We found the power in PowerPoint. The action buttons are so cool! Students are so busy creating their first PowerPoint Game. Excitement fills the air. Below are some examples of slides for Directions, Game Boards and Score Cards. Click on the picure for a larger image! :)
Grab some popcorn and a coke ... sit back and enjoy (these are links to VT student-samples)!
VoiceThread created as a teaching tool!
Reminder: The purpose of your VT could be different than some of these.
Don't lose focus of your purpose.

Welcome to EDU510!
Reminder: Since July 5th is a holiday, our class will begin on Tuesday, July 6.
We are getting ready to take off! I am very excited about the class. I hope you are, too!
As stated in an earlier email, there is not a textbook. However, you will need a headset for class. These can be purchased the first night of class for $10. If you aready have one, feel free to bring it and see if it is compatible with the computers in the lab.
You will need a flashdrive, as well. I suggest you have a 3-ring binder and dividers for organizing handouts.
For working outside of class, you will need a computer with access to the Internet, a mic (either internal or external) and speakers (internal or external). You must be able to access Blackboard (http://eclass.uu.edu) and your UU email (http://webmail.uu.edu)
Check your UU email daily! This is UU's form of communication to you!
Blackboard (Bb) with be used to support this course!
Go to: http://eclass.uu.edu Explore the resources on Bb's Home page! ;)
The course will not be available in Blackboard (http://eclass.uu.edu) until July 7 (midnight).
We will use THIS SPOT (http://redclif.weebly.com) to connect and stay connected, until we are able to access Blackboard.
I will begin to post the earlier assignments so you can begin to plan accordingly.
Check back, often!

I have created an online information form -Tell Me About You! I would like for you to complete it prior to our first class session. (The sooner-the-better! Yikes!) It will not take but just a few minutes. It will help significantly in the course planning process.
CLICK HERE to access Tell Me About You. If you have any problems with the form, leave a COMMENT to this blog post!
Feel free to respond to any of the comments ... ;)
Class collaboration is important!
Looking forward to receiving your info ... ASAP! :)
