C4K November

C4K #1:
Aaron chose to write about the ice bucket challenge that recently went viral. He expresses his anger because people are doing the challenge without donating money.

My Comment:
Hi Aaron. I'm Alex from the University of South Alabama and I'm in Dr. Strange's EDM 310 class. The place where people are suppose to donate is It is feels good to know that kids your age are passionate about this cause. I agree with you that it's pointless to do the IBC without donating. The donations help fund treatments and cures for the disease, and that's with all diseases and their campaigns. Thank you for showing support. I hope you have a good semester.

C4K #2:
Christian W. and his class were told to write a paragraph using signal words (first, second etc.) to explain how to make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.

My Comment:
Hey Christian. I'm Alex from the University of South Alabama in EDM 310. Your post was good, it's clear you are telling the steps to making a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. You have a couple spelling errors, so be sure to check your spelling. You used your signal words very well. Just be sure to slow down while typing to avoid those mess ups. Good job!

C4K #3:
Jess' class was given words they were to use to tell about their quarter of school. Jess used the words forte, ecstatic, slothful, enthralled, and repulsive. Jess did a good job on the post; grammar errors were at a bare minimum and the "challenge words" were used correctly.

My Comment:
Hi Jess! I'm Alex Odell and I'm in EDM310 at the University of South Alabama. I agree the school year does go by fast, especially the older you get. The words you used were used correctly. You are very humorous also. I enjoyed reading your post. There are only a few grammatical errors in your post. Good job! I can't wait to read more.

Christmas break why you no here yet?!

Blog Post #5 Part B

I did not even know what a PLN was, much less how to start one. After taking this EDM class, I am VERY happy to say that I not only know where and how to set up my PLN, I know who and what to put on it. My PLN on Symbaloo has increased significantly. I not only have the C4T teachers, I have included the teachers I have met during observations. I also have many different websites like ALEX, Pinterest, Edutopia, and other helpful websites. I am very happy to have learn of PLNs, and I will be using them throughout my career to keep learning and to get new ideas.

Some websites given to organize your own PLN:

Here is some information about PLN:
