As I finish this Edtech course, I am reminded how much I truly enjoy the process of trying out new ideas; specifically in the area of technology. Especially when it comes to how I come provide meaningful experiences for students that help them learn concepts in ways they find engaging and inspiring. My experience over the last several weeks with http://www.storyboardthat.com and with revising a tried and true project both emphasize to me how important it is to continue to explore, reflect, and revise my teaching tools and methods. I also know that if I am not trying something new I feel like I am not really doing my job, which is to continually improve my practice.
I also now know that I want to continue to become a more active leader in the area of technology in my team and building. While I don’t have any current interest in leaving the classroom, if I was to do so a job related to education in technology would be of interest. For now, I look forward to finding useful ways to help my peers make better use of tech tools that are out there, so that more students have the opportunity to realize the added benefits that come from taking advantage of the tools at our disposal in the district.
