Xtranormal video

So Evan and I are the discussion leaders for the Web 2.0 information this week and I made the following Xtranormal video as an example of Web 2.0 tools. I hope you like it and that you all have fun participating in this weeks discussion. I think that web 2.0 really is pretty fascinating stuff.

Google Earth Studio Project

So for the past little bit, I have been playing around with Google Earth for my studio project. It really is a pretty amazing tool. I have had it loaded on my computer for a while, but haven't really looked at it too much until lately. Last week in my Computers in Education class that I am teaching, I had the students look at some different tools and the one that many of them got really excited about was Google Earth.

Week 6 studio project - iPhone apps

The media that I explored in for my studio project is the iPhone. The iPhone is a very unique device because it has the functionality and computing power of a computer, but it is as small as a phone. What this means is that the iPhone has is more a computer than a phone-- you can play games, do email, do research, read the news, and also call people. If you are interested in learning more about the iPhone, here is a link to more information. The iPhone is also unique because it is one of the first phones to use touchscreen technology, where you touch the screen instead of pressing buttons.
