What did you learn about the intersection of technology and instruction? What was your progress on becoming a “tech-savvy” teacher?
I really enjoyed this class because it introduced many useful technology we can use in our classrooms both during student teaching and in the future. I think it was really cool to explore different websites and apps to use because I didn’t realize that there are so many options to use in a classroom today. Since today is an ever technological society, I think it is incredibly useful to students to make use of all these resources to accompany their learning.
This class was driven by mini-projects instead of test and papers. How did you respond? What does that tell you about student motivation?
I loved how hands on this class was and how we were able to explore every app/websites ourselves. Since it was a class dedicated to learning about the technological aspect of teaching, I think it was great we got to do mini-projects rather than having to do tests and papers. It goes to show how motivating learning can be when it is fun and engaging. This is something to keep in mind for the future as well as teachers because we want to make sure that our students are engaged and having fun learning too.
