Today in class we worked on our Imovie. My group and I are working on Blackbeard the Pirate. I learned alot about him that I never knew. Blackbeard was a famous pirate. We acted out a skit! My technology choice is an article from that talked about how technology makes life alot easier! They talked about how parents should be watching out for their kids. Technology is now a nice way to entain yourself! This article said they worry about kids and their little techno-toys! They said that technology's Myspace is just like hanging out with a neighbor. And instant messaging is meaningful communication. They said telivisions and computer screens shouldn't be put infront of kids intell they are somewhere older than 3-7 years old. Cell phones, computers, Ipods, etc. are far down the list from things to worry about kids. They also mentioned that the Internet is a big invention and that it is hard to measure such things in present tense!

Dustin Blog Post

Today December 20th, 2006 we finished our iMovie projects. Josh, Alejandro, and Myself did ours on the Spies of the Revolution. We had to make a storyboard, and a script because those are 2 of the 3 grades we are getting for this project. Today is our last day in this quater class, Technology Trends.

The Sony PS3 can either have 20 gigabytes or 60 gigabytes. 20 gigabytes costs around $500 online. 60 gigabytes costs roughly $600.

Josh Blog Post

Yesterday in Technology Class we started our iMovies. Alejandro, Dustin and I are doing ours on the Spies of the Revolution. We should be done in plenty of time.

Today in class we worked on our imovie research and scripts. Blake was gone so I didn't have to do much. TECHNOLOGY IN THE REAL WORLD- the technology that I'm going to talk about is the new ipod remodeled. The new ipod nano is now available in 2gb, 4gb, and 8gb. They hold 2,000 songs and are available in 5 colors- black, silver, fuschia, lime, and turquoise. They hold 25,000 photos and play audiobooks and podcasts. They have 24 hours of battery life. It is still 99 cents for a song and they also made it 40% brighter. It is a slimmer design it is .26 thin, the lengh is 3.5, and the width is 1.6 all measurements are in inches. SOURCES:

Well today at technology class we talked about our "iMovies"
iMovies are kind of fun, because you can teach other people about history.
For our iMovies we get 2 grades one for our Technology teacher and the other one for our History teacher.
Right now we were just picking our topics, and talking about our scripts.
Well thats about if for our technology class

In the real world;
Last week the "Roboexotica" festival of "cocktail robots" took place in Vienna, Austria. Around 35 robots mixed cocktails
Winner in the Cocktail Mixing category was the External Combustion Machine that mixes drinks through a recycled fuel injector from a Ford car
The Cocktail Serving award was won by the flamethrower-toting El Espanol Borracho - it apparently makes a mean flaming Spanish Coffee.


well thats about it.

Hey it's me Sam again telling you whats going on in the Technology world, The Real world, and in Technoogy class. I'll start with Technology class first. Well today all we really did was work on our podcast. Some of us added in music and pictures to our podcast, while others tried to finish up. Those who got done with their podcast worked on their imovie project by researching their topic that they have picked. In the Real world, or I geuss you could just say school, we had a Science test. Lately in History we have been studying about how America became independant from England. Honestly I find it quite interesting to learn about America's history. In the Technology world I found out that Nike and Apple computer worked together to form a sports kit. This sports kit is an ipod that goes in your shoe. It tells you the speed that you re going, how many caleries you have burned, and the distance you have gone. Researchers are afraid that thieves or stalkers could track you down with this device. They are now saying that it is safe now. Until next time, Sammi Hammi.

I read that the president George W Bush is going to try and make enough money to set up a base on the moon in 2020. 2024 it'll be done. They lost 6 people . They say that they are ready to set one up on mars. For every expedition to the moon it caused $124Bn. They astronauts are scared that bushes plan wil interfer.

Today in class we had to go to the library and Mrs.Morrow was talking about an imovie about history.And she said to pick a topic that we would like to work on and then she said we could get in groups of three. So me and matt moloun picked the first submarine ever made. then mrs morrow said that we could research on the computer and print information?
Hello everyone I am going to talk to you about last friday. Well on friday we finished up our podcast about whatever we wanted to make it on. Like I did mine on golf because everyone knows I love to play it. But a lot of people did other sports and other things that they like to do. Making a podcast is a lot of fun if you know how to use it, otherwize it can be difficult.
The technology I found on the internet was that kids are getting vilent video games that either show killing, cursing, and shows bad things about girls and boys. Some of these games are "Medal of Honor" and "Need for Speed Underground." So if you are not over the age 17 I would not play these games. Well this is Blake from Nebraska saying so long. This was posted on 12/5/06.

