So lets join together again for a blog. A blog about what? You may ask. I really do not know as of right now. I know that is normally not the way that these things are done, but I do not care. So this blog is just gonna be all kinds of BS!!! With some feeling. I know this called tech blog so guess I will start with that. Recently we have been working with Power Point, which is a great tool in the classroom the work place and for fun. I have many times used power point for slide shows in homework and for fun. I have made credits for movies. I have made active football plays. Well and now I have made an interactive slide show. Hurray for me. I am truly sorry for being so sarcastic, but I have a lot on my mind. Mainly is a class that is my seconded to last physics class I have to take. E&M, electricity and magnetism. I would be willing to say it is by far the hardest class I have had to take for my major. Well I bombed by midterm. And there are only three grades for the class. Homework, the midterm and the final. So as of right not the absolute highest I can make is a 72. That means I have to make a 96.5 on the final to get credit in the class. So in short I am really F'ed. This one class could in theory drop me to another year behind. One class!!!!!!! So far as a student at UT, I have just over a 3.0. I am not at all saying that a 3 is great, but I am not the smartest kid on the block. So I am really proud of my self, haveing a 3 as a physics major. So I guess thats my ramble for the year.

Back from break ready to learn. Haha. That is kind of funny, saying I'm ready to learn. I guess my statement is not as sarcastic as I think it is, because I have enjoyed working with inspiration, building diagrams. I believe the program could do a lot of good in some classes. The thing is I do not believe I will use it in my class room, but you can never know. I guess its good to have the knowledge to use all the tools you can. I saying that comes to mind is "fill up your tool box with a grand assortment of tools even if you do plan to use it for this job, because you never know what promblems you may run in to."

This second week of my tech class has been a great experience. We have been learning about informative websites like web quest. When using the web for student, teachers need to be careful and make sure the web site is credible and that information is correct and current. The website needs to be kept up, as in keeping links open and pages working. If the web quest you use passes the initial evaluation and test, it can be extremely helpful and a great tool to use in you class.

So this is going to be my first real post on this blog. The bad thing about this post is I am really under the weather. I would compare myself to a steaming pile of dog waste. While I am at class the first thought on my mind is not wow i get to learn about technology. The truth is these last two days my work in technology has been put on the back burner. You normally put a slacker title on a person like me. The thing is I think most of this stuff is really self explanatory if you work with computers at all. The thing is the majority of us need a little refresher in some minor computing. This week I have learned or relearned great number of tools to use during my teaching career.
