Week 1 Assignment Questions

  1. Why am I taking EDUC8Y59?
  • I believe that to be an effective and engaging teacher in an intermediate school setting, it is vital to stay current with the latest informational technology and to be able to apply it regularly in my lesson plans.
2.  What is my view of technology in education?

  • In this day and age, children are exposed to a variety of technologies at a very young age.  Young children have been exposed to regular use of computers, the internet, cell phones, tablet devices and a variety of electronic gaming devices such as Nintendo DS, PSP, Wii and Xbox.  Children, for the most part, really enjoy use of these technologies in general.  If we are able to harness that interest and direct it into learning and education via technology in the classroom, we will be able to couple the pleasure and "fantasy" derived by electronic technology with the ability to teach/learn a variety of different concepts in the classroom.
