How is it related to other applications?

Movable Type has a newly enhanced dynamic page generator, using the smarty web template system. Written in PHP programming language, it will allow a webpage to change depending what information is "tagged" to appear on it. This requires extensive programming knowledge, but is welcomed change in the Movable Type community. Using this new tool, it allows for even easier integration with other web applications. For a complete tutorial on using this new technology, please visit the Movable Type's developer guide. http://www.movabletype.org/documentation/developer/hacking-movable-type.html18.

Movable Type can be used with other applications such as YouTube.  Using the background tasks functionality in Movable Type, "this plugin will query your YouTube account for your latest videos. When it sees a new one, it will create an entry in your blog for that video. Various properties of the blog entry are used" 3.

Movable Type can be used with other applications, such as Facebook. Using Facebook Connect, Movable Type automatically displays a commenter's Facebook user name and photo next to their comments.  Then, Movable Type automatically lets all of a commenter's friends on Facebook know about the comment via the mini-feed on that commenter's Facebook profile. This helps drive traffic to your blog and your content, not just from your community, but from the social network of everyone who participates on your site. 4

Another application Movable Type can be used with is WordPress, to see more about using Movable Type with WordPress visit this site: http://codex.wordpress.org/Importing_from_Movable_Type_to_WordPress.

Using Movable Type in Educational Situations 

There are several general ways that Movable Type can be used in all levels of education. Literacy is a very important part of our current education system and Movable Type can improve students' reading by allowing them to read web pages and blogs that were created by other users. It also improves their writing skills by allowing them to create their own web pages and blogs.

Movable Type can also create connections that were not previously possible in the regular classroom setting. With Movable Type students can communicate with other students or experts in a field of study, who previously could never have visited the classroom due to geography. 5

Elementary

Movable Type can be used on the elementary level as an exercise in reading and writing. Student journals could be created online to let the students reach a larger audience and practice writing skills. The topic of the student blogs could be about a particular reading assignment, a science experiment that they are performing, or just about their daily lives.

Movable Type could also be used at the elementary level to let students talk with other students in different locations. Elementary aged students are very interested in speaking with others about where they live and what their lives are like. A simple activity such as this, dramatically improves the students typing skills as well as their ability to communicate in the written word.

 ANNE FRANK JOURNAL

Secondary

Movable Type has many educational applications for the secondary level. At this level students (hopefully) have developed literacy skills that will permit the creation of work that will be content rich as well as be visually appealing. Work created using Movable Type can be easily displayed to parents so that classroom activities and discussions can be continued in the home to increase retention and interest.

Movable Type could be used in the secondary level as a class project to create a class webpage. The Movable Type software allows for the creation of web pages that can be customized to reflect classroom activities. Students could each work on various parts of the design of the class website.

Movable Type could also be used as a classroom discussion tool in the secondary level. Teachers could assign students to a discussion board created with Movable Type to talk about topics that there might not be time for in regular class. This could also allow students that are nervous about speaking in front of the class to get their opinions heard.
As in the elementary level Movable Type can help to increase the literacy of high school age students. Students could read websites and blogs created with Movable Type and they could also create their own websites and blogs.

As with many Web 2.0 tools it is essential that the teacher monitor the posts and content of Movable Type applications added by the students. It is necessary to ensure that the application is being used for educational purposes and that all of the content is appropriate. 7

Post Secondary

At the college level Movable Type could be used for multiple educational/learning situations. For the college campus as a whole, Movable Type would be a great source to make a website. Movable Type would make adding tabs such as financial, housing, admission, etc. easy to navigate through for students, parents, and staff. Another great reason to use Movable Type for this purpose would be the use of blogging.

If Purdue used Moveable Type to create the Purdue web page there could be a link to a blog site. For each major the students could have a place to post about classes, deadlines, scholarships, etc. with other students in their major. The college of education, the Krannert School of Management, and so on would each have their own space to write about things that pertain to those students, and movable type would make this very easy. There are some colleges using this resource already such as Colombia University, Harvard University, University of Illinois and many more. 8

Another way that Movable Type could be used on the college level would be for online courses.  Movable Type would make creating web page for these courses very simple for the teachers, or universities, and the navigation on the site for the students would be easy to follow. Online courses are usually between multiple colleges which mean that there is one common place for all students to gain information from. Movable Type makes it possible to create a site which all students can access and communicate with one another anywhere in the world.

