This first post will go over my path towards instructional technology, and goals I have for my first semester in the Instructional Systems Technology graduate certificate program from Indiana University Bloomington

Since the COVID 19 pandemic began in 2020, I saw my students struggle with online learning and the sharp transition in their academic and personal lives. I also saw my colleagues shift to a more virtual work environment, with success and challenge. It made me want to learn more about the ways my students were learning through technology, and hopefully transition to a career in instructional design or educational technology someday. I love working in education, and I want to be able to help people learn and teach better. It has become very clear this past year that online learning isn’t going away, and we need people who can help students and educators use technology effectively to keep folks moving forward with their education.

Ultimately, you get out of college what you put in. Make the most of it by doing everything you can to set yourself up for success. You will be more prepared for your future dream job and career. Take it from someone who just finished and is now applying for jobs: don’t waste this time. Do all you can to set yourself up for a successful future.

I knew that I would receive that A by agreeing with and using my teacher’s ideas

This tactic is most commonly used for written assignments, but students must begin voicing their ideas without fear of being “wrong” because one’s ideas do not correlate to their teacher’s. This will also require teachers to get out of the mindset of believing there is a right or wrong answer. Perhaps creating a how-to on formulating one’s idea. I find that the topic of research will also play a part in this. Recognizing bias while researching plays a crucial role in developing one’s ideas.

If only all teachers are equipped with the right knowledge on how to effectively teach, guide, and conduct assessments, the learning environment for each student would be so much better

With the knowledge I gained from this course, I would definitely bear all of what I have learned in heart and mind as I want my future students to experience holistic learning in my classes. I don’t want to commit the same mistakes that my teachers before have unintentionally done; I want to do my best in this career and vocation to make my students love learning. I want them to love learning or take interest in what I teach in hopes that someday they will impart the knowledge I have passed down to them. I aspire to be the teacher that will not make their school life difficult but rather make it bearable and enjoyable so they can maximize their abilities and potentials in my classes.

There are not enough people willing to put their health on the line for what are essentially poverty wages for a family of four or more, to care for and possibly educate other peoples’ children as substitute teachers

Our economy shut down when schools shut down. It became more visible how schools serve as community centers for social services including access to food, to child care, to health services, along with their primary mission of leading students to learn to read, write, solve mathematical problems, investigate like scientists and to become our future citizens.

The last five to ten years have seen a rapid development of online higher education on the Internet

the growing popularity of the online bachelor’s degree is due to the fact that the online bachelor’s degree in universities is now widely accepted as the equivalent of what can be obtained at any brick and mortar school.
