Some Ideas of Our Final Assignment – Susanna and Terrenz

We are interested in environmental issue and would like to produce learning object related to this issue.
Topic: Sound Pollution
Mobile phone, MP3, PSP and other different kinds of technologies become part of our life. It seems that many people cannot live without these technologies. However, the noise generated by these technologies does affect our health, both mental and physical, just like the case of uncle bus and youngster with glasses.
Thus, we would like to produce a single screen learning object with animation and interaction that P6 students can be used to explore the cause and effect of noise pollution on our body.
IT tools used: PowerPoint, Photo Impact and Flash.

My Photostory

Photostory is Fantastic! It can be used for different purposes.

Wrapping book is the most time consuming and laborious work in libraries, especially school libraries. I have to teach my helpers (both students and parents) how to wrap book every year and it’s a bit waste of time. Thus, I choose “How to Wrap a Book” as the theme of my Photostory. All my helpers can learn how to wrap book by themselves and I can save lots of time!

Although lots of time is used for creating my first Photostory, it is worthwhile. Photostory is an interesting and useful software. I love it!

Here is my work, let’s have a look ^.^

Refelction on Session 1

I take this course because I think I can learn lots of new things form it. I know I can after the first session.

How can I visualize or verbalize my thought and the data or/and information I've got? It is known that with the help of IT tools, we can well-craft and well-package the things we have.

This is a challenging module. I have to use carious kinds of IT tools to "create" different kinds of learning object but I am not familiar with those tools. Thus, lots of effort has to be put to learn those tools and lots of time is required. Creativity and imagination is necessary as well.

I do think I can learn a lot from Dr Churchill and from other fellow classmates and what I've learnt is useful in my workplace.
