Come with me on a journey where we will explore, investigate, manipulate and interact with some familiar and some not so familiar Teacher Delivery Technologies.

On the way ask yourself:-
- how can this tool be used to support what and how students learn?
- does this tool meet individual learning needs?
- does this tool allow student's to develop higher order skills and creativity?

This Blog - Transforming Student Learning aims to comprehensively explore a range of delivery technologies that are presented throughout the FAHE11001 E-Learning courseware. A systematic attempt to develop skills, knowledge and ability that is required to exploit the potential for E-Learning Education will be made evident via regular Blog Posts. To conclude, a reflective synopsis will clearnly indicate which technologies I would use and how I would use them to enhance learning.

Please feel free to be critical of my posts as I work may way through these tools, but be kind as I am only a "Digital Immigrant"! (Prensky, 2001)

You tube

Posted by Wendy Hargreaves at Wednesday, August 12, 2009
Up until roughly 18 months ago I had thought You tube was spealt UTube and although I was hearing alot about it from fellow students I really had no idea what is was. What a difference 18 months makes. Wikipedia contributors (2009) describe YouTube as a video sharing website on which users can upload and share videos. Three former PayPal employees created YouTube in February 2005.[2] In November 2006, YouTube, LLC was bought by Google Inc. for $1.65 billion, and is now operated as a subsidiary of Google. The company is based in San Bruno, California, and uses Adobe Flash Video technology to display a wide variety of user-generated video content, including movie clips, TV clips, and music videos, as well as amateur content such as video blogging and short original videos.

You Tube Ideas for your classroom:
If you are teaching in Highschool, chances are some students in your classrooms may be watching and enjoying You Tube in their spare time. Take advantage of their interest and practice important critial thinking and literacy skills by having them make and edit their own videos that deal with important socail, economic, and political topics. After viewing examples of online public service announcements, students could probe the multiple meanings of these video texts by asking challenging, open-ended questions. They could then use their responses and a Persuasion Map tool to write for their own Public service announcement. Students could then create a short video clip and use Windows Movie Maker to edit their videos.
