Where I’m From, Ketchikan AK

How I got here. – Created with Haiku Deck, presentation software that inspires;

I have learned from this activity that technology can be useful for teaching to an extent. It can make projects easier to organize and research. Haiku deck is a great example of a program where you can easily jump in and get started and programs like Google are great for research. On the other side of the coin technology offers many opportunities for distractions and procrastination students can easily get caught up on Facebook or messaging each other on google docs. I think a good way of utilizing technology involves having the students complete what they can before bringing out the computers. For example have them plan out their slideshows on paper before starting on the computers.

When using technology to teach it isn’t just about learning the subject matter, allowing the students to learn how to use technology productively is also an important skill. Many students grow up to use similar technologies at work and throughout their daily lives.

  1. Hello Luke,
    Thank you for your presentation. You have a long list of hobbies and I’m thankful that you describe them here. I have been to Ketchikan, but never gone to a play there. Have you been to perseverance theatre here in Juneau? If you have, would you say it would be a similar experience? If you haven’t, could you describe the theatre in which you preformed? Also, what specific books do you remember reading while growing up and where would you read them?

  2. Luke,
    Nice Haiku Deck. I like the brief look into your past through this web application. I think it helps to get to the point. I also played with a lot of legos when I was a kid. I enjoyed the challenge and creativity that each little piece enabled for me. I look forward to getting to know you and the rest of the class more.
