About mob92885

I'm 6'2 215, african american physical education major who attends cuny york college. My goal for this semester is to gain more proficiency in computers and technology and be able to incorporate the use of this knowledge to my prospective career and make advancements.

Blogging culture

Blogging is an excellent way to stay in touch with you peers and advance your self further within your field.

During AC 230 i had set up my own blogging account http://michaelbrown1985.wordpress.com/ where i can post views within my prospective career in physical education.

i hope people like my website i know the colors are crazy but i hope you like it.

i feel that blogging will help me stay in touch with people who are in my field and i would strongly suggest every body would do it

 

AC 230 final reflection

When i started AC230 i thought it was going to be the typical learn different software and programs on the computer which i won’t use after the class and isn’t ideal for everyday life. When i took AC 101 i learned different software and hardware on the computers which is good but is not really practical because it is not something i need to necessarily know on my job and if it is i can google it on the computer.

 

Fortunately and contrary to AC101, AC230 was a breathe of fresh air to what i can actually use on my everyday walk of life to advance myself and become better at my profession. AC230 uses social sites and blogging to stay connected to what current in your field and how to stay relevant and innovative in your field. Who wants to be the old teacher who can’t relate to what the students are going through because over the years they have disconnected with whats relevant in the field.As a teacher you want to know how to present information and teach to the newer generations and what is the newest effective way to keep students interest so they can use the information in their lives in practical situations.

STAYING IN TOUCH

AC 230 has taught be to sum it all up keep reinventing my self in my prospective career path as a teacher, to stay motivated and connected via professional blogs which can help expand my ideas and receive feedback from other professionals which will help me improve where i am weak at. This is relevant for all times because i can apply this to anything i do in life because we all want to be the best at what we do and with help and feedback there is always room to grow and evolve with the changing times. Professor Smith i believe is very cool and he is one of many people who will help change the world.

The Reinvention of yourself

 

Reinventing yourself in education is a difficult task because you have to realize that you need to improve then you have to care about your craft and care for those whose material you are given. you have to care more about people then you care about just collecting a check and meeting the status quo.

 

Hard work ,sacrifice, and to chase a dream helps with reinventing your self as a teacher and you will leave a lasting impact and legacy as a teacher with your students even if your work goes unrecognized by your employer and fellow staff members.

 

As a teacher

As part of a teacher job to stay motivated in teaching their students is motivating themselves to present the information to the students in a way which you have been teaching it. This change may take place because of the changing times and how the children absorb the information. We live in a day and era where technology is more prevalent than ever so a teacher has to challenge his or herself to come up with a way different from how they are used to in order to deliver the knowledge . This is a tough task but times is always changing so why not the teachers them selves. Teachers get complacent with teaching the curriculum how they have been teaching the subject mater for years and you may see some growth within those first couple of years but taper off because the disconnect between how you deliver the knowledge of your subject matter and the younger generations who you have to present the subject matter to.

keep yourself as a teacher current with the times which means you are not just a teacher but a student as well because you are constantly learning also.

how badly do you want success as a teacher, is it satisfying and success in just knowing that you have delivered the same material for so long the same way or struggled to find new way to teach and keep children connected with the material…keep the hunger from within to always reinvent yourself and strive for success.

My ignite talk blog responses

My blog response comments is from Ignite talk with Heather Mallak.

Heather Mallak discussed many thing from instincts, ingenuity technology as a tool, trends and how these subjects intersect.

I proposed two questions from her speech which i felt was important and stuck our in my mind which was the main ingredient to Heather’s speech. The Feedback on these two questions from Students in my AC 230 class was exactly the answers i was looking for when i proposed the questions. The first question was how could using your teeth be used as a tool? The second questions was why do you think Heather feels our bodies is the key to ingenuity which applies ideas to meet challenges?

Feedback from first question(how could using your teeth be used as a tool?)

basically in similar answers students responded with before we had tools such as scissors , our teeth was used to cut and to tear into things like food plastic so us as humans had to use or teeth as tools.

Feedback from 2nd question( why do you feel our bodies is the key to ingenuity which applies ideas to meet challenges?)

the general answer from students is that anything we create comes from our hands , our minds to formulate the concepts. and basically our whole body goes through the creative process in order to manifest the idea into reality .

