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.

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.

As educators, we should be designing learning activities that are hands-on, active, and applied; that provide students with a lot of voice and choice; that allow them to be creative; that foster their critical thinking and problem-solving skills; that let them share, communicate, and collaborate; that provide opportunities for them to tap into their interests and passions; that give them chances to use technology in interesting ways; that connect them in meaningful ways with outside experts, organizations, and local communities; and so on…

All of our students deserve deeper learning opportunities, even during a pandemic.

If you are catching me for the first time. ( I think I had 8 people looking at this blog before I abandoned it last year due to life) you will see from other posts I usually share a free idea or resource then say “This is how I would teach it.” So this post is just dipping my toe back into the biosphere after being too overwhelmed to keep up. Please share if you can. More users always helps keep me going!

Its summer 2019. I don’t even know when I touched this blog last. I created it because I hate pay to play teacher sites. Making money off your teaching ideas, resources and approaches is for college professors and textbook companies. Teachers Pay Teachers is the saddest commentary on the state of our profession. We take the meager salaries we have, invest them…
