Copyright :(

Can students upload their multimedia proiject to youtube? I think it depends on whether or not they cited everything and gave the original creator credit for his/her works. Otherwise, the original creator might feel that he/she has lost control of their own work. yes, there is a guideline for copyrighted material, in which a student cannot use more than 10 percent of whatever copyrighted material is present in the students' project.  Students don't need "permission" to use copyrighted material, if it is used for educational purposes and doesn't diminish any value from the original creator and his/her work.

The Learner That I Am

I happen to be a Multimodal learner . This means i have more than one strong preference . As a teacher , i could use pictures , posters , videos , and slides to teach students more about art . Being a hands on learner as well, I believe using demonstrations and letting students "play" with the material at hand can teach them to learn from the mistakes they might make.

Wordles and Polls . . . .

Wordles and polls both promote inventiveness in students . We used worldes and polls to form a better understanding of one another . In a classroom , I would be more likely to use polls to help my students study for art history tests or the terms used in certain drawings and paintings . This will promote a better learning environment because it will involve the use of technology and its certainly more fun than trying to retain the information from a dry textbook .

Worldes and polls also support and model creative thinking by engaging students and fullfilling that "want" to learn . Polls motivate the audience to think , therefore helping them retain the information better . Wordles spark creativity in students, giving them the idea that there is more than one way to remember certain terms.
