 MY REACTIONS TO THE 4 SYNCHRONOUS TOOLS ARE:

 

 Name of tool

 

ZOOM :WEB CONFERENCING(SUSIE)

 

  • Summary of the tool and its general function/use
  • A Blog is like a website an d set up by one person(an administrator) it is like virtual conversation with regular entries by the administrator presenting information which may include links,text,images,graphics and videos, whose use is to give information and generate a response. It can be used as a website and used to describe events using graphics and videos along with type. But entries display in reverse chronological order.
  •  
  • Who would benefit from the use of this tool and why

 

A blog can be used to communicate ideas, sell something share, save events and pics and exchange and teach ideas ,so an educator,an artist,someone selling something, personal journaling.

 

Typically this tool is a used with a community, whether it is as a online course or in an online group and it encourages networking. Usually one person has an opinion about an event or experience and wants to share it with the group and gains support with comments.

 

  • What types of interaction/higher order thinking/creativity does this tool promote? How? Why?

 

A blog can definitely improve writing skills for someone, allowing also for more creative submissions and thoughts, instead of simply including a written paper,a blog allows for multi media and thinking outside the box and with the shortened responses afforded in a blog ,more students are apt to respond.

 

  • Advantages of using this tool
  • Since students of today spend much time reading online, this is a great tool to engage and encourage writing and reading skills. Its easy to set up and add to a class and would help students who are shy to speak up with their ideas.
  •  
  • Disadvantages of using this tool
  • The comments do not show up automatically and as you add a new post it goes at the top so in order to make the posts chronological you have to edit the publishing date which can be tricky to realize also it can be confusing how to set up at first and to remember to publish or you lose your data.
  •  

 

o    Some creative ways this tool may be used to support distance education. Think outside the box. Look at your specific setting. How you may use the tool will vary from others in your group. It is great informal way to teach a class. Students feel less intimidated by responding in this way and it is like a virtual conversation, it can be made private or public and you can invite people to join and add images, videos and change the colors and fonts and a great designing tool.

 

  • Your personal reaction to utilizing this too
  • I love this tool and it is great not only for teaching but for online journaling and to keep an online digital portfolio of word docs and images and even for pictures of a personal nature, it is a great way to organize  and keep files and images that are easy to access and even to organize ideas.
