I feel that after taking this course I learned a lot about teaching, learning, and about myself. I really see that I have a new perspective on using technology in classroom. I would use technology more as a motivation than as a way of teaching. I know I have learned this because now I have a deeper appreciation in using technology as a learning tool. In my course I have shared what makes a meaningful resources and what is one that promotes drill based learning. What helped me in my learning was the feedback and interaction. I learned a lot from everyone’s posts and courses. Lisa’s course had so many great tools and resources for students to show their learning. After reviewing the course I said to myself, “I wish I did that”.
What hindered my learning was time. This course was a big adjustment in how much time I needed to set aside for this course. I feel as though my school activities got in the way. I really put too much on my plate this year as far as being involved in school activities. This coming school year I am not going to do as much so I can focus more on taking the online courses.
In the beginning of this course I was very overwhelming and did know if I could make. Through support of my friends, family, and in reading through others reflection blogs I saw that I wasn’t the only one and that this was a challenge that I needed to concur. I am so glad that I stuck with it because I learned so much and I can definitely take this with me in my teaching.
