Well, the class was not as bad as I thought. I actually enjoyed the time I spent in class. I have to say that I was a bit nervous about going into this class. As I said in my first post, I'm not a "techno geek". I use this term endearingly. I envy those who are technology savvy. I know that it is up to me to do something about my short comings. I feel that I have come a long way in the past few years. It used to be that I feared the smart board, or computer program. Now, I'm not so scared. If I don't know the answer the answer, I find someone who does.
There was a lot of discussion about how the internet has changed society. I find computers a very helpful tool. Honestly I don't buy into the social forums. I fear having my personal information on the internet. I am very careful when purchasing items online. I didn't have a smartphone until 6 months ago. Now, I can't imagine my life without my smartphone. In regards to my classroom, I can't imagine teaching without a Smart board.
Being a visual and kinesthetic learner, I'm happy to be on campus in a classroom. For me, it is much easier to learn about technology while collaborating with people in person. I look forward to having a lot of fun while I learn a more about being a "techno geek".
