The End of a Journey: Summary of Learning

The making of my Summary…

Maybe because I’m a bit nuts, I have always challenged myself to use a new tool for the Summary of Learning projects I’ve done for my grad classes with Alec.  This go-around was no exception.  I narrowed my choices down to two: Genial.ly and Sutori. Ultimately I chose Sutori because it had the least amount of options for creation!  Both can be used as presentation tools… but Genial.ly has WAY more capabilities than just a presentation tool and I did not want to fall into a rabbit hole.  Check it out for yourself!

Because I knew I wanted a way to include links to some of the content but still needed a way to share my learning in a “watchable” format for class, I “presented” my Summary of Learning on Sutori and captured it using Screencastify.  The link to the presentation on Sutori is here –SUMMARY OF LEARNING PRESENTATION.   When you view it as a presentation, you will notice the arrow beside some text.  Click on the arrow and it will open a hyperlinked site for you. 

The one link that I think everyone needs to explore is Top Tools for Learning 2019.  We have talked about or used a variety of these within our class this semester, but some of them are new to me and I am looking forward to exploring them.

As mentioned in my Summary and on Twitter, I curated a Wakelet of some of the Ed Tech we used this semester in class – check it out HERE.  I’d love to have more contributors – shoot me a message!  (and yes, I know I have a grammar error in my Tweet.  Ugh.)

As I mentioned, I used Screencastify to capture the entire presentation as well as to record a Star Wars Intro Crawler I created using part of our course syllabus.  Unfortunately this got cut from the presentation because my video became too long!  So, for your viewing pleasure, here you go!

 

 

A couple more tools:

I used Bitmoji for the cute little avatar likenesses – Bitmoji Kyla is way more put together than Real Life Kyla this last week, that’s for sure!

and I used Canva to create two of the images in the presentation:

Those are the highlights!  I hope you enjoy my summary of learning as much as I enjoyed my time in class this semester!

KYLA’S TOP TAKEAWAY from class:  Wakelet.  It has changed how I organize information in all aspects of my life.  Seriously.

I humbly present my Summary of Learning for EC&I 831.

Disclaimer:  I have a terrible cold and my nose is red and runny… hence, no webcam views of me.  You’re welcome.

  1. Kayla, thanks for sharing your summary. I particulary want to thank you for getting me onto Wakelet… I am just starting to use it, and I think it really is an invaluable resource! Thanks for making a class Wakelet as well, that might come in handy later! Hope to stay in touch on Twitter! 🙂 Teach on!

  2. Great work! I wish we taught in the same building … I love your passion for learning and being there for your students. I’m glad that you found Wakelet to be such a valuable tool. It’s so cool to see a tool like that and your passion come together to create so many amazing learning, sharing, and collaborating experiences. I’m looking forward to watching and learning more from your Wakelet Wave ride. I’m glad you took up the Twitter journey again. Glad I’m part of your PLN. Hope to also take more classes with you … get a lot from your perspective.

    1. That feeling is mutual, Dean! I would love to be able to pop into your classroom to see what you are doing with your students and to learn from you! I love watching your journey with your students through your active Twitter presence and I am incredibly thankful for the technology that will keep us connected. Your encouragement this semester for everyone in our class has been so awesome and I have thoroughly enjoyed all of our breakout rooms! I hope our paths will cross in another Masters class… or maybe somewhere beyond that! Much love and respect for you, Dean. Shine on!
