Web 2.0 Q&A

* Your general feelings about being on a student panel presenting in front of 50-70 people at the April 20th 1 to 1 conference.

-My feelings about presenting in front of 50-70 people, wow. I’m very nervous. I have presented in front of people before, and in a college class too, but never that many people. I’m sure it will be fine since the class will be with me. I’m nervous on how they will feel about our presentation too. Will they think we are totally lame, or that it was good we’ve even tried.

* What web 2.0 application (besides facebook) do you use consistently? Tell us about it and how you use it.

-I use twitter a lot more than I thought I would. I love that people can put whatever they want, and it’s not necessary to reply. You can just look at it and think, wow that’s cool that they are at a Kenny Chesney concert or something of that sort. You get my point. I do also like twitter because if I forget my show is on, someone might’ve posted a website where you can go read about what happened or possibly watch the episode online, or even what time it’ll be back on.

* What do you see students using in terms of web 2.0 tools?

-I see students using the internet. That’s the best part of Web 2.o, sharing information over the internet. Sharing pictures, or sharing gossip, or even sharing random facts. Kids love that, of course, since it’s more interesting to look at. Not many people want to just sit there and read pages and pages of research.

Well, nothing new is going on at CAM High School. I’m in 3 news classes, newspaper, multimedia tech, and this class, web 2.0/pln. Video announcements are a hit, thanks to Tyler. Our school is extremely cold, so I love web 2.0 when it’s in the commons (hint hint Mr. G). In art I love my project, which is a first. Actually, second but Miss A ruined my awesome toilet seat. School just isn’t as interesting this year and I’m ready to graduate. I’ll miss it though.

Vision Of Students Today

My vision of school is cold, and trapped. I wish we had an open campus, so when I can’t concentrate, that’s usually because I’m hungry. Open campus would allow me to go get my own food and my own amount. I feel like I don’t learn as much as I’m suppose to, but sometimes I think that’s because I’m a senior. I learned a lot the years before, but my senior year is just pointless. The lecturing, the powerpoints just are not grabbing my attention anymore. Plus it’s freezing.

Snow Days

So, we have had zero snow days so far this school year. So when we should have called off school, we end up having to drive on the terrible roads for no reason. Then, we get out at 12:30. WHATS THE DIFFERENCE? Why wait, so we can drive out in the worse weather???


Good idea CAM High School! So smart 🙂

My Toilet Seat..

I’ve been working on a toilet seat picture frame in art. I bought a white toilet seat, because I couldn’t find a black one, and spray painted it black. After it dried, I splatter painted it blue and purple. It looked amazing. Then today, I took some lime green sparkly ribbon that used from prom, and super glued it to make it look like a bulletin board. After that, I glued colorful buttons on the crisscross of the ribbon. It looked beautiful! When I went to turn it in, Ms. A was swinging it around saying how heavy it was….. and then she DROPPED IT!!

For our semester project, Celeste, Jordan, Whitney, and I are planning on making a facebook group. In the facebook group there will be horoscopes, weather, advice, and what’s new in the world. The reason we haven’t started yet is all Mr. G’s fault. He won’t unblock facebook for us, so it makes everything difficult. But, we do have an email account set up, so it will only be a little time till the facebook group is INVENTED! 🙂
