Blog Post # 12
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.