Friday, December 1st

It's Finally Friday!! Friday December, 1st. Today in Technology Class we are working on our podcasts. Some of our podcast's topics are on baking cookies, taking care of your hair, and how to shop! We are using Garageband to record our podcasts, and we will be publishing them using Itunes.

In other news, The Japan Society for Rights of Authors, Composers and Publishers wants videos, posted on the popular video site "YouTube" to be checked before they are published. Daily over 100 million videos are watched on "YouTube." Last month alone 30,000 videos were taken off "YouTube" at the request of the Japanese entertainment group. YouTube's policy has always said that it will remove any copyrighted material upon request. The Japanese group has written to YouTube asking for a screening system for all the video clips that are going to be uploaded. Other measures such as posting messages in Japanese about "illegal uploads." The group also wants the YouTube uploaders to register their details and even face bans if they violate copyright. YouTube, owned by the popular search engine Google, has negotiated with some major copyright holders, and they've reached an agreement, that will let YouTube post copyrighted music videos and other videos in exchange for advertising. YouTube has licensing deals with CBS, Warner Music, Universal Music Group, and Sony BMG Music Entertainment.

Well thats all for now!

Wednesday, November 22, by Mrs. Morrow

I'll start with my current event in technology. Many of you may have played "Bejeweled" or "Bookworm" on the Palm last year. This article : is about the creators of these two palm games called "Casual Games." I have also heard recently that these same games can be downloaded to video ipods... for a fee, of course. That is what the article is about... simple, easy-working, stress-relieving games that you can play on portable electronics. The article said how successful they are recently, and the company said that it is because they don't get stuck on fancy graphics or sounds, but rather focus on a game that works and plays well. I know that even I love a good old fashioned game of Tetris every once in awhile to relieve stress!

Last Wednesday in class we were able to tie up several loose ends, starting with the remainder of our presentations about "Technology in the Real World." I learned some neat things-- from that handy doodad that UPS guys carry around to an amazing assistive technology device that Kelcey's mom uses to help her get around. I also learned about a brand of Twinkie-like cakes and stuff in Mexico that Anahi's brother drives truck for. Andrew, Matt, and Ashley all still need to share their Powerpoints and those will be due next FRIDAY.

We had a little bit of time to actually work on whatever we chose, as we will not start producing our podcast productions until Monday after Thanksgiving. I am excited to see what topics students choose for their first podcasts and ready for them to once again amaze me with their creativity and quick-learning in Garage Band.

Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving Break! Only 3 1/2 weeks until Christmas!

Tuesday, November 21, by Mrs. Morrow

Today we spent the first half of class putting the finishing touches on our PowerPoint presentations entitled, "Technology in the Real World." I was happy that most of the students chose some interesting people to interview. We had a variety of professions, from teachers to the medical profession, from agriculture to office workers. Students began sharing their presentations to the rest of the class. I could see good design principles put to use such as: similar color schemes and background templates to give the presentation consistency, no more than 4 colors per slide, keeping bulleted text short and simple (not writing too much text on a slide), and using transitions and animations with purpose. I want to encourage the students not to read their slides word-for-word, but rather, to add in personal insight and added information with a relaxed, informative quality to the speaking. No one really did anything more than was asked in the project. But we still have about half of the class to view tomorrow, so maybe someone will still impress me!

I'll tell you one thing that DID impress me... it was the patriotic collages that the class created and shared at the Veteran's Day program last week. Very Cool!! Here is Sam's just to give you a sample of the creative work the 8th graders are doing.

