Abdul Abdi Placement Wrap Up

Teacher: Ms Pettie

Subject: English ESL D

Technology Used: Jing, Prezi and Google Docs


When we first meet Ms.Pettie she asked us to help incorporate technology into her classes especially her ESL D English class. She also told us that her ESL D class was reading Romeo and Juliet and they would have two assignments, a comic strip and acting out a scene from romeo and Juliet. Tal and I told her that for the comic strip assignment they could use a program called Bitstrips and they could record their scene from the play and edit it using Windows Movie Maker. So , Tal and I decided that I would prepare a presentation on Bitstrips and he would make one for Bitstrips. We both made our presentations on Prezi and incorporated Jing videos into them. We then went to MS.Pettie’s ESL D class and presented our Prezi to them and we also gave them some time to get familiar with each program while we walked around and helped and answered any questions.

Possible uses in other classes/subject areas:

Bitstrips and WIndows Movie Maker could be and I assume are already used in most Media arts and Grapic Design classes. Also, most English classes do the same comic strip and acting out a scene assignment, so bitstips and Windows Movie Maker could also be used in there as well. Also students in almost all classes ( English, Social Science, Science, Languages and Business) could use Windows Live Movie Maker  to create videos that could help make a  more entertaining and captivating presentation. In conclusion, there is the ability to use these two softwares in most subject areas.
