EDM 310 Class for 4/20/09


Thank you all for your understanding and good wishes last week. It was a real tough week for me with my neck injury. We are almost finished with the course and we only have a few more things to do. I appreciate everyone being so wonderful this semester and working with me as we figure out what the class is about.

Today, we will do the following.

1. Talk about our Twitter blog
2. Finish our Professional Blogs
3. Start working with Foliotek

We will also use Wednesday to try and get Foliotek finished. We have to have all of our requirements for Foliotek in before the last day of class so I can assign you a grade for the course.

Thanks and I will see you today!

I will not be able to make it over there today. I have been out of work for the past two days and I will not be in again today due to my neck injury. I am seeing my specialist again today. He is aggressively treating the injury but there are lingering effects that need to be worked out and rested. I am having a difficult time functioning with this injury. Again, I apologize for any inconvenience. I will see you all on next Monday.

Discuss your reactions to Twitter, the benefits of Twitter to a teacher that you can visualize, the negative aspects of Twitter, the use of Twitter as an individual and how likely you are to use Twitter as an individual and as a teacher.

EDM 310 Class for 4/7/09


I have finished 4 of the 5 podcasts. I need to meet with the group doing Wiki's today. I am going to give the rest of the class today off. You do not have to come to class today unless you are in the Wiki group. If you do come to class today, I can give you the finished file and let you listen to it and make sure there are no changes you would like to make before I turn in everything tomorrow. I appreciate your patience and your understanding with the podcasts. You all have been great to work with this semester. See you in class.

Mr. Tashbin
