Tool #5

Today I learned a lot of really great tools that I can use in my class. Blogspot is one of the coolest because I can use it to connect with other people to seek help and share ideas. I also will be able to use it to create a blog for my class so students can work on the homework together and seek my help on any problem. I will upload the homework for the night to remind them as well as make myself available to help. Another really cool tool I learned to use is a Prezi. I know that our Active Boards make our presentations more engaging, but the presentation methods of this company are too great! I tested it out a little bit using my class rules.

<div class="prezi-player"><style type="text/css" media="screen">.prezi-player { width: 550px; } .prezi-player-links { text-align: center; }</style><object id="prezi_3xim0wsn09ab" name="prezi_3xim0wsn09ab" classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" width="550" height="400"><param name="movie" value=""/><param name="allowfullscreen" value="true"/><param name="allowFullScreenInteractive" value="true"/><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"/><param name="bgcolor" value="#ffffff"/><param name="flashvars" value="prezi_id=3xim0wsn09ab&amp;lock_to_path=0&amp;color=ffffff&amp;autoplay=no&amp;autohide_ctrls=0"/><embed id="preziEmbed_3xim0wsn09ab" name="preziEmbed_3xim0wsn09ab" src="" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowfullscreen="true" allowFullScreenInteractive="true" allowscriptaccess="always" width="550" height="400" bgcolor="#ffffff" flashvars="prezi_id=3xim0wsn09ab&amp;lock_to_path=0&amp;color=ffffff&amp;autoplay=no&amp;autohide_ctrls=0"></embed></object><div class="prezi-player-links"><p><a title="Math Rules!" href="">Math Rules!</a> on <a href="">Prezi</a></p></div></div>

I am not sure if I would use it a lot, but maybe more for speed drills like review fractions, multiplication, common factors, etc. It will be great for a do-now in the first 5 minutes.
