This semester in my Education 3011 technology class I am learning a lot of things that make me go "hmmm". The ActiveInspire activities take me a great deal of time to complete because I have never used a promethean board before. I am enjoying learning all of this new technology and how to do new things that I will use in the classroom! I just think it takes me a lot longer than it takes the younger students. I will be 42 years old in April and this new technology came along a little later than when I was in high school.
I am also learning the steps of completing the edTPA by performing mock tasks this semester. It is my hope that my doing practice work that when it comes time to do the real edTPA portfolio next semester that I will not be overwhelmed with the assignment. Also, another thing that makes me go "hmmm" is that this is the second semester that I have taken a full load of 18 credit hours. I was accepted into the SPED program last semester and I will graduate next semester so I am on the fast track! I have a great deal of homework and reading for my courses but it will be worth it when I graduate in December!
