Tech Task #5 is such a great project, and I was able to easily create all the different parts — I found images, added captions to them, added music and recorded my voice. However, I was not able to put them all together into a video because certain programs on my computer are not compatible with each other! I could not remember that last time I felt so helpless! This all reminded me of the reason I have tended to stray away from using technology in the past. As great as it can all be, there are always things that go wrong! And I absolutely hate when technology fails me in the middle of something.

My new goal for the semester is to stay calm when technology fails me. I want to be one of those people who can navigate their way through problems, and continue with it, problem solving and not freaking out! I know that there are so many amazing things that can be done with technology in a classroom and in a school, so it is important for me to overcome my anxiety when let down by technology!

    It would have been a lot easier with Photo Story 3 (which most of the class used). You could always try that – it’s a free download.

    But yes – stay calm. There are always solutions. Too bad they had to change Windows Movie Maker like that.
