a question to help them understand something better.  Sometime they get a question that has something to do with the general subject but a little more advance the teacher should answer the question giving to them as best as they can.  The teacher needs to be able to put time aside from their lives and the things that they want to do to help shape the students so they can do things later in life to the best of their abilities.

Teaching is all about the students because they are the next generation.  They will become the next group of job workers but if they are not properly educated than many disasters will happen in the world.  Most of them could be prevented if The Teachers take the time to be there for the students.

Cool Tools For Education

I went and found a list of the top 100 tools and i had found one tool that we are all familiar with, Twitter.  Twitter of course be used in so many ways that it truly is a great tool as Mr. Smith said.  We can use it to learn from other teachers about things they do and it can be used to help out our future students with problems they may have on some homework.  This can also be used for more than educating reasons which makes it even greater. It is truly a good tool.

An issue in education

A current issue in education which seems to be popping up more and more is children with a learning disability.  Most children can do fine in school and learn at at decent enough rate.  However there are some children with learning disabilities that just can't keep up with all of the other students in their classes.   Another part that goes along with this is that some teachers are not entirely sure of how to deal with these students.  There are many things going on now to find out if there is a way to increase the learning capability of children with a learning disability.  I found a site  that has several different issues to talk about.

I found a video that had a little bit of information about children with a learning disability.
Learning disabilities are show up more often than ever and it is sometimes hard to do anything about, but that does not mean that we should give up on these kids entirely I believe that no child should truly be left behind.

PowerPoint Project

The powerpoint project was a great way to figure out what sorts of different things that you could do on powerpoint in education just by exploring.  You also got to see what some of the other students did which benefits you to so that you may even know more ways than what you had originally come up with. 
I did my powerpoint on orders of operations and i found it to be a long tideous project for certain things. It was truly fun though. The way that I used it wass to start out with a guided practice to have them go through each individual step in the problem by what goes first then that equals what ever it is then kept repeating that. Then after that it went on to an independent practice just by having the questions and their final answers.

I did not struggle with too many things but they way that i had to transfer it was not through a flashdrive. The way I did it was to attach it in an email which took a little bit longer.

I learned a great deal about the new powerpoint some of what I learned I had forgoten from earlier uses. I remembered about certain things that you can do with the animations in their timing.  It was a good learning experience for most of us I think.

Here is my powerpoint if feel like looking.

here is my twitter so you can follow me if you want

My Twitter if it doesn't work give me a comment and ill see what i can do


Okay so twitter it seems alright of a program i just do not see what all of the hype is about it.  To me it just isn't that great of a program.  Anyway how would I use twitter to teach my students in the future well I could have them follow me and on a separate account just for teaching and post reminders to them about homework assignments and tests or quizzes in the near future.  It would be the worst thing ever to make for the reasons of teaching and I see as to how it can and most likely will be useful in the future.

a little more on Chapter one

I think is great the things that are truly happening in the field of education.  The fact that technology will eventually be used more than what it has been is so intreging.  Some people will miss out on it which is not fun for them that they wll miss certain things.

Feb 2/2 class

I read chapter one earlier and it was just very interesting how some teachers out there don't even want to leave their jobs because of the growth in technology and that it is going soon be used more in the teaching field.  Also went on the penndot site today and saw how much there really is to teach about to the kids I will be teaching in the future.  It just seems really interesting to see the types of things our teachers in High School went through to get to the point that they are today.  See you all (if you are in my sedu class)  on Tuesday next week.

This was my actual first blog

Ok so this is my very first blog that I have every made in my life so I'm not really sure what to write about.   Anyway just a little bit of background about myself my name is Marshall and i went to Seneca High School and i participated in the marching band and theatre.  Now it's my second semester of college and I think I'm going to like it because none of my professors seem all that bad or too mean and I can understand what the most of them are saying which was a problem last semester because I had a professor  with an accent.  Anyway I think that there is always room improvement for everyone including myself and that every one can learn something new everyday even if it is not to important in your future.  I think that my SEDU class will be lots of fun with all of the other students and the fact that we use more technology to try and stay involved in the class which is how most classes in the future will probably be.  But that is all for today i wonder what i will write about next.

Just go with it

Ok so today Is the second week of sedu and now i finally start to understand more about the blogs. So lets have some fun in this class using all the tecnology we can, and good luck to every one in their classes this semester.
