EDM 310 with Dr. John Strange has been the most enlightening, frustrating, fantastic, time consuming class I have participated in my educational career. One thing I can say for sure is that no matter how much time it took, how frustrated I got, this class was worth it! I learned how important technology is. Blogging can actually be educational, youtube holds more than entertainment, that things do not have to cost an arm and a leg to use (there is almost always a free version somewhere), and Google is more than a search engine. Technology is so important in our society today, and as a future educator I realize the importance to use technology in my classroom. The children of tomorrow deserve to learn anything they can about the world around them, and what better way to connect them to it than other blogs around the world.
Thank you Dr. Strange for instilling technological literacy, for continuing to change the schools one future educator at a time. I have learned so much from your class, without the endless notes, quizzes, multiple choice test, i.e. burp back education.
To my fellow classmates, I hope to visit your future classrooms one day through the use of a screen and Skype. :)
