Blog Post #1:
Why this exemplifies my best work:
The Lively Reflection is one of my best pieces of work because the Lively Protest was one of the most exciting things our class has done. We fell in love with the software, Lively, and then they decided to shut it down. We all got to speak our minds, and let other people hear our opinions. I got to thank all the people that helped us with the protest in my blog.

Blog Post #2
Why this exemplifies my best work:
The Reflection blog post is one of my favorite blog posts because i got to talk about all of our projects we had done up to that point. I had the chance to express the things i like and did not like about the projects. I also got to stress how important digital citizenship is to our youth and adults today.

Blog Post #3
Why this exemplifies my best work:
This is one of my best blog posts because i got to talk about my introduction video. My introduction video was so fun to make, and i really liked talking about the pictures i chose and why. I also got to tell everyone about the awesome website, Creative Commons. It is a website that lets you copy and use images without copy writing.

Digiteen Dream Team


The Digiteen Project and Digiteen Dream Team blog have been a major part of this year for me. I was so excited when we were assigned our first project. Mrs. Vicki told us we would be meeting, and working with kids from all around the world. The first big project we did with the website was the Collaberative Wiki. My group was Group 2C, we had the topic Digital Rights and Responsibilities. We all worked great together, and had a fabulous wiki to show for it.

Earlier this year, Mrs. Vicki showed us a virtual world, Google Lively. We all got avatars and were having a great time setting it up. Then we came up with the idea to teach kids digital citizenship through virtual worlds like Google Lively. Some people in the other class started teaching the 7th grade, but we realized that we needed to expand our teaching. With the fast rate technology is going, elementary kids needed to know about digital citizenship too! A few others in my class and I realized that Google Lively might be a little too advanced for the elementary kids, so we searched long and hard until we found the perfect website. We finally found Woogi World. We felt like Woogi World was the best website to choose because it stressed the important aspects of digital citizenship by playing games and having fun. The classes were a success. We wrote a wiki about our classes, and we had a blast teaching!
