FINAL REFLECTION

       

            This is my last reflection. In this reflection, ı want to share my opinions  about call course.  When ı heard the course name, ı was afraid of this course, because ı’m not good at computer and social networks ,so ı felt bad. I thought, this course is difficult for me, but ı had to attend thid course.

           I realized, ı didn’t know social network very well. Thanks to call, ı  learned a lot of new things with call course. I discovered internet( social networks). Now, ı have a blog and ı  can share my opinions, feelings and thoughts on different topics and subjects.  People can read them from all of the world. Then we talked about facebook,Twitter in the course. ı had Facebook account ,but ı haven’t got Twitter account before. Now ı have a Twitter account. Thanks to call, ı learned a lot of useful onlines  groups on the facebook and joined them. These colloboration groups can be useful for  English Teachers.It is very useful because we can dowloand activities, materials and we can use ıt. Our views about English can develop with it.

            I think, this course is very useful for us because ı learned a lots of informations about technology. For example,  dictionary merriam webster, dropbox, edmodo, press reader,Ted talks,prezi etc.These are very useful for students. Especially, ı like press reader because we can read newspaper with it and we can read other countries newspaper.

         In this course,ı learned how to prepare digitalstorytelling. I think, this is the most important one, we prepared our digital stories with movie maker and story jumper. I didn’t like movie maker but ı like so much story jumper because it is very easy and enjoyable. We can use story jumper for our students in the future. It is very benefical for their language skills.

    Briefly, ı didn’t know content of call course in the beginner of the term, so ı was afraid because of this .Now, ı think call course is really benefical for students.

FIRST WEEK

           Before ı took this lesson, ı thought about it to large extent, because ı don’t know how to use computer very well. I use computer just for facebook. Then ı decide to take this lesson because tehnology is everywhere and ı have to learn ıt. The content of this course will be complicated for me but ı want to achieve ıt. Technology is in every part of our lifes and we can use it for education .

         Technology makes our learning and teaching more easier . we share everything about education easily and reach all information and it  is a big information source . If we know how to use it effectively,it can be useful for us,so ı should learn how to use ıt and when ı will be a teacher, ı can use it effectively.

WEEBLY

             This week, our topic is weebly. Teacher talked about it and said us ‘you will use it for your final task’ so it is important for me. Weebly is free website builders. We can create our  website with weebly. While ı was a first year student, ı had computer course and teacher teached us how to create website, but it is really comlicated. I didn’t learn it, ı think weebly easier than it.

             Firstly, teacher showed us how to use weebly, ı find it complicated  and ı was afraid because ı’m not good at technology,but  ı’m trying to learn how to use it.The weebly website builder includes many different templates and designs for us to choose from. I hope, ı will build a good website.

PODCAST

           This week teacher mentioned about podcast. He talked about four types of podcast . we can use them for  in higher education. Podcasting provides a means of publishing audio programs via the internet. With podcasts you don’t have to wait to hear something that interest you. You choose what you want to listen to. With podcast, we can share videos  and record our voice and publish it on a website .

          Secondly, teacher mentioned about NPR . there are lots of podcast about different topic .we can listen and download  them. Generally , there are lots of  interview and their language is clear. Students can use NPR because there are lots of authentic materials for them. It can be benefical for students.

          After NPR, teacher asked us ‘ Do you know ıTunes?’ . A few people said ‘ yes i heard it before but the others said ‘ no’.  iTunes is a software media player which was first released by Apple in 2001. We can listen music, watch film with itunes also we can download e-book etc.

       Lastly, teacher mentioned about Audioboo. It is a website which allows users to post and share sound files.  This week, we have a task about Audioboo, we wıll record our voice and we wıll publish it on the www.audioboo.com .

Digital Storytelling and Story Jumper

            This week, teacher talked about digital storytelling and story jumper.  Teacher asked us to prepare a digital story  with movie maker and  a story book with story jumper. Before ı don’t know story jumper, ı learned it  in this course. I think story jumper is very useful for making a book and it is very easy . After  teacher gave us the task, i  prepared a book with story jumper. Before i didn’t know how to use it but, i learned easily how to use it and prepared a story. I liked story jumper because, there are lots of material for making a story and if you want you can add your materials.

            When i finished my story book, i want to prepare digital story with movie maker but, movie maker is really complicated. İ don’t like movie maker. If you don’t know how to use it, you can waste your time.

            I think , stories are very beneficial for teaching English so, story jumper and movie maker are very useful. We can prepare new stories for children and we can use them  in the future because, children like stories also, students can prepare  new stories. They can create new charecters and they can develop their writing skills.

Ninth Week

 This week, unfortunately  i didn’t  attend the course but, according to my friends the topic is social media. Especially, teacher talked about facebook and twitter. They are so familiar to us. I am using facebook but,  i’m not a twitter user so, i don’t know twitter very well.

         Firstly, i want to talk about facebook. Facebook is a part of our lifes. Today, some people are  exaggerating to use facebook. They addicting it. Some people  check their facebook when they get up and then they wash their face. I am using facebook but, i’m not addicting it. I’m using it for  communicating , sharing picture, and education. Facebook is useful for education because, we can join groups and learning a lots of knowledge.

         I want to talk about facebook games. Some people  are using facebook just for games. They open the facebook and play games for hours. They are spending  their times this way. So we should know how to use social media.

        Secondly, twitter is most popular ones in the social media but, i’m not a twitter user so, i don’t know very well.
