My Visual Essay
My visual essay was a very interesting project for me. I mastered photostory, bought a microphone for my computer, and learned i did have a story that made me wnat to be a teacher. On top of that i found this project to be fun and easy once I got focused. I thought the two hardest things about this was the writing the essay and surprisingly the audio recording. The audio was difficult because i kept getting nervous, had the microphone to close to my mouth, and got carried away with adding audio. So, this meant i had to do my audio's many times. Two thngs i could have done better was to add more words to the pictures. I felt like I had a lot in the beginning and few at the end. I did this because the last part was diifcult to indetify what to put witht he pictures and the beginning was easier. It was rewarding to come up with a belief statement to identify what your teaching stragety, and what your beliefs are. Learning from your mistakes is not only a saying it is a life lesson. I would use this in a class room to wrap up a topic. So to go over the first world war i might have them make a photo story about world war one. I would also use movies by showing documentaries. This dosen't make me lazy because i will use these movies to supplement my teaching so the steudenst can get a visual interpretation of the notes and class discussions.
