After completing the course Foundations of Educational Technology, I find myself eager to continue my journey towards obtaining my technology endorsement. I was excited to try some new collaborative web technology such as Popplet and Padlet as well as Google Groups. I loved changing some of my assignments to multimedia presentations that included The 4C’s: Creativity, Collaboration, Communication and Collaboration. My students were thrilled to try out the virtual reality app Expeditions.
The biggest impact this class has made on me is my view of how technology should be used in my classroom. Earlier this year, I was asked to be part of my district technology committee, and after completing this course I feel that I have a lot to offer. By using the SAMR and RAT frameworks, I can help my district adopt a technology curriculum that will help to transform and redefine how our students are learning.
