So I am writing this the day after I tweeted for the very first time, I used a hashtag and all! Twitter was starting to become popular during my first time in college. Just like blogging, I didn’t think that I had anything worth saying. It was not a decision that I took lightly, signing up for Twitter, but I am so glad that I did. I have not been an avid user, but ever since signing up I have found so many great ideas on there! Twitter is one technology that I want to try out this semester, and be better at. I will casually look at it now but I know I am not using it to its full potential. I think that Twitter will also be a great addition to my classroom someday.
If you would have asked me if I ever thought that I would blog in my lifetime, I would have definitely laughed at that question, and said no. I have never thought I had anything interesting enough to say and that people would listen (or read). This if for sure pushing me out of my comfort zone but I will give it a try! This semester I would just like to be more comfortable with technology. Before taking education media applications, I was unsure on my feelings on using technology in the classroom. Someday, I hope to be an elementary teacher and I didn’t know how you could use technology successfully with younger students. This class is definitely making me think outside of the box, in a very good way! I hope to take all the information that I learn in education media applications to my classroom someday. I absolutely think that my students will benefit because of it.
