The Final 2 Presentations

On Monday the last 2 groups had presented to the class about their findings on Skype/Elluminate and Games. I found both presentations very interesting as they held my interest longer than other presentations had before. Skype was impressive. I never knew about Skype or how it worked but after seeing the boys do their thing it got me curious. I'll probably explore more about Skype later on.
The second presentation was on games in the classroom. I loved this presentation for a couple of reasons. First, I like playing games. I'm not a die-hard gamer or anything but to tell you the truth the last gaming system that I've owned was a Super Nintendo. Ah... sorry I was getting nostalgic there for a moment. Anyways, the second reason I enjoyed Dan & Tyler's gaming presentation was because the technology that is being developed is just incredible. I was getting excited when I saw the painting program for X-box and the interactive menus/games that they are developing. All this technology is going to be useful for teaching, I think. What about you? Let me know. Over and out.


  1. Oops I forgot about the good, bad and ugly presentation as well. You guys did good. I liked the Mike Nantais picture.

  2. Good post Steven, Super Nintendo that takes me back too! I agree that painting program looks really exciting, it will be up to us to try to find useful applications within the classroom. I think if nothing else its a great way to get kids moving around and expressing their creativity.
