It feels so good when we state what we have learned. No doubt, I have a lot of things to take from EC&I832, tried many new things digitally like Twitter, TikTok, Discord, and browsed a lot more apps as well. However, I am not stopping here and still have many things to learn and I am going to continue growing with my journey. Media impacts every aspect of our lives, specifically affecting the way we relate to, learn about, and interact with the people around us. Whether it be through social media, blogs, advertising, or the nightly news, all aspects of media cumulatively affect our perception of the world and what is happening within it. With such an incredible impact on our daily lives, the ability to navigate, verify, and trust information is vital for everyone.
Through my “Summary of Learning”, in a Padlet, I am sharing a few topics which we have learned and shared with each other. It has been a great journey and for me, learning about Digital Citizenship and Media Literacy is a great opportunity as it was something new and with the help of Alec and other Classmates; I am able to learn how I can incorporate and integrate it into my classroom with my students as well as at home with our kids.
