Welcome to the Learning Technologies Podcast. Today’s topic is …Microsoft MS Paint. Microsoft is dropping various features and functionalities from its new build. In preparation for the release of the Fall Creators Update, Microsoft has published the full list of stories that will be removed or depreciated from the new build.
MSPaint will be sorely missed. It was the gateway for new and vintage computer nerds.
What is your reaction to Microsoft’s decision? Are there other applications and programs that we should also mourn?
Thank you for considering these questions with me. I enjoy learning from you! Please leave a comment and let’s keep the discussion going.
“Books were only one type of receptacle where we stored a lot of things we were afraid we might forget. There is nothing magical in them, at all.

*”When we reflect upon an experience instead of just having it, we inevitably distinguish between our own attitude and the objects toward which we sustain the attitude. Such reflection upon experience gives rise to a distinction of what we experience (the experienced) and the experiencing–the how.” ~Dewey, J. (1916). Democracy and Education. p. 173 as quoted by Robert C. Lagueux here
Participatory Partnerships Tip #9: Seek and Find the Targeted Source. After meeting, listening, working with what is familiar, publishing, and celebrating success, begin to drill down to the needed targeted resources for mobile access, differentiation, reteaching, and extensions.
