Computer Technology and Multimedia

This course EDUC 8823 has proven quite effective and relevant, thus far. I can see the potential of this application–Blogging, in the schools at multiple levels. Students can post, present, discuss and analyze comments and textual submissions online. Blogging can also prove to be a valuable research tool, as well. Students can be given a topic, discuss it online, and add relevant material to the Blog–ongoing. I need to see if it could serve as an electronic portfolio. Interesting…This course has opened up another, parallel world for me in education. Boy did I miss a lot of opportunities to reach my students! I can be so much more effective now. This year, my students will be rewarded with more resources to access and develop information. I believe this will empower them to participate, and seek more on their own.

Time will tell.

“My Life in Digital”

The advancements in technology have impacted my personal, social, family and career life. I don’t think there is any aspect of my life that is in unaffected by computer, cell phone or other portable communication/locator device. How did I ever make it through the day without my cell phone, cable internet, gps or lap top? I can definitely say that I am a child of the Age of Technology. From the time my programmable coffee maker awakens me to the smell of freshly perked coffee; until I sign-off on my lap top, and lay awake with the timer on my television set to automatically turn off at 11:30 pm–I am impacted by the advancements of the Technology Age.
