This seems to have been more difficult for me to sign in and make a post onto my blog using my blackberry, than it was the first time I attempted. The browser was redirecting itself to the search engine, everytime I attempted to access the dashboard. Finally, after many days, and attempts, this is the fruits of my perseverance...a late night post! The audio recording that I've been editing, has been interesting. I'm thinking of uploading a reading of a children's short story book, that I had recorded. I've also been searching the internet for useful websites, and will also be posting some onto my blog to access. Now to find a wireless connection I can access with my laptop...until then.

Now, the minutes are counting down, to what will be the final presentation for my assignments. This class has been unlike any other previous courses have been, and i'm grateful for the change. The season of summer always, for most, finds us outside, enjoying the activities that could only be enjoyed during this time. The frozen air of winter is far behind us....or is it close in front of us? However you see it, the time to enjoy the outdoors is now, and as my previous postings of 'The Ex' shows, i'm planning on making up for lost time, being locked indoors by the ice and snow! Enjoy!
Ok...so maybe i didn't add to this blog, as much as i thought i would! I've been trying out all these new programs that we have been introduced to, and making myself dizzy. The funniest thing so far, has been listening to out own voices, as we attempt these videos, and slideshow narration. It's been pretty funny. I'm contemplating whether or not, i'm going to continue this blog into the future...there are many options. I could create a new blog, and discontinue this, or modify the layout and such.....only time will tell.

This is the first post, via my blackberry, so I hope it works out! The layout seems a bit different, by all the options and functions seems to still be available. I went to The Ex yesterday, and had more of an awesome time, than I excepted to!! I'm really glad I decided to go, instead of doing the usual, and stay home instead. I have some pics I will attempt to post, and hopefully they will turn out fine! Here goes nothing!

Here i am, at the Dauphin BUNTEP Centre, listening to Dr. Henley lecturing about Milton Freedman, and Kaynes....anyone remember "Smith, Kaynes and Freedman" from 'Canada from WW11 to present'....seems pretty cool! LOL!! The male to female ratio seems to be similar to the BUNTEP Centre in Portage/Long Plain. (3:12)...listening to Dr. Henley again, is like finding your favorite radio station after many, many years.....soothing. :) I'm collecting pictures and maybe video if i can find some individuals who aren't 'camera shy' and would like to offer some information from their perspective. This BUNTEP Center located in Dauphin, has found their third office, in the past two years. Im sitting in Mackenzie Middle School...and the hallways are CLEAR!!!! I'm impressed! The Coordinator `Barry` seems to be very helpful. He had a laptop and 'office space' all setup and ready to go for me by the time i got here!! Very efficient and professional. I've noticed some similarities to our own BUNTEP office....a table of 'food and goodies' is set up, coffee/mingling area, and the coordinator is super-friendly!! (like Tania) :).....Well, imma update you later on today, and hopefully add some photos to this blog!! Check you later~ hope this blog is interesting enough to read...and maybe add a commment?! lol

Now, here i am...starting the week late, no entry for the weekend, but imma try and summ it up for ya! First, Thursday is a blurr...did it happen? The endless movies, and countless times i tried in getting my sister's cat to come down from one of many oak trees in the yard, i'm suddenly here in class, late for the countless-consecutive time in a row! The weather has been ideal enough to finally get the 'yard' looking like a lawn. (the grass was 3ft high)! But from another perspective, i'm doing my part, producing more Oxygen from taller grass....or something like that. Now, fast-forward to tomorrow, where i'll most likely be super-nervous at the BUNTEP Centre in Dauphin!!! Going to check it out, and hook myself up to their wireless, hopefully post some pics and audio to this blog, so if you're following, and wanna ask a question to Dr. Henley, or the students attending classes at the Centre, send me a post, and i will gladly ask and record questions and responses.....until tomorrow!!

Now...today! This seems to be the most interesting day, so far!! We've started practicing 'mindmapping' using Mindmeister....this is super-neat! The interactive, collaborative aspect of these assignments is what is beginning to peak my interest! In creating lesson plans, and implementing assignments, these interactive web-based programs allow several possibilities as to how assignments can be completed by students! I'm sure i'll have more to say this afternoon, after creating a mindmap for my portfolio.....fun times!

Now...after taken a few minutes of being frustrated with 'stupid'twitter, i've come to the conclusion that maybe i should give it another try...or should i? I deactivated the account i created, but recall scanning the screen before my account was deactivated, and read something about 'change the email, etc...or it won't work'. Well, it didn't say 'won't work' but something like that! AUGGHH, i feel so frustrated, that i actually stopped listening for a few minutes....and i think the voices in my head got scared, because it was completely silent inside my cranium!! LMAO.....now, what's for lunch??!!!!

Ok....so today was interesting, as all days have been since starting this class. We reviewed GoogleChrome, sharing different types of files, including pictures and text, presentations, and also did a whole class conference call, using skype. This ''skype" is pretty neat, and reminds me of the videophones that are out there, but this is web-based. Pretty neat! Google is actually more than just a search engine, and includes several types of tools, to utilize and use to produce interesting and motivational/inspirational graphics, and design awesome presentations! The collaborative aspect of google is really cool! Anyway...time to get out there, and use this newly-acquired knowledge! Check you later
Ok....i was in the city this weekend, and did not go on-line....shameful, i know. I've recently watched some movies, where blogs have been included in the story-line. It seemed alittle interesting, since i have only recently began this blog. Now my confession.....i was too lazy to go to student services so that i might get a password for the free wi-fi in the exchange district campus. Gee...imagine, me...lazy

Well, this is the beginning of the blog I have created. Having never started a blog before, i'm planning on mumbling and studdering along along, until i get the hang of this. I actually just watched a movie about a person, writing a daily blog for 365 consectutive days.....hmm, sounds interesting. Would i have time??
