Thing #6


Astros Box Seats--An once in a lifetime experience!

Mashups & 3rd Party sites: I have heard of mashups before, but now I have a better understanding what this term means. I really enjoyed exploring all of the different things you can do with your pictures using the Big Huge Labs application. Students can use this application as an alternative way to give a book report. I can use the motivator application to create posters using different school related pictures and displaying them around the library. I also enjoyed playing with the FD Toys' Trading Card Maker. This application would be a great way for students to write a character analysis from a novel we are currently studying in class.


  1. I remember having box seat opportunities in the old Astrodome days...they were fun and nice memories to relive while looking at your collage.

    P.S. Be sure to add hot links to sites and info that you discuss in your posts. That is a strength of the 2.0 world.

  2. Thanks for the advice, Vaughn. I tried to add a hyperlink for the Big Huge Labs website by clicking on the icon, pasting the URL into the pop-up window, but somehow it didn't post. What am I doing wrong?

  3. OK, I figured it out. I forgot to highlight the text first before add the hyperlink. I will remember to add hyperlinks to my future blog entries. May the force continue to be with me!
