    We’re all in this together


    I think collaboration is such an extremely important aspect in educational systems today. The web has made all kinds of collaboration available to teachers, students, and administrators.

    This is the ringtone I made for my Audio Assignment! I made it using the effects on Garageband. It was pretty simple, but actually took my a while because I played around with lots of different sounds. (2 Stars)…

    Radio Broadcast Reflection


    This assignment was both difficult and fun at the same time. I really enjoyed figuring out Garageband on my mac. Although it was interesting, it did take a lot of time to figure out how to combine tracks and edit the tracks after we recorded them. I had a hard …

    Where I’m From


    I’m from the white house with blue shutters

    From a two-story tree house

    And the sound of cars being made


    I’m from “these …
