So we are about 1/2 way through the semester, so I thought I would share some of my thoughts on this class thus far. I have found this class one of the most beneficial, relevant, and interesting classes I have taken thus far in my 4 year education program. The reason I say this is because the assignments are assignments that I can actually use and put towards my future in teaching. I have started to develop a PLE / PLN, something I never even really knew about before this class. I am working on a major project that gives me and other educators a step by step tutorial on how to use an application to its fullest potential in the classroom. I have connected with other classrooms in the world through Skype, my blog, and twitter.
I believe all of these skills I have acquired, all of the testing of different applications, and all of the collaboration I have done thus far in this class and this semester will make me a better teacher in the future. I have taken many subjects through the four years, I have studied for many hours, and I have written many papers; however, the knowledge I have acquired from this class is more than the above. It is knowledge that I will apply in my future classrooms. I have become a critical thinker and I have developed a community of other educators that I can share with and they can share with me.
