Wow! I think I made it. There were times when I didn’t think I would. Even though I felt very frustrated with this class it was a lot of fun as well. I’ve learned so much. I’ve learned a lot about different educational technology tools that I am excited to use in my classroom. I’ve read many blogs on the Internet before but never really thought about starting one myself. I also learned about different tech tools I can use as an educator. I have used Google as a search engine and Gmail, but didn’t know that Google offers many more applications. I’ve learned how to create videos and upload them to Youtube. I also learned about Project Based Learning. I think Project Based Learning will be a great way for students to get excited about creating projects in the classroom.
The three Learning Outcomes for this class were: practice thoughtful, cognitive reflection and dialogue about the application and impact of technology in education, develop multiple assignment evidencing the mastery of a broad scope of learning technologies, and develop a professional website. I believe that I have demonstrated learning outcome 1 by participating and completing my blog every week. I have created videos and uploaded them to Youtube which demonstrates learning outcome two, and I have developed a website and E-portfolio which was the goal for learning outcome three.
So even though this course was a challenge I learned about all kinds of tech tools for my classroom. I’m really excited to show my students everything that I have learned from this course. Hopefully, they will be just as excited about these tools as I am.
