    What to take away …

    Hangover or Dads of the Year?

    So when creating my fan fic project I wanted to do something funny.  So I took what I thought is the funniest movie ever “The Hangover” and put a spin on it as if the movie was about the Dads of the Year.  In reality though the movie is about how these guys get so ...

    Future DS 106 Cyber Students

    If you plan on taking this class and have an old crappy PS I would reconsider taking this class.  Maybe wait until you get an updated computer before taking this class because if not it really makes this class a lot more difficult than it needs to be.  I am not in any way telling ...

    Too Restricted Or Not?

    I just finished reading both Praxis 2.0 article and the Dr. Mashup article and as an education major some of this hit home for me in the ways as a teacher you are so restricted to teaching.  As teachers you feel like your curriculum is very limited due to what you can and cannot say ...

    College or NO?

    I am trying to decide whether to take pictures of Berry throughout a day of college with me.  Like class, the nest for lunch, the gym, typical everyday routine.  Or would that be too boring of a project?

    The radio is not just music

    The first 30 minute radio I listened to was Bonaroo Radio.  During this radio show their music in the background made me feel very very calm.  The music really low playing with their voices really draws you in.  Great job with these sound effects guys!  I also think the part about September 11th was very ...

    American Life “Switched at Birth”

    I listened to the story “Switched at Birth” from American Life radio international.  As I first started listening to this story I was really not interested and the introduction did not grab my attention at all.  The characters voices one was way too “movie style voiced” and the other was crying and tearing up so ...
