Thursdays Presentations…

So once again all of the presentations were wonderful.  I especially liked how the three Myspace/Facebook presentations took different approaches.  They showed different perspectives of using the two programs.  Personally, I was a little freaked out and second guessed using either one of them.  However, both of my accounts are still active.  Now they are […]

Google Scholar!

How sick is it that if you forget your book, you can google scholar it.  Amazing!!  Why even buy textbooks anymore if you can get every single page online?  I for one, would rather have the book because reading tons of pages online gives me a headache but I’m sure not everyone is like that.  […]
