Welcome to my Summary of Learning for my second grad studies course, EC&I 830 – Contemporary Issues in Educational Technology. This was my first Masters of Education tech course and I knew going into it that I had a big challenge ahead of me and a lot to learn!
However, the main purpose of taking my Masters in Education is to learn and grow. If I already had the acquired skill set in this area of teaching and technology, then it would therefore be irrelevant for me to complete the course.
Learning is growth, and growth leads to positive change within our classrooms and society. In life, we will continue to live and teach in a dominantly digital world. Therefore, it is vital as both educators and members of society, that we learn how to navigate the use of technology in a purposeful way.
A quote to signify the importance of professional growth: “If we teach today as we taught yesterday, we rob our children of tomorrow.” – John Dewey
As I continue to become further educated on the topic of education and technology, I look forward to developing and enhancing my pedagogy of technology in the classroom.
I want to send out a huge thank-you to you Katia, and all of my fellow classmates for a wonderful learning experience in EC&I 830. Wishing you all the best with your future endeavors of tech use and education!
