In this term in IT, I have been busy with several projects about "Education For All"
I followed the design cycle throughout my projects:


To begin with, I started looking for information and pictures from different websites. I took screen shots of facebook pages, Flickr pictures and google sites. Once I developed some knowladge on the subject, I began designing an Iweb.

I put surveys, pictures and information onto my Iweb, that all connected to my topic "Education for all". When I finished my Iweb, I began putting my pictures onto an animoto and voicethread. On the animoto, i chose a song to play with the pictures. However when i made the voicethread, I recorded my voice to explain the pictures. Once I finished both of hese, I embeded them onto my Iweb.

The final part of my project was to make a brochure. I erally enjoyed using pages as it has good colours and templates, and of course its easy to use. I found lots of pictures and information to put on my brochure that all connect to World Education. I like my brochure because its colourful and fun.

Throughout the project, I have been updating my blogger. This is a good was to remember what you have done in previous lessons. This project has been a great experience and opotunity to study Worldwide Education.

Today I did some of our voice thread. I recorded a various voice clips over some of the images Alexandra (my partner) and I chose. Alexandra and I shared the work as we are a team. Once we were done this, i saved it and then put it onto my iweb and my blogger. I am pleased with my progress and am glad I have finished this voice thread.

I was not able to finish this lesson however I am sure it will be printed by the next one if I work diligently.

Children start attending school at as young as three years old. The first year if school teaches basically only simple things, such as writing your name, manners and counting. However not every child gets the opportunity to go to school at this age even go to school at all. An education is something very important in life. It can change ones future life status. From being a doctor, to unemployed, this is how much an education can change! No matter where the child is from, how old they are, how rich or poor they are, they all deserve the chance to learn in order for them to have a better future for them and their families.

There are many schools all around the world. From country to country, state to state, city to city and even towns to towns. They are each unique and different however all of them supply the same thing. No matter how they wish to do it, they still give an education.

Teachers are what supply education. They pass down their knowledge to us which helps us get smarter and well on our ways to living our own lives.
