For the past two weeks, my PLN group has been working on creating a Mini Unit Curriculum in Social Media Basics. It has been an interesting experience, learning more about Schoology and other platforms as the design process developed. I also learned about myself, and how much I do not like group work. It is not that I do not like group work period, but with my irregular work schedule and the time zone difference among group members, I start to feel stressed when I am waiting for a response or feedback.
We are almost finished, thank goodness. I explored Powtoons (it has been on my to do list) and created a short advertisement to the Mini Unit Curriculum. I only explored the free version of Powtoons, and I was impressed with the selection of graphics and the audio provided. It is a different way of presenting, and I felt like I designed it but not really because all I was doing was choosing a template and graphics to fit my presentation. I think if I spent more time on it, being able to customize it to my liking, I would find more ways in which I could use it.
Only one more week left!