For our second time around the class for the blog post assignment, the students will still be required to write about what they learned during that day's class, as well as any outside information that they care to share. However, they will also be required to reposrt on one current event in the field of technology. They can get the information from the news and radio around them or they can choose to do some internet research. I have bookmarked several sites on our class delicious web links at:

My choice of current event technology article for today can be found at:,127796/article.html
Microsoft's brand-new operating system (OS) named Windows Vista, will be available for consumer purchase on January 30. I saw a demonstration of Vista this past summer and it looked pretty sweet. It is supposed to be the most stable Windows OS thus far and they have been working on releasing it for quite awhile. If you want to buy a new computer now, you may be able to get an upgrade voucher to get it when it comes out. Office Vista is pretty impressive as well... you may be able to find its new features online in a news article as well.

Well, we are mid-way through another quarter of OPS Technology Trends. Mid-term reports are being sent home today and I have to say that this group of 8th graders are doing very well. I look forward to continuing to explore and expand our horizons with the technology trends of today and the future.

Matt's Blog about Monday, Nov. 20

Yesterday we were in the highschool library for technoligy trends class. We talked about podcasts and how we were going to make them later in the quarter. Then we looked at ones made by other kids from last quarter. We also talked about showing our powerpoints about technoligy in the real world. Thats all folks.

Monday, November 20, 2006

Friday, November 17,2006 by Nathan W.

On Friday, we finished up on our powerpoints in class about the person we interviewed. We put animations and actions to objects on our powerpoints. Over the weekend Nebraska had a bye and Denver played San Diego and lost 35-27. Indianapolis lost to the Cowboys. So for now, So long.

November 15th by Paige

Yesterday we did powerpoints on someone we interviewed. I interviewed Mr. Gary Hostert. A teacher at OHS. I asked him questions on how he used technology in his life and for his job, Then I took that information and put it into a powerpoint. The other kids also did this. Some interviewed their moms, dads, uncles, aunts and some others. After school I went to basketball practice. Then I went home and did some homework. Well that's all for now!


Tuesday, November 14, 2006

November 14, 2006 by Dustin

Today Mrs. Morrow taught us a little bit more about Microsoft Power Point. We started making the power points for the kindergarteners again, because yesterday we were in the library, therefore we couldn't save them. We have to interview someone in the real world that uses technology in their job. I think I will be interviewing my dad, he must use a lot of technology in his job for like the vinyl cutting and all of that. That's pretty much all we did in class, but today we are wrestling at 4:00 pm. Good Luck to all of te wrestling boys!

November 13, 2006 by Ashlea

Today in class we learned what to do and what not to do when you make a power point, then to practice we started to make little power points for the kindergardeners. We were in the library though so we won't have those power points tomorrow, we'll probably have to start over, but thats ok. well I am gonna go make a power point for the little kids bye bye.

November 6,2006 By Emily Keyes

Yesterday in technology trend we had to find something new about the Mac books that Mrs didn't teach us. It was really easy because there is so much things that are new to us on the Mac books. There wear a lot of things that we didn't no. It was really fun just adventuring with the Mac books we also learned about a new project that we are doing photo shop elements about patriotism. We got to review some of the projects that fifth graders did they were really great.

November 2 sammi hammi

Today in class some people worked on a commercial, worked on their "Meet my Macbook" worksheet packets, and worked on their comic life (like Josh). The "Meet my Macbook" worksheet packets are supposed to help us learn about things on the Macbook that we didn't know. I think you know about the comic life but I'll tell you anyways. The comic life is a comic book about our life. For example say that you just met some one you should be able to hand them the comic book, without saying a word, and they should be able to see what your into and what some of your charicteristics are like. Anyways what was really fun in class was watching Mrs. Morrow film the commercial. Morgan, the conciler, was helping Nathan, the smart board, and Matt, the chalk board, sort through thier problems with each other. The commercial is based off of a PC vs. Macbook commercial, but we just used a Smart Board vs. Chalk Board theme instead. Mrs. Morrow did this commercial with us and some 5th graders. She is planning on entering it in a competition. See ya around.

