Overall, taking this course has been an enriching experience. I learned about new technology and methods to integrate it into my teaching practice. I’m also leaving here with a more thorough understanding of previous technology that I heard of before but never quite implemented. Ultimately, I wanted to get an in-depth understanding of the interrelationships of different technology between the students and the impact it has on teaching. I feel that I achieved that throughout this past month.
At the end of the day, integrating technology into the classroom is an engaging method to reach diversity in learning styles. Not only did I want to improve as a teacher but I also want to better prepare students that I teach for the future. As the world becomes progressively more technology-dependent, it becomes even more essential that to be successful people, the future generation must learn to be tech-savvy. With the aid of technology, students have the opportunity become more responsible. For example, if an assignment was assigned through Google Docs, a student can’t say that he/she did not receive, didn’t know the due date or forgot it at home because everything is online. Since it is online it could be accessed from any computer or device. Furthermore, technology helps make teaching and learning more significant to the student. Students are also able to collaborate with their peers through online tools applications such as Google Classroom. At the end of the day, technology is integrated in all facets of our lives, and the students who comprehends this well are the ones who will be more equipped to be successful.
