My Summer

This summer I got I new baby sister. She is now 2 months old. After three weeks in doha (my little sister couldn't fly until she was three weeks old) we flew to germany. The weather was great (better than the hot and dusty doha) and we did a lot of things outside. As we only go to germany once a year it is always great to see the old friends. After six weeks we went back to doha to have one week to get used to the weather and different time. Then the school started and everything went back to normal.

Final Evaluation

The Design of my project didn't change a lot from my original ideas. I had planned the design from the beginning and just had to do the practical work. Some strong points I think was the blog. I had everything I needed and all the other projects embeded on it. A weak point was the voicethread. It was not very amusing and actually plain boring to watch. On eway to improve it would have been to rethink the whole script of the voicethread and ask another person what he or she thinks. Then I could do something to make it better and ask another person what he or she thinks. That way I could have gotten the opinion of a lot of different people and maybe would have done a better job. The unit overall was very interesting. There were many different things to do the project about and it was not hard. You just need to do your work properly and don't forget anything (especialy the URL for the blog). I can just recommend this project to other students.

Tablet PC's


Today we should have had the presentations for the project. This got prosponed because voicethread was not working and that was a major point for our presentation. This is now a little bit annoying because we should have it on the blog but we can't log on. Everything else is done.

My Voicethread

Here is the outline for my voicethread:

Here you see a tablet pc already flipped. As you can see you can write on the screen with a special pen. This is useful to write something quick on the computer and save it.

Here you see the keyboard plus the screen flipped. It shows that you can also type normally without the pen. Also you see that it can be flipped around in many ways to ensure that it is easy to use.

Here you see how the pen is used to write. The lines are actually drawn by the person who is holding the pen. You can draw or write as if it was a normal piece of paper.

Here you see a person using a tablet pc to work on some music. In school we could do the same to work on our own compositions. We could also use it during other subjects like art. Then it would be a lot easier to do work on the computer.

Here you see someone working on a tablet pc in class. It shows that it can be very useful to use in school. This person is working on Science or Math. It shows that you can use it for science and math.

This Boy is writing something either for English or a modern language. It shows that you can use a tablet PC in English and other language lessons.

Carrying On...

Today I worked on the voicethread that will be done soon. You can then leave comments on the video. Since the animoto is already done, I will now concentrate on the voicethread. This will be the last step to do until I'm done with the project.

If all of our students at our school would use tablet PC's:
In IT we could have a plain room with a few plugs. We would take out our laptops and plug them into the the plugs. Then we could start to work. If we didn't finish something we could just save it on the computer and do the rest at home. At the moment we only have normal computers so you need to log into your account and you need a USB to save something on and work on it at home. With the Tablet PC for every student you also save money. The students only need one and no other computers will be needed for everybody has one. In other subjects you wouldn't need to build computer labs since you cand use it in class. I think it would be very useful to use Tablet PC's in school.

I am now doing a project about new technology. I chose tablet PC's as a topic. A tablet PC is a laptop with a touch screen. Usually you can twist the screen around so you can write on it with a special pen. It is like a mechanical notebook. It can help us in school because we can write quick notes on the computer without typing. Of course you can also type normaly. There are a lot of companys that make Tablet PC's. There is Toshiba, Acer, Dell, HP, IBM and Fujitsu. A Tablet PC costs around 1000 to 2000 Dollars. It is used all the time. A lot of people use it. I think it is a great invention.

How I can use iGoogle to support my learning at school

I now have an iGoogle account. It is very useful because you have everything you need on one page. For example, if you need to check if someone wrote an e-mail and serach something on the internet you go to iGoogle and search whatever you have to search and check your e-mail. You can use it for homework, for work, for school ... I can use it check what someone else wrote on their blogs, if my teacher send a e-mail to me, if I have homework, what subject I have next, what afterschool activities I have etc.
