This week in CEP 810 we were asked to re-purpose three kitchen tools to create something. I asked my husband to pick out three tools from the kitchen. He picked out a plate, an ugly Notre Dame cup, and a spoon. Then he drew a number out of his hat. He drew a four so my challenge was to make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.
The plate worked great to put the bread on. I didn’t use the cup I didn’t have any need for the cup. The spoon was the main tool that I used. I found that it was easy to get the peanut butter out of the container but it was difficult to spread on the bread. The bread ripped and I found that I struggled to get the peanut butter out of the inside of the spoon. The jelly was a squeeze jelly so that was easy to put on the bread. I used the back of the spoon to spread the jelly which was fairly easy.
After completing the TPACK activity I realized that as an educator I need to be flexible and innovative with my students. I need to keep creating and sharing with others (teachers and students) because many minds are better than one. Technology is constantly changing and adapting and as an educator I need to make sure that I am whiling to change and adapt too.