What are some examples of its current educational value or potential value?

Movable Type can help to better improve student writing. We are in the era of technology and therefore students will be more interested in blogging or typing on a computer rather than writing in a journal. It is more useful and efficient these days with all of the current technology for students to write on a blog rather than to get a journal out and write.9 Students can not only access their blog from school but then can also access it from home, making it a good in class activity or a good homework assignment.

Movable Type also helps to make classrooms more like a community. 10 Students and teachers are able to work together to meet a common goal. It allows for collaborative class work between students. Some universities use Movable Type to complete group projects because it allows students to express their ideas and see classmate's ideas in an easy and clear way. 11  Some of these class websites also give parents an opportunity to see what is happening in their child's school, as well as daily announcements and important information. An example of this type of website is: http://gshs.rfsd.k12.co.us/ Movable Type sites inform people of current events, election candidates, health topics, and new inventions. Examples of these sites are: Barack Obama, Boeing, and Simply Recipes.

  3. Unknown User (pgamble)

    Hey, just checking in on our international partners, Ha Jing, Tang Minxia, and Hou Ming. I'm trying to set up a time we can meet online to discuss ideas for the project. If any of you are familiar with Skype or Adobe Connect, let me know so we can figure out a better way to keep in contact.

  4. Unknown User (pgamble)

    I have another question for our international partners. One of the questions we need to address is how Movable Type is used outside of the United States. Include any features that are unique to your version. If you can get information on this with citations included, that would be great.

    1. OK.I will find some imformations. But I want to know how can I send these informations to you!

      1. Unknown User (pgamble)

        You can send us the information by going to the "research movable type" link underneath the section that says children. You can use the edit button to add any information you find in with the rest of our research. Just make sure you include a citation underneath any information you write down. If you can add something by this tuesday that would be great!

  5. Hi! My name is Xiamin Tang. My major is Early Childhood Education.I am from Beijing, China.My interests include reading , playing basketball,watching movies. I am happy to work with everybady. But this is my first time to take part in this program. I will do it by my best!

    My e-mail is hajing0317@gmail.com.

  7. Unknown User (pgamble)

    If any of you have trouble finding three peices of information about your assigned area, but you have some good info about another area, feel free to post that instead. Also, three is the minimum you need to get full points, but feel free to post more info if you would like.

  8. Hey everyone my name is Dan Mirkin and I am from Granger Indiana and my major is Elementary Education.  I transferred here last fall from IUSB and I am looking forward to working with all of you on this project.

  9. Unknown User (aaleard)

    Are we going to set up a time to video chat sometime this week?

  10. Unknown User (ecwelch)

    this is just an idea...I know in a lot of our points we use the examples of simply recipes, barack obama etc.  maybe instead of having the pictures all together at the beginning we should spread them out.  Let me know what you think.

    1. Unknown User (pgamble)

      Sounds like a good idea. If you have any ideas on how it should look, go ahead and edit it. We can always make changes when we start our second draft.

  11. Unknown User (pgamble)

    Hey, this is for anyone who was assigned secondary roles in class today. We need to create a page for all of the secondary roles in our group, so I went ahead and added that to to the children section. I've forgotton who all was doing which roles, so if you could add your name and role to the page that would be great. Any questions, just ask.

  12. Unknown User (pgamble)

    One more thing. If you could get all of your assigned info on to our main page by Saturday, I can go in and get it all in order on Sunday. Thanks!

  13. Unknown User (kcrumbo)

    hi! ok i just have a quick question for anyone who can answer. im working with the 3 lesson plans for the elementary levels. does anyone know where i can find standards with technology? i've already visited indianastandardsresources.org and couldn't find any.

