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.
