EDM 310 Reflection
The majority of topics we discussed in this class were new information to me. I was very familiar with Microsoft Office 2007, but I had never heard of Google Docs. I think this will probably be the most useful out of everything we learned. It's easy to use, and you have the option to make power point presentations and spreadsheets. It's nice to know all the Google products are FREE! I will be using each of those in my classroom. Making forms were also neat. I'm sure I will try to use this again in the future. The Blogs were also something I was not familiar with. I enjoyed learning about the different topics we were required to make posts about each week. My professional blog will be very useful, because I plan to include it on my resume from now on. iTunes is a great place to search for teaching material, and I would not have known that without this class. This class has given me so much information and so many new options to work with. I feel this class has shaped me into a more professional teacher. I now have the tools to incorporate technology in a variety of ways into my lessons on a daily basis. I have really enjoyed this class and found everything to be useful. I understand why it is a requirement. I don't think I would have been exposed to all this information without this class.
