A Quick Fire is an in class assignment for my Master’s of Arts Educational Technology program where we are given a limited amount of time to create a specific project using a tech tool, sometimes the tool is specific and sometime we were allowed to use a tool of our choice. Each assignment is specific to what we are learning and helps us learn about the topic while exploring our creativity and sometimes a new tech tool. Below you will find a list of Quick Fires and the links to the ones I made. I think it’s amazing to see what you can do in a very limited amount of time.
1. Glogster: Given this assignment to introduce ourselves to the class and to introduce of to the technology program we were about to dive into. This was the most difficult tool to learn as it was the first and the learning curve is pretty steep. I was definitely made to feel like my kiddos when I give them something that is difficult and they just want to give up, as I wanted to, but I did not.
2. Personal Learning Network (PLN) A network of people, organizations, and resources to continue the learning process. My PLN has grown tremendously over the past month.
3. Used tagexdo to play taboo today can you guess my word?
4. We used Mozilla Popcorn Maker to remix videos and images to learn about education technology theories. I did MOOCs.
4. We made infographics to teach about learning theories. I used easel.ly
6. We made paper circuits as a way to illuminate something that we had learned so far in the program. This was also the beginning of our Maker movement project where we were playing with different maker kits.
7. Today we played the game Two Truths and One Lie with QR codes. Can you tell which one is the lie.
8. Made postcards of our experience while in Galway, MAET and technology, then wrote to our future selves.
9. We made a 5×5 video today to learn about the basics of shooting a video, planning, production & editing.
