Making a Spark Page hasn't been a problem for me since I've been using Spark Page for quite some time - not for keeping a journal, though. I've been keeping my thoughts in padlet, an online platform popular among European professionals. But it's great to learn there are other options. It's never late to learn!
I've opened the sources on headshots, actually every single one - great tips for amateurs like me! Hope to be able to use them in my future work.
What are the key takeaways from this lesson? All the tips on how to take and how to make a headshot were absolutely new to me and I was really eager to learn that from experts in the field. To be honest, I've never thought I myself would be doing something like this - making my own headshot. But all the info was worth reading and watching. Really ENGJOYED every single piece of it!
I didn't know that there are so many differences between our European type of CV and American resume! Opened most f the links - detailed info on similarities and differences - easy to grasp.That's a good point - definitely pre-teach and teach stuff on this topic - certain students will be interested and thankful for passing commenting this topic!
Quite impressed with what I saw - amazingly looking Resumes - format, colours, rubrics, etc.! Don't know if I'd be able to come closer to some of them!
I've spent an enormous time completing my resume - first drafting it on paper, trhying to minimise it as muc as possible, then building it stp by step. Had problems finding the right icons I needed] changed the layout a few times; changed palette don't know how many times; don't think what I have is what I want, but it has been quite an experience; I've learnt so many things and I'm sure my second attempt will be much better!
Honestly, the idea of creating my logo has never crossed my mind! I've never thought I'll be designing a logo of any kind; after watching the videos, I made my mind what it should look like - simply using my initials and playing with some of the letters in my maiden name; simple coincidence that I have the letters 'E'and 'T' in my name, since I wanted the logo to say, or better, shout what I am - a teacher using latest technologies in class, one of the E-Teachers on the 2011 summer course at UMBC, USA. As to colours: tried different shades and strokes + I love dark blue; Here come three versions of my logo:
