Week 15

A 7th Grader's Personal Learning Environment
I that screen for my homepage. I love how she can see all of her special sites on that one page. It would be much easier for me to get to my sites with that. I noticed a couple of sites that we both use (besides Facebook and such.) It is great that she seems so excited about this style of learning and that she enjoys the responsibility of making sure she does her own work.
I don't know if she uses Twitter, but if she could find the right pages I think it could be helpful for her also. I think that our Networks/Environments are basically the same. We both use experts to learn more about whichever topic we want to know about.

Question Marks
Two Questions That Can Change Your Life
This two-minute video really makes one think. What is your sentence? How do you want to be remembered? What is the one thing that you want people to think of when they see you? Mr. Pink points out that it was said that "a great man is a sentence." Instead of trying to achieve everything in the world, try for just one thing that will make you stand out. I have all of these plan to really do something important in peoples' lives. I guess I want my sentence to be something along the lines of "She pushed me to achieve my dreams."
The second question was, "Was I better today than yesterday?" I think that I do ask myself this question from time to time, with school related topics. I try to get better at finishing school projects earlier than the time before. I also try to better my grades from the time before until I can do no better. I think this is what he means for us to do with our entire lives. We need to try to better ourselves everyday in every aspect of our lives.Hopefully, this way whenever we get to the end our lives, we know that we have achieved what we wanted.
