Dear digitools colleagues.

The second week was very interesting as we start to explore tools and use them in the context.
I wasn't there most of the days. I just catch up most of the tasks at the end of the week.

So, I have

1. selected the three pictures 1B, 2A & 3 C (character, setting and plot) to write my 50-word story starter.
2. shared my 50-word story starter in the comment area in Week 2 wiki page and have commented on two of my colleagues.
3. explored the three online tools for creative writing and have shared two tools (Creative writing Prompts & Bitstrips) and how to use them with my colleagues in our Edmodo Group.
4. explored the online collaborative writing sites (selected MixedInk), have chosen Anna's' starter and have expanded it.
5. shared my writing expansion based on Anna's starter using MixedInk. But as I stared the task so late, I didn't find someone to collaborate with me to complete such story.
6. reflected upon the collaborative tools exploration and their use in the classroom in my digital portfolio.

7. I didn't find time to explore all the tools mentioned in task 4. However, I gave Photopeach a try and I liked it.

I'm so sorry, in week 2 ... I was not a very active participant as in week 1.
I wish I would be in Week 3.
Thanks my dear moderators and colleagues for this fabulous experience!

Hello Classmates
I have finished Week 2 objectives and loved everyone.

I started a story and other people continued commenting That Darn Parrot password thatdarmparrot on The Story Kitchen. I tried to add to other people's stories and have not done so. In some cases, I was unable to click and add. I plan to continue reading and writing.
I explored all the writing tools and reviewed them in my blog. http://teachingknowledge.wordpress.com
I plan to explore all the tools in the presentation section when my semester finishes, next week.
I am now delving into Week 3 activities.
I love this course. Ellen
