Reflection 1

Technology is something I have considered difficult to work with in the past. I have not always been very confident in my abilities to work in areas other than typing on Microsoft Word and creating presentations on PowerPoint. I have used it throughout most of my schooling and know I will continue to use it for the rest of my life. I feel that learning to use technology in a more hands on way will be much more effective than my previous learning. Whereas I have simply watched someone else do things on a computer, by doing them myself, I will have a better understanding of what is going on.

The future of teaching will require extensive knowledge in areas such as technology and incorporating it into lessons. My participation in classes such as this will play a vital role in my success and how well I am able to instruct future students using technology resources. My students will most likely be up to date on the technology being used throughout the school, so it is my responsibility to continue to keep up with what is relevant and interesting to them, but also helpful in instruction. Technology will be a powerful tool when keeping students actively engaged and also better my abilities to teach in an interesting way.
