Blog Post # 12

EDM 310 classroom

Assignment: In this weeks post I would like you to give a detailed response to EDM 310. What I mean by response is what you like or dislike about it and how you think we could improve it, if you think it needs improved.

I really was scared of EDM 310 because I had very little computer skills and felt like I was in over my head. I later realized that these are the skills I’ll be needing to help teach my future students.  I totally agree with Dr. Strange now because I have realized that technology is the future and these are the skills they will need. In the beginning of this class I new very little about how much the computer has to offer and what it could do for my classroom. But, now I have learned to make movies, create a bolg, put modifiers on pictures, and even how to communicate with teachers/students from around the world through technology. I have to say 9 hrs a week extra is a lot but you need every bit of it to complete your assignments. I am glad I struck in there this semester in EDM 310 because it has really helped me open up to technology. I think the most important thing that has helped me is the EDM 310 lab and assistance, which was open a lot of the time with someone there to help.


  1. Hi Brittany,
    I like your concept for the assignment for Blog post # 12. Getting feebdback from previous students about their likes and dislike can help future students by giving then suggestion about issues or concerns they may encounter while taking EDM 310. It's great that you realize that technology is what future teachers need to know in order to teach this technoloy to students from day one of their school year. I can tell you will be a great teacher by the excitement of what you have learned.

  2. Hi!
    This is a great assignment that you came up with, especially since it’s getting close to the end of the semester. Also, I agree with your response to the assignment. I was a little nervous about this class, too, because I didn’t know that much about computers or any other kind of technology. Now I see how fun technology can be and how necessary it is in education. EDM 310 is definitely not one of those classes where we’ll forget everything we learned by the next semester. Great job!

  3. Very interesting. I am glad EDM310 is being helpful to you. A separate question: What did you learn about teaching?
