We then went to Photoshop Express
I tried setting up an account, but it didn't work
We talked about the lesson plan assignment we would be expected to do. We talked about how much better a lesson plan format would be on word if it was done with tables

We then went back to the Kid's Zone website and the NAEP site to make a chart of students with IEPs in West Virginia and the three poorest sites. Here is my chart:
That is just a small view of it. I also saved it to this google document:
We also went to the Crappy Graphics website to create a "Crappy Graphic." I made a Venn Diagram about the differences and similarities in Main Characters. Here is the link to my graph: Crappy Graphics Chart
here is it in a google doc: Google Doc of Crappy Graphics Diagram
and here is a small image of it:
The following INSTASC Standards were used in these lessons today:

Communication/knowledge The teacher uses knowledge of effective verbal, nonverbal and media communication techniques to foster active inquiry, collaboration, and supportive interaction in the classroom.

This would cover the 3rd INTASC Principle:
Learning styles/diversityThe teacher understands how students differ in their approaches to learning and creates instructional opportunities that are adapted to diverse learners.
Some learners really need to visualize something and this graphic would be another learning strategy for a visual learner
We discussed where tofind the Resume feature google docs. In google docs, you click "from template" under "new"
We also talked how the web has progressed in the past 5000 days. GPS and online classes are two things that have been introduced. We also discsussed the top 10 web trends.

Today we didn't have class due to weather, but we were told to read the following link:
I went ahead and read the Multimodal Learning Through Media Link and answered the following questions:
Describe what Dale's Cone of Experience is?
A "visual metaphor" depicting types of learning, from the concrete to the abstract
Is Dale's Cone of Experience logical? Factual?
The data can't be found, but Dale's "bogus data" is more a representative of a "rounded-off generalization based on Phillip's experience and probably some test data, at the Ordinance School.
How does Dales' Cone of Experience comport with current research on teaching and learning in the assigned reading. After the reading, comment on your opinion of the validity of Dale's Cone of Experience.
Visual Symbols are part (though small) of Dale's original cone. The difference with today's research is that it is based on a better and more available technology. I do agree with Dale's Cone because I think that Direct Purposeful Experiences will always be important
