I can say I have already begun to use the tools we have learned about in this class my field experience/research study I also participated in this semester. The students loved using technology, and blogging about what they learned for their final project on popular culture and globalization. While technology is a great way to motivate students, there are still some who will be too cool for school I found, but the majority of the class loved it and it showed in the quality of their work. What the students produced/created and the learning they gained from it was greater than just memorizing the textbook to take a test. Through the use of technology students were able to incorporate their own lives as well making the content much more meaningful and relevant to them. To see their hard work click here.
Overall this technology class has been one of the better ones I have taken here at the university and the things I have learned I know I will use when I begin to teach. I will step off my soap box now... Thanks for reading : )
