What did you learn about the intersection of technology and instruction? What was your progress on becoming a “tech-savvy” teacher?
I learned about how sometimes the simplest technology is the most effective when delivering a lesson. Often simple technology enhances student learning but can easily become overwhelming for the teacher and the students. I think everything we learned in this class will greatly benefit me in the future.
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 enjoyed the project oriented method of instruction. With the type of learning that we were doing I prefer to investigate and be more of a hands-on learner, working to understand the technology myself because I don’t listen very well when people try to explain how to use it.
