July 9th Class
Among much valuable knowledge gained from Fridays Tech class two things were of particular importance:
1) Google and all of its Applications
I had no idea of the endless possibilities available through Google's products. I especially enjoyed the Life Magazine archive, which I could likely find very useful when teaching a social studies class. I will have to make a deliberate attempt to use these resources.
2) Lesson Planning
This being the first time we attempted to create a lesson plan, the process was a bit overwhelming due to the amount of factors that we had to take into account. However it was quite exciting that this project was relevant to what we will be doing in the near future. We were trying to incorporate the theory we have learned thus far to make an exceptional and engaging lesson plan. It did help that the particular topic we needed to cover was quite important and relevant to all of us. Practice, practice, practice.....
