We also talked about lessons plan, and how what we have to do is not what everyone feels is the thing to do.

Here is a graph showing the comeparison of the students in West Virginia on IEP's compared to the next 3 poorest states.
West Virginia seems to have fewer students than the other states, but that is becuase WV has very people in the state to draw in information from. I think that if we did that based on percentages then we would see something different than we do here.

This graph proves the West Virginia is not doing too bad in the long run. We can see that WV is almost on task with the rest of the nation.

I know that word documents on the computer make peoples writing look more uniform and legible, but I think we should be allowed to do things hand written instead of only on the computer.
I just had to vent a little. Thanks for litening!

We were told to also read Multimodal Learning Through Media Link and answer the following questions (in a blog post):
Describe what Dale's Cone of Experience is?
A "visual metaphor" depicting types of learning, from the concrete to the abstract. It shows that the more we can do with the information the better we will remember it.
Is Dale's Cone of Experience logical? Factual?
The data shows that we remember more in learning when we see pictures/movies and interect with the data/information than when we just read about it. The data can't be found, but Dale's "bogus data" is more a representative of a "rounded-off generalization based on Phillip's experience and probably some test data, at the Ordinance School.
How does Dales' Cone of Experience comport with current research on teaching and learning in the assigned reading.
After the reading, comment on your opinion of the validity of Dale's Cone of Experience.
Visual Symbols are part of Dale's original cone. They are a small part, but they are still there. The difference with today's research is that it is based on better technology that is retilly available. I do agree with Dale's Cone because I think that Direct Purposeful Experiences will always be important in learning.
