Week 5 blog post

Blackboard is the first LMS to pop in my mind. After reading this article, it made me think how much I do appreciate Blackboard because if everything is kept up to date, there are no questions about due dates, assignments, or grades.

I can see something like Blackboard being very beneficial in K-12. From helping out the little ones when they forget what to do for homework by the time they get home, to helping prepare high schoolers for college. I think LMS’ are a great tool to hold students accountable for their especially because parents would be able to access it.

Hopefully, by the time I graduate and get a job, schools will be implementing a system like Blackboard and if not, I can definitely see myself having something alike in place.

Week 5 making activity

This week we made cubes with the Silhouette program. I tried out 6 of the tutorials, some that really stuck out to me was the sticky notes, pop-up, and glyphs. The tutorials were really simple to follow and gave written and visual instructions.

The author talks a lot about the connection between creativity and student learning, in your opinion, how are intelligence and creativity related?  Are the notions of imagination and creativity captured within any SOLs you have found?  If so which ones, and in what ways?

I believe that creativity depends on intelligence. To fully be creative you have to have some to a lot of knowledge on whatever you want to be creative on. For example, if you want to be creative and make another version of a song, you have to have knowledge in that field. I definitely believe that imagination and creativity is captured in SOLs. Mainly, we see creativity and imagination in science but could be applied to history as well. For science, we have to use our imagination to picture elements, atoms, states of matter, etc and be creative to draw what we think they look like. For history, we also have to use our imaginations and mentally picture events that have happened in the past.
