Week 3, 4 and 5

Everytime I try to post here Google makes me reset my password so I'm getting frustrated. I tried to catch up today by doing 3 weeks of lessons. I had fun with Flickr and made a magazine cover of my son and his friends. This is a picture I took during our trip to Spain in March. This is one of the reasons I am so behind, but it was a great trip.

I ordered a print of this and plan to make some presents this way.

I wasn't as excited about the RSS feeds. The newspaper in the morning and some TV news at night is enough for me. I signed up for 2 feeds, but 10 would be impossible. I don't want to spend that much time with the computer or any other device.

The generators are fun. I had no idea there were so many kinds. Both my sons could enjoy that film plot generator. I wonder if students cheat by using the one for writing poems. I took this cookie from the generator blog and wrote my message on it.
I looked through some of the 2.0 awards. I had heard of Craig's list but never tried it. Very useful not only for shopping but seeing local events. Rollyo seemed so commercial, but maybe I wasn't using it right.

I finally got my avatar on by blog. Everytime I tried it said I needed a new password for Google. Now I'll start working on the other assignments. It will be important to tell partipants the steps to this process: To make avatar go to After making avatar choose the export option on the right. Select the HTML code in the center of the page and go to edit and copy. Then sign into your blog and choose layout. Paste (Control V) the HTML code in the PAGE ELEMENT marked HTML/Java Script. Then move that PAGE ELEMENT to whereever you want your avatar to appear on your blog.

School Library Learning 2.0

Week 1: I watched the presentation on lifelong learning. I think that the overall message is that the right attitude is the most important aspect, as it is in everything in life. I'm used to watching presentations on the internet so this was easy. My only problem was I couldn't get the attachments to print.
Week 2: I set up this blog! I have been meaning to look into this, so already I have found this 2.0 class to be useful. This was easy! I'm getting a late start on this because I'm already taking another online class on internet searching (trying to get the last unit needed to move up the payscale). And I just went to Spain for 10 days. BAck to work on Monday so like everyone time is my biggest problem.
