Show #1 for My Portfolio: Coffee Klatch with Maria Knee

This show was a discussion about planning for teaching technology to primary students. I asked for input to my lesson plans from Maria Knee, since she teaches kindergarten. Notice the forceful patience that Maria uses in pointing out how I need to let the children actually use the computers on the first day. Notice how tired I am talking at 8 a.m. on a Saturday morning.

Technical notes:

  1. Uneven sound quality was "fixed" with Levelator. I promise to pay more attention to sound issues in my next program.
  2. Editing was a bit choppy. I was trying to get rid of a bunch of circuitous chat that was about finding information, etc. and not on topic. More attention to fine details in editing would serve me well.
  3. I know, no music. I'll add sounds on the next show.
I have a theory which is "JUST DO IT!" Sometimes quality is lacking (this is shown in some of the rougher quality audio my kids did in my class last year). The advantage, it gets done, the disadvantage is that it's not "polished" I'm getting sick of not having this assignment done, so I "just did it". I promise more care in my next endeavor.

Just do IT!

Many times the just do it method is what gets me over the hump and then I am able to focus more on the project. So, know that you are still moving forward and you are not STUCK. Good job.
