Change Agent - Will Richardson interview in Education Week

Change Agent

Lots of food for thought in this article that encourages me to think that maybe what we have been doing in our technology course is a step in the right direction. That is, creating a web presence - a personal learning environment - to support, help organize, and encourage your learning and exploration of the possibilities of technology for teaching and ongoing professional development

Learning Technology by Design

I liked reading the "Learning in the Design Approach" section. These points were very clear to me once I finished my video and podcast. I also did these things before class so I was on my own. It took me awhile to actually figure out how to use iMovie; recording was the easy part. I think this was a great experience for us because it's just the beginning of a whole new teaching style. Using technology like this to enhance learning just makes kids more motivated and eager to learn. You are not only encouraging skills like independence and creativity, but allowing students to gain knowledge of technology and what you can do with it. I completely agree with the article about how technology is a continuous process and providing time for these projects is crucial.