  14. Unknown User (kcrumbo)

    ok. nevermind i ended up finding some standards.

    but patrick i was just curious as to what the different roles are.

    i've just been working on the lesson plans so im not sure which role that would be. if you could just let me know that would be great.

    1. Unknown User (pgamble)

      You can just put your role down as elementary lesson plans. Hope that helps.

  15. Unknown User (ecwelch)

    Hey has anyone figured out how we can do the table of contents so that it will jump down to the different sections?  I tried to figure it out this weekend but I have no idea.

    1. Unknown User (pgamble)

      I know you have to use Wiki Markup, but I've been trying with limited success. We'll probably be able to ask Fang in lab Wednesday.

    2. Unknown User (pgamble)

      Never mind that last post, I finally got it working.

  16. Unknown User (krubiano)

    Why don't you take a look at a different group's page to see how the table of contents link works? It is easier to do that then explain to you how it works! thanks.

  17. Unknown User (abneyj)

    hey! I was sondering if we found a time to skype for extra credit?

    Also I thought that for the show case we could have a laptop running with a blogging cite up and allow people to add information to blogs and stuff...

    it's looking really good!

  18. I feel that our webpage is looking pretty good.  After todays lecture I feel that each question should have a little more information and that each questions should have a picture of an example. I think this would make our page look better.  Also what else can I do to help with the project, I feel we need to work more as a group in class and discuss more because I feel alot of us dont know what to do to get our points for class.  I just want to know what else anyone thinks we can do to improve our web page.  But everything looks good so far and lets keep it up.

  19. also make sure we attach the powerpoints and prochures by Wednesday or else we will lose alot of points!

  20. Unknown User (abneyj)

    we also need to figure out what we're doing with our citations!

    1. Unknown User (pgamble)

      Tomorrow I'm going to go through all of the citations and put links to the reference section at the bottom of the page.

    i think it would be great if we could all possibly meet up sometime tomorrow just so that we have everything in order for our final draft.

    1. Unknown User (pgamble)

      That sounds like a good idea, we just need to find a time and a place. How does 7 at the Union by Starbucks sound?

      1. Unknown User (kcrumbo)

        i can do that. i'll see you there. hopefully everyone gets this.

  22. i can go to see you guys there

  23. Unknown User (ecwelch)

    I can be there....are the citations and presentation materials all we need to finish up?

  24. Unknown User (aaleard)

    Hey guys, I just read all of this. Chelsea and I are working on the project now, and then tonight. I'll see if we can go to the Union but might be kinda hard with our poster in the rain and all.

    Speaking of our website, I just went through and edited grammar wise and what not. I heard Dr. Newby say somebody should do that in lecture so I went ahead and did it, if I missed something feel free to fix it, but grammar is huge so I just took care of it!

    Last thing....how should we add a link to our poster?? I'm not really sure how to go about doing that since it's a poster, let me know, we can probably do it during lab tomorrow

    1. Unknown User (ecwelch)

      make a jpeg or picture file of it and then create a "child page" and attach it.

    2. Unknown User (pgamble)

      If all else fails, it wouldn't be too crazy to take a picture of it and post it.

  26. I cant be there sry I am meeting with another group on another project that I forgot about sry, but yeah I also read over the website and checked for mistakes and it looks good right now.  All we need is for the links to be checked, like you guys said.  Once again sorry I cannot be there but goodluck and see you in class tommorow.  Next time we plan to meet again to prepare for our presentation someone should let us know about the meeting in advance so that way we can all be there.

    Okayyy so the Chelsea and I made a representation of the poster on PowerPoint and included the attachment. I added a childpage and its called Showcase Poster. The link is there and it works on my computer, so i hope the rest of yall can see it!

    We will bring the actual parts of the poster tomorrow, so you can see it, and put it all on the poster later so we don't have to lug it to class!

    thanks, sorry we didn't make it to the meeting.

    I fixed some things on the brochure and attached the new one but I can't figure out how to get rid of the old ones.  If anyone can figure it out the correct brochure is the one added on 4/14.  Thanks!

    Also add your name to the top of the page!

  30. Great Job on the page guys! It looks great!
