Where am I now?

Philosophy of Teachnology

The least effective way I have seen teachers use technology in the classroom is either poor presentation or zero technology use. I have had teachers create a very dry, boring PowerPoint resulting in me having absolutely no interest in learning the material or paying attention to the professor. I am a visual learner so to me, it is very important that the presentation be as interesting as the speaker.

The most effective way I have seen teachers use technology is in my spring Education Technology course. I have not had a teacher or professor utilize Google Docs where the students take surveys and have the results shown quickly or editing a document with my peers to share ideas without having to move around the classroom. This is something new to me and I was very interested and intrigued to see it in use.
