Final Project

Summary Post C4K #4

My fourth teacher I was assigned is Jo Fothergill. He's a teacher in New Zealand and his blog covers a wide variety of topics and experiences.

The first post I commented on was entitled "Writing Revolution". Mr. Fothergill shares his enthusiasm for his kids use of kidsblogs. He notes the drastic increase in both post writing and commenting. I wrote that I was glad to read his post because it validated everything we had been learning in EDM310.

The second post I commented on was a video entitled "8 Keys to Success". The video is a presentation by Richard St. John in which he reports the most common reasons successful people give for being successful. The 8 are Passion, Work, Focus, Persist, Ideas, Good, Push, and Serve. I commented that these were all qualities that I aspire to achieve and that the list would be a great tool for self reflection.


I chose Symbaloo for my PLN. In my first report I mentioned that I had done very little work on my PLN. I think there is a significant difference between then and now.

My PLN has links to several blog sites that I can reference for information on Tech projects, SMARTboards, and day to day observations. Also, on my PLN I have Gmail, Youtube, and Facebook. I have CNN for world news and for local news.

A few personal favorites are my Saints, South Alabama, and Auburn football sites. I have a link to my blog and to Twitter.

I think the best part of my PLN is the different blogs. Each one of them has information about different topics that I either have encountered or will encounter. Last but not least, I have a link to EDM310 so that I can keep tabs on the latest news in Technology-Education.
