A new technology adventure! The fall brings a new school year and a new semester. This fall I am taking two classes. This blog post refers to my Applying Education Technology to Practice class. This week we were charged with creating a screencast to solve a problem of practice in our current classroom. We had to identify what type of problem it was. I identified mine as a Complex Problem. Which is defined as: problems that require the simultaneous consideration of multiple variables, many of which change or evolve.” (Stone) I will have to admit I had trouble figuring something out until I came to realized this school year, the general education US Economics class I co-teach is in the process of solving our “problem of practice.” We are working on changing how we bring material to students, better utilizing the two teachers we have in the classroom and how to integrate technology more effectively into our classroom. This was the perfect assignment for me to figure out how to bring technology into the classroom. I am hoping that it will be integrated soon!
