Well, there may not actually be 13 different options.  However, you have at least 3 options, and since there’s a 3 in 13, it must be close enough. 🙂

As always, please read ALL of Matthew 13 before you start reflecting and posting. Once you’ve done that, here are your 3 options for this reflection post:

  1. Normal writing reflection for those of you that enjoy tradition
  2. VLog (Video Log). Record you thoughts using a video camera (hand held or web cam) and then post it on your blog. For some how to videos, check out these links: http://bit.ly/gi1CtN and http://bit.ly/i5w981. The first video link is cool, but not as helpful. The second video is a little annoying, but full of useful details.
  3. Create an image (handwritten or digital) and then include a reflective description of how it relates to Matthew 13

Happy creating!

DUE: Friday, April 01 (PE) and Monday, April 04 (SC and EB)

I’ve posted a few things about blogging, posts, and comments. Here’s another useful set of guidelines I want you to check out. There are 10 questions to ask yourself before you post. You don’t need to ask yourself all 10 questions every time you post, but they are good guidelines to keep in mind.


The guidelines were taken from Kim Cofino, a technology facilitator at Yokohama International School in Japan.

I was inspired by another teacher, and I want to encourage all of you to make your own custom header (photo) for your blog. Your header is one of the main things that defines your page and tells others the kind of person you are. Also, by creating a custom header, you avoid any copyright issues.

First, where’s your header?
Go to: Dashboard > Appearance > Header >Upload

Second, what should you upload?
Anything! You should either use your own photos or use a creative commons site such as Flickr.

How can I better customize?
Try using a quick, free, and easy site such as Picnik to arrange a collage of photos (I recommend the set of 2 or 3 arranged horizontally). One thing to keep in mind is the size of your collage. The header for my theme is 760 x 190 pixels. You can also use Adobe Photoshop CS5, which is on all of the ICS computers.

We’ll go over these specifics the next time we’re in the lab.

Happy creating!
