About this blog

Students can feel constrained by ways of communicating and learning that seem opaque and fixed because they are permeated with norms never made explicit, knowledge they do not share, or the language of others.

Using iBooks Author, crediting images, making great resources.

Here's a video I made about the iBook I've created for my students for studying Macbeth in 2012. I'll let you know how they enjoy / hate it. I'm hoping they like it, and I'm hoping to make more, but I also aim to also enable some further means for students to interact with the ideas and content we cover in the course. I used the iPad app Disp Recorder to record the screen of my iPad, and record the voice over. There was only a glitch when the keyboard came up to show how to take notes, but otherwise, I'm happy with the quality.

It was a simple process to export the video to my picture roll, upload to my Vimeo App, and from there upload to Vimeo. In the morning it was available, and I'm embedding it in the blog from my iPad. So many content creation possibilities now with iPads, limited mostly only by our imaginations.

  7. Today, I went to the beach front with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year
    old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put the shell to her ear
    and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside
    and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!

  13. I needed to disconnect my 2600 printer from my computer system recently.
    When reconnected, there is now a loud whistling noise made by the printer.
    It still prints, however the sound is very infuriating.
    Any sort of concept what could cause this?
