Project 1 Initial Reflection

Here we GO!!

What do you think this class is all about?

Teaching students using technology, having fun with technology, and learning how to be a great teacher in today's technology era.

What do you hope to learn during this class?

I hope to learn how to be more confident in the technology field of teaching.

What are your preconceived notions about the use of technology in the classroom?

I am an older student, so technology wasn't in the classroom like today's generation. I'm not as fast, or comfortable using computers as some other teachers/students.

What do you plan to do to be successful in this course?

I plan to use all of the tools that are given to me, to improve my technology skills.

What are your expectations for yourself as a student in this technology class?

I hope to become more familiar with the use of technology. In today's society technology is so important, and having educational ideas at hand with the use of technology will be very rewarding.

What are your expectations for yourself as a future teacher using (or not using) technology in your classroom?

I believe technology is an important skill to be familiar with, and in this generation a staple in everyday lives. The internet can be very helpful in finding research information, but not all things posted are the truth. Therefore, students need to also be capable of using books for research information.

Will the kind of student you are now reflect the type of teacher you might become later? Why or why not?

I think in many ways, yes. I have so many things to learn to become a better student, and teacher. I think this is an everyday learning experience. You can never learn enough, to not learn more.

What issues will you face in your journey to become a teacher? How can this class help you overcome these issues?

There are many issues I have already ran into, on my journey to becoming a teacher. I waited a very long time to return to school, almost 20 years. As you can imagine the technology has changed in very large ways. In this class learning the technology side of teaching will be a helpful tool for my classroom, and I'm sure a huge time saver.