Happy Halloween Everyone!!! Today in Technology Class we finished learning about Isafe and how to be smart and stay safe while using the internet. We learned about things such as spamming and identity theft, and how to prevent things like this and other things that can happen on the internet from happening to us. We also started a new assignment called "Meet My Macbook." For this assignment we have to answer questions about how our Macbooks work and we also have to find one thing about the Macbook that we didn't know it could do.
Outside of Technology Class today, in American History today, we continued our studies about the colonies and things also happening in England at this time. We also did some Halloween trivia. In English we continued talking about complex sentences, in science we had a vocab test, and in Math we did problem set 37. After school some of the girls had basketball practice, some of the boys had wrestling practice, and everyone else, that's not in a sport, went to P.E.
So I hope everyone had a fun Halloween!! Until next time!! ~Morgan

Wed. Oct. 25 Blake

On Wednesday we talked about making a comic life. The comic life means what we like to do when we are not doing anything or it means what we are about in our every day life. The first thing you do is go to the hard drive. Then go to applications and go to comic life. When you are there you then pick a template. Then you can pick either some pictures or you can just write in the templates. After you do all that you can put speech bubbles by your picture or writing. Then you are probably going to be done and you can go to save as. You will be done and you can print it if you want to. Well that is what we did on Wednesday and I had a great time doing that. This is Blake Bauer saying so long everybody!

Wednesday, October 25, 2006

October 24,2006 Kelcey

Yesterday in class we learned how to use the comic life that we have to do so the teacher can learn about what we like and what our personality is like. We have to look on the internet for pictures to put into our comic life. Doing the comic life is a lot of fun to do.

Let's try this again-- Information Literacy

OK, 8th graders. Now that we have had a good lesson on information literacy... including things like MAKING UP FALSE INFORMATION AND PUTTING IT ON THE WEB and POSTING INAPPROPRIATE THINGS ON THE WEB...maybe we should try this assignment again.

What do you think kids should know so that they know how to use the internet?

Thursday, October 05, 2006

"If it's on the Internet, it must be true!"

What do you guys have to say about this statement? This morning I want you to start class by reading the following article, located at: Tell me what you think. Are teachers not doing enough to teach you how to evaluate what you find on the web? Check out the "spoof sites" and see if any of them are believable to you. Try the "Steps for Skeptics" with websites you have seen recently. Does it give you more insight into how they were created?

After reading the article, exploring the links, and reflecting on the topic, it is time for you to write about what you think.

Click on Comment and tell me about what you think about kids your age using the Internet and believing too much, or not enough, of what they see. **Make sure you leave your first name (and it wouldn't hurt to spell-check!) so that I can give you credit for this assignment.

See you Monday!

Today Mrs. Morrow had us start on our podcasts. Podcasts are online broadcasts that just about anyone can make. Sometimes you can find podcasts about news and a good thing about that is if you miss the news on TV or the radio you can still listen to the podcast anytime you want. People also make podcasts where they talk about things they are interested in and other people can listen to them that share the same interest. I’m pretty excited about making my podcast; I’m making mine about drifting. I’m not sure that most people know what drifting is quite yet but hopefully my podcast will inform a few people about drifting.

Today was kind of a slow day. We watched the powerpoints people made about Technology in the World. After we all interviewed someone we turned their answers and opinions into a slide show. We watched most of the powerpoints but ran out of time and didnt see all of them. The ones we did get to watch were very interesting to watch and learn about different jobs. I dont think it really occured to all of us how much technology effects our lives today. Well that's pretty much all we did today. Until next time...

Yay i get the privalage of typing the first blog post! The school just bought us these cool mac laptops (they're soooo white!) We've just started this technology class with Mrs. Morrow and so far i've been using alot of programs and websites that i've never used before. I'm still getting used to using a mac though, all of the programs that im used to using on windows are not on macs. Later in the year we get to make an imovie for technology trends and social studies, killing two birds with one stone, really. Im kind of excited about using imovie because ive never used it before and alot of the programs on macs are easy to use. Well, thats about all!

Welcome to our Class Blog!

We are off to a super start for the 2006-2007 school year at O'Neill Public School. Each quarter a group of 8th grade students will be participating in a "Technology Trends" course. We will share what we learn and accomplish each day through our class blog, written by us: O'Neill Public 8th grade students. Armed with our brand new Macbooks, we are ready to explore and experience technology of all kinds. Learn and grow with us as we experience the latest and greatest in the world of technology and use it to help expand our horizons for today and tomorrow.
