Now that the semester is almost over and Ed Tech 300 is near its end it is time to review how I helped my peers learned over the course of the last few months. There are lots of different platforms that could have been used to help others learn but I am going to focus on the main three, Slack, Blogs, and Twitter.
Starting with Slack, an online community that allows you to post messages, links, resources, and even gifs to a community of people. Slack was probably the platform I used least out of the three platforms, I did not post a lot but I did read other peoples which was very helpful. I did share a helpful video editing/creating site that was specifically designed for use in the work place and classroom. It also gives great presentations and is pretty easy to use.
That was probably my big contribution to slack as I more focused on twitter and blogs!
I really enjoyed blogging and reading other peoples blogs! It was a lot of fun to look at everyones research projects and see the progress that other people were making! A few other people even did similar learning projects to myself so I really enjoyed tracking their progress and blogs. Most of my contribution to others learning in blogs was support and encouragement. Such as on one of my classmates awesome blog posts about Origami which I kept up with weekly because of how interesting it was I would try to comment and keep up with what she was doing that week!
So a lot of my contributions to my classmates with blogs was support and encouragement!
Twitter was the site I was most active on, I really enjoyed using it both to see what my classmates were posting and sharing my own thoughts and resources. I did a lot of resource sharing on twitter on a wide variety of things relating to technology in the classroom. Most often my tweets were resources and ideas that teachers could use but I also replied to lots of my classmates tweets to try and continue conversation about the idea that they had shared.
This class has taught me so much, and I really enjoyed learning from both my prof Katia Hildebrandt and all of my classmates who taught me so much more than I ever thought I would learn in an online class! It was truly such a great experience and I was happy to be apart of it.
