In a blog post create an assignment that would be completed by students in your future classroom. Describe what they are to make and create an example. Also describe what learning objectives you believe it might support. Remember that the assignment should be fun!

As a future physical educator the assignment I would want my students to complete through digital media would be to create their own game through digital story telling. It should be a video explaining steps about their particular made up game. I value the importance of guidance meanwhile the importance of exploring. I believe that students should be able to create and reenact, its one of the wonders of sports, you can make up your own game and actually play it; your rules, your game. Some learning objectives that would be taken in consideration would be class discussions, individual learning, and technology based learning. Digital story telling would be used to help develop a technological skill, it can encourage research and the use of online tools.

Learning objectives would be supported by allowing students to experience and create their own games, and it would be a game that each student personally gravitates towards. Afterward thr reenactment of the sport or game, would be the fun part. Different learning styles are also addressed. Visual learners, auditory, and kin esthetic learners are all addressed.

 

Rey Awesome in Apocalypto

For my visual assignment, I was to add myself into a movie scene. What better scene then from Apocalypto directed by Mel Gibson?

Add yourself to a movie scene! Preferable a famous movie. The creepier you are, the better.

Using Pixlr.com I managed to crop out my head from an image and paste it onto this actual image from the movie; and I added my mask by drawing on my actual image, it was fun!

Students that can learn the photo shop skill can always use it for presentations in school, at home, for work. Photoshopping believe it or not is a skill and a desired one since the world is only getting more and more technological. I really think that students can use this to express their thoughts as well. I think that the things your students gravitate to is a crucial thing to learn. Each student is different and when as a teacher, you are able to identify your students individually, you can better connect with that student. I feel that when their is a better connection with your students by understanding and knowing them, it provides support and comfort in learning. Also, teacher are able to adjust their lesson plans to the needs of every student.
