A Final Summary of Learning
A Few Quick Thoughts
I have to say, the Summary of Learning project is always a task that I feel the least comfortable with. Luckily, Durston came to the rescue and brought me on board for a second time to work on our Summary of Learning together. I’ll get more into the details soon here, but I just wanted to send a quick mention out to him first1 Anyways, back to the point here, the Summary of Learning is the project which I always feel the least satisfied with. Not because of the project itself, but more so because of my incessant need to get better at them, and to one day eventually make the list. This is my last course in the Master’s of Educational Technology and Media Certificate, so although I didn’t make that goal (yet), I can say for sure that I have progressed, learned, and got more confident with the task at hand now. A special thanks to Jennifer, and Alyssa for checking in often and seeing how my Summary of Learning is going. Their support and positivity do not go unnoticed and are greatly appreciated!
Debate #7: Educators and Schools Have a Responsibility to Help Their Students Develop a Digital Footprint
(Week #6: Post #1)
Feeling the Calm-er Vibes
To be quite honest, I quite enjoyed this debate topic. Even though people seemed to really be on one side or the other, it wasn’t heated at all. I wasn’t fired up, and I was able to communicate ideas quite clearly. There were a lot of great points that were brought up on both sides, but something that kept coming up over and over again was the idea that teachers are unprepared for teaching kiddos about digital citizenship and footprints, and many people are using the two ideas interchangeably. However, before I get too far into summarizing my own thoughts on the idea, take a quick peek at some of the main points I gathered from the debate.
Debate #6: Cellphones Should Be Banned in the Classroom
(Week #5: Post #2)
Looking Forward to Hearing from YOU!
This is an especially interesting topic to me, and I think that most people fall on one side or the other, and only a few fall right down the middle. I am interested to hear what other people have to say about this topic, especially how their own experiences have shaped their feelings. I know that there are a few of us in the course that aren’t social media users, and there are also a few that are very active, so it’s always interesting to see what people have to say. I think that both of the topics for this week fit together nicely, and I think that points brought up this week could be interchanged for either debate. Very interesting, indeed!
