We learned seconlife on this site https://secondlife.com this week and registered on it. This is so enjoyable site. We selected our character and our teacher showed us to what can we do in this programme. Residents can explore the world (known as the grid), meet other residents, socialize, participate in individual and group activities, and create and trade virtual property and services with one another. Second Life is intended for people aged 16 and over, with the exception of 13–15-year-old users restricted to the Second Life region of a sponsoring institution. Second Life is used as a platform for education by many institutions, such as colleges, universities, libraries and government entities. In Second Life, residents can go to social gatherings, live concerts, press conferences and even college classes. They can do a lot of things you can do in real life — buy land, shop for clothes and gadgets or just visit with friends. They can also do things that are impossible in the real world — avatars can fly or teleport to almost any location. Some residents design short programs, called scripts, which give avatars or objects new abilities, including special animations or the ability to generate copies of other objects.
This week we learned to create a website with http://www.weebly.com . You can publish whatever you want to on there. You can design your site how you want to. Weebly offers a free online website creator. With a Weebly site, people can start their own business, communicate with their clients, showcase their achievements, and be an authority on personal and professional interests. All you need is internet connection. You can use any computer that is connected to the internet to build your free website using Weebly’s online site editor. The sign up is very easy and you will be ready to start building your free website immediately with no waiting.The real advantage of Weebly is that it requires no technical background to create a website yourself. Simply drag and drop elements anywhere on the page to make up your site. There are hundreds of templates to choose from. Switching to a different theme in Weebly is a snap. The Text, Images and other work you do on the site get applied to new template automatically when you change theme.
We learned three net sites this week. Firstly we log in eltpodcast.com . elt stands for English Language Teaching. ELT Podcast is the home of several podcasts for learners and teachers of English as a second or foreign language. It is so good for english language teachers. Then we log in www.npr.org that is a National Public Radio , is a privately and publicly funded non-profit membership media organization that serves as a national syndicator to a network of 900 public radio stations in the United States.It likes our TRT.
Finally we log in http://www.audioboo.fm that is used for digital audio recordings. It can be then listened to on the Audioboo website, listened via the apps, embedded in a user’s own website, Twitter, Facebook or Tumblr feed, and submitted to iTunes as a podcast feed. Image, location, title, description, category and tags can be enclosed with any uploaded clip. Registration is optional, but registered users have their own pages and feeds/channels akin to Twitter or YouTube. They can also send audio direct messages to each other, and collect playlists. Newly registered and anonymous users are given 3 minutes per clip to upload, though users can pay for longer record times. There is currently no upper limit to how many clips a user can upload, making the site popular with audio bloggers, diarists, journalists, teachers, and podcasters.

If you have difficulty in starting the prezi, click on this link : http://prezi.com/zaz6cpssbqxc/fgf/
Firsly we learned ‘nicenet’ today but our teacher didn’t give homework about this so Thanks God! 🙂 Then we went on with ‘prezi’ I like this very much’ It is a 3D presentation programme. One of the greatest innovations in education was the blackboard. For the first time in history, teachers could present their lessons visually and engage students to participate in the conversation. The whiteboard has done the same for business—helping us to explore and share ideas more effectively. Prezi is a virtual whiteboard that transforms presentations from monologues into conversations: enabling people to see, understand, and remember ideas.
“Prezi allows us to communicate design ideas with our clients in a highly engaging and dynamic way, liberating interesting conversations from the boredom of one-way presentations.”
— Randy Howder, Design Strategist, Gensler
I can’t say anything about this week’s subject because I didn’t go to the lesson this week 😦 but I know that my friends learned ‘hot patatoes’ and this is so nice programme according to my teacher. I went to my teacher’s room and asked some questions about this. I learned somethings about this programme it is so practical and enjoyable programme especally for preparing quizzes for students and evaluating their learnings.
We learned ‘dropbox’ today.Dropbox is a free service that lets you bring your photos, docs, and videos anywhere and share them easily. Today many people across every continent use Dropbox to always have their stuff at hand, share with family and friends, and work on team projects. Your files are always available from the secure Dropbox website. It is so useful. Dropbox allows users to create a special folder on each of their computers, which Dropbox then synchronizes so that it appears to be the same folder (with the same contents) regardless of which computer is used to view it. Files placed in this folder also are accessible through a website and mobile phone applications.
Our teacher firstly asked to us how many students use android phone here and which programs do you use on your phones. Then he talked about some programs that we can use our phones. He talked about especially socrative and QR programs. These programs are so useful for teachers. Especially English language teachers should use these programs because English language teaching needs so activities with group work and with these programs teachers’ work is getting easy and the lesson can be so enjoyable. In this age of advanced technology we teachers should learn to use technolgy. This week we signed in socrative and QR sites then we prepared our homework on these sites. I like especialy socrative because this is so useful and enjoyable.
Today we learned so useful programs. Firstly we learned pb works programme we had this account, then we learn edmodo. Our teacher showed how we use these programmes. After we worked on these programmes we learn drive.google.com this is so useful especially when we are teacher we can use these with our students or can say them use these with your friends especially your homeworks because they have online chat programme they can do their homework by chatting also we can use especially drive.google for group work for preparing presentation. Thanks to this we can do our homework without gathering.
