Stephanie’s thoughts on technology

smyers's Fotobabble.

This was my attempt at explaining technology by utilizing both sound and sight. After reading Chapter 3 of Ong’s Orality and Literacy it’s all I’ve been able to think about. That and the dialogue we had in one of the discussion threads about the value of being able to hear another’s voice to add the sense of connection to the online learning community.

(I apologize in advance, I couldn’t figure out how to open the fotobabble within another window within the blog so unfortunately, for now, it seems as though it is going to redirect to fotobabble. I am continuing to try to work it out. If you hit your back button it will redirect back to our blog.)


About smyers

Hi Everyone, I am a high school alternate school teacher living in Vancouver, BC. I have been teaching for 15 years, though I am not sure where all that time has gone. I love working with teenagers, and am grateful that I have the opportunity to share my love of learning with young people every day. It's a pretty sweet gig!

    Creative post! Thanks for introducing me to another piece of technology. Have you used Fotobabble with your students?

    Hi Joy,

    No, I haven’t but I am already plotting new things to do with it in my English classes this term. It’s a pretty great tool. I’ve had fun just using to communicate with family and friends that are at a distance. My parents are loving fotobabble. They are not really into facebook or skype and are across the country so this is a nice little bonus throughout the week to close the gap between us.
