When I think about this semester so far I feel pretty happy about my progress. I expected to learn about the skills needed to be successful in the digital world we live in. I have gained a lot of skills from this class so far that I think will be very helpful for my success as a teacher.
I think the most interesting module so far has been the one about hacking our education. I think the videos and the articles were all very informative and relevant to the educational philosophy that I wish to have in my class.
The most challenging module has been the Personal Learning Networks. I have a really hard time with social media and getting interested in it, so this was a challenge for me. I understand how important this is for educators so I am glad that I have more knowledge on how to successfully be involved in a learning network.
In the second half of the semester I am really excited about the daily create, which I will be starting on Monday. I am excited because I like working creatively with technology even though it makes me a little anxious, I think it will help me branch out in my educational teaching styles.
Something that I have really loved about this class has been the blogging, I have never had a blog before, but I really like being able to write about something every week. I used to write all the time, but with the stress of school and work I fell out of practice. I think I will continue this blog even after this class is over. I think it is a great way to release stress by having a creative outlet whether it is reading or writing.
