Reflection 1 and 2
I have missed the days of writing the reflections. Herm. My bad. So… in this new post, I will write about my reflection regarding this course, what I feel, what I’ve learned and what I expect from this course.
The first lecture regarding this course has given me different perspective about Educational Technology. Well, by all means, anything that involves technology is very informative and interesting, of course. I learn about having WordPress. How to use it, the purpose of it and the interesting elements by using WordPress as a medium of instruction for the course. Although I have my own blog already, but I can see the differences between these two. Blogspot, I think is way informal than WordPress. Though the purpose is the same – use for blogging – the most important thing about having a blog is to share to people what we have in our minds and to deliver the message across – whatever we want to convey to the people.
In 2nd lecture, we are exposed to the world of photography – not in depth, but through this course, we will have the opportunity to take photos (and some of us might show off some skills..hehe) and put it in a form of a media. Well, I like to take pictures and I hope to enhance my skill in it.
Also, we have learned about the terms we use in this course. For example, what is the meaning of “technology”, “education”, “instructional media” and “instructional technology”. These terms, as what I understand, I define as all the technology and media that we can use as means to educate the students. Well, it is important to note that though we are in the modern world, not all schools are equipped with technologies and stuff. Herm. So… teachers-to-be… back-up plan please!
As a conclusion, I’m looking forward for this course. Well, I think I can learn a lot of new things here… =)
