CEP 810 Reflection

Over the last seven weeks I have been challenged to learn new things and reflect on my teaching practices.  The Network Learning Project pushed me outside my bubble to learn something new.  There were times I was extremely frustrated giving me insight into how some of my students may feel when they don’t understand something.  I learned how to share on youtube and blog about my experiences on WordPress.  Not only was I pushed to learn something new I also was challenged to make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich using a spoon, a plate, and a cup.  I learned that repurposing tools to create something is a great way for students to show their creativity.  My goal this year is to let my students create and not hold them back with tight restrictions.  I am lucky enough to have one-to-one Chromebooks next year.

I am still trying to wrap my head around how I am going to use all the information I learned with my students.  My goal is to implement something new each month so I don’t overwhelm my students or myself.  I also want to know what the best way is to implement all the new information I learned into my classroom.

    I have no doubt that if you keep wrapping your brain around those questions you’ll start to form some good plans to work with opening up your instructional setting a bit. Starting small will help, and you might find that refining the use of a tool or instructional practice before moving onto a new thing may be more beneficial than sticking to a rigid time schedule.

    Digging deeper into questioning, and asking students to reflect on their own learning might be the first steps you need to loosen up your classroom a bit. I’m sure your students would love to explore various creation tools, and give you direction about which tools might be better for certain tasks as you all explore together.