These responses in general is what i was looking for from my questions because it was the main point in Heather’s speech in order to connect how we can connect technology as an extension of our body with education and keeping up with the times/trends.

 

 

 

step in the name of school

As a k-12 prospective teacher keeping the students interest, while learning, and being innovative is quite challenging. My video blog is a spin off from an already existing dancing game which as a prospective physical educator keeps the students active while challenging them academically in school. How the activity would be played is that there is 9 designated box areas on the card board and the students have a chance to write down the topic or subjects in school which are least favorable for them. upon writing the subjects down they would place the cute out squares onto the cardboard then i would number each square 1 to 9. While the music is playing or i count down from 30 on a stop watch i will call out the numbered square to be stepped on in a rapid pace to keep students physically active and focusing on the next box to step in. If they make a mistake of stepping in the wrong box 3 or more times, it would be mandatory for students to write a 3 page paper on the subject they will have to improve upon. If they make a mistake in stepping in wrong box 2 times students will have to write a page in a half, and 1 time they will only have to explain to me for 5 minutes how they will improve upon the subject they selected as the least favorable in school.

let me know what you guys think of the concept…..

Igniting Conversation About the Future of Education

In AC 230 class today i was given a video to watch From The digital media and learning conference and my assigned speaker to watch was Heather Mallack.

Heather Mallack in overview discussed Instinct, Ingenuity, technology and tools, trends, and how these factors intersect.

Heather Mallack is is a multimedia artist and media professional who participates in show, works of self expression, and collaborations which display how we can view ourselves and impact the world around us. She is based in pittsburgh and work with organizations such as GMSP which is involved in DML community.

During Heather’s speech there were several quotes i have found interesting in which i would like my fellow bloggers to weigh in on

She quoted ” teeth came before scissors so as a tool as a natural extension of your body thats what you’re utilizing… you may use your teeth as a tool”

what do you think she means by this statement and why

she also said that ingenuity is the process of applying ideas to solve or meet challenges …thats what we use our bodies for

do you think we use our bodies as tools in order to solves challenges faced in reality?

super saiyan

As a student i face many challenges throughout my studies. Instead of letting these obstacles over take me and hinder me in school i take that fear, doubt, anger, and channel it to destroy anything in my way which may prevent me to do well in school. In my super saiyan Goku form i can achieve anything. First pic is me fully powered up in dragon ball z and the 2nd pic is me slightly powering down returning back to normal.

Students will create stories such as this one of themselves as a super heroe or any creative piece which will tell a story.

Can you catch the tune of this song

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cmcdBnj4ZOg[/youtube]

 

 

 

 

 

This is one of the 1st songs i have learned musically this is an assignment

Make Music Damn it that i have done drom the ds106 website

i got this video from Youtube and i used this particular video because it is a musical song that everyone can relate to and it may not be as creative but it hit close to home with those who has grown up and watched a developmental show such as seasame street.

How i can incorporate this into a class is by telling students to create or use a video which they can relate to musically growing up and motivates them. This assignment will have students connect music which motivates them or helped i their developmental process then explain it.

This is the same reason why i have selected seasame street because almost everyone has grown up to the television show and the theme song is a musical peace which can bring you back to one of the first musical songs i have learned.

 

New face of money

The new face of money

I worked on the ‘Create a New You‘ visual assignment from the ds106 assignment bank. It asks you to:

Take an existing photo of yourself, and edit in a way to give the picture a different look. Color your hair, change your eyes, whiten your teeth, get a “tan”, etc.

 

This portrait is a new me as you can seei am the new face of the 100 dollar bill. I did this picture doctoring through a website which i don’t remember but if i can find the website i will tag in the post. what inspired me to do this is the idea of having money and embodying being the face of money because i have so much of it.

How i can incorporate this into the classroom setting as a teacher is to have students envision themselves in he future where they see themselves or how they would see themselves and photoshop a picture of themselves or a picture which would show their future success or endeavors.

how i created this picture was to take an original photo of my self then i uploaded it to a website then i played around with the background and setting then incorporated the 100 dollar bill frame on this doctored setting already
