Adult Education and the Golden Girls February 15, 2009

I was doing some work on my EAHR 211 class and one of the readings took me to a YouTube page where there were search results for Adult Education. I watched this one that is a clip from the Golden Girls because I thought it would be funny and I can remember watching the show when I was just a little tyke.

The video not only relates to adult education but also to another class I am taking…EFDN 308 – Women in Education. Fortunately, as a woman and as an adult education student, I have not experienced anything like what Blanche experiences in this clip. Hopefully this is not indicative of other people’s experience, and I don’t believe that it is. Still thought that you might enjoy the clip, have some laughs and maybe think about the experience that women have as they continue on in their education at any level.

I downloaded Microsoft Photo Story 3 today to get started on Tech Task 9 so that I don’t get more behind than I already am! It was so easy to use…it took me no time at all to start and finish my project.

I can definitely see how this would be an excellent tool to use in the classroom. Students would have so much fun, the software is free, it is easy to use and it could fit with any curriculum or subject area! just think how much students would enjoy showing their parents a Photo Story project that they made in class today! The possibilities are endless!

I have uploaded my completed project to YouTube already. I don’t know that it is any good, but I had fun and I love my brothers and the ‘warm’ vacation I took with my older brother, Steve, to see our baby brother was so much fun!

Hope that you enjoy!

I have no idea how to embed a video into my blog. I have tried from TED by copying and pasting the embedding link into my post and it just comes up as jibberish….what am I doing wrong? If anyone can help that would be great!

I can get them to embed from YouTube…don’t know what I am doing wrong…
