Summary of Learning

Welcome to my summary of learning for EC&I 831! I invite you to join me on this journey by watching my summary of learning video, where I share insights, reflections, and exciting possibilities for the future. You can find the video at the end of this blog post, and I can’t wait to hear your thoughts and engage in further discussions about the transformative impact of EC&I 831.

For this summary, I chose to utilize Canva to create a visually engaging and informative video. In it, I delve into the invaluable lessons I have learned about building a professional learning network (PLN), harnessing the power of Twitter, embracing blogging, and the potential of open education. These topics have transformed my understanding of educational technology and have equipped me with a wealth of practical strategies to enhance my teaching practice.

The impact of this course on me has been profound. I am excited to bring the knowledge and skills I have acquired into the upcoming school year. The concepts of open education and the power of social media will undoubtedly play a pivotal role in fostering creativity, critical thinking, and authentic learning experiences both for myself and my future students.

Thank you for your support and for being a part of my learning community!

Summary of Learning

This ECI 831 session was unbelievable, the learning that took place over this short one and a half months was incredible. I was able to learn a lot first about myself and social media, how I evolved my own sense of ownership, comfortability in usage, and the obvious learning through social media

platforms; check out my major learning project if you haven’t yet; I sing, I dance,

I make cake, how could you not love it?!?! I generally focused on using the TikTok social media platform to showcase my learning and OOOOOOH MY WORD do I need to give content creators all the credit in the world, it truly took me longer to make the TikTok videos then it did to actually bake/decorate the cakes. One day I spent over 2 hours just working with the editing tools, getting things to splice and slice and find music UH. I was exhausted so kudos and all my respect to anymore who makes a living based off of social media videos; they look easy but man do they take work. I am really happy to say today I tried something new and I took my summary of learning TikTok video and uploaded it to YouTube so I did not have to make it public for everyone to see on TikTok; to be honest I really do not love that I have no control over who sees my TikTok videos; I wish there could have been a way that I could share it to people and they could view it only if they had the link or something along those lines. I was quite proud of myself for dipping my toes into uploading a video onto Youtube. I am sure Youtube has much more to offer then what I did but I am very happy with it.¬†Secondly, the weekly blogs from the class really gave me some things to think about and I have learned a lot about myself through blogging and I felt I could showcase “me” a little more in my work rather than needing to be who I think my professor wants to be and and write how I think they want me to write; this was freeing and liberating with an academic purpose and I very much liked it.

Besides talking about “me” because that it always selfish, I would like to say that learning

about how social media, open education, AI & all other technology topics discussed can play a role in a classroom was pretty profound learning for me.

I have loved learning from all of you!  When you click my google slide link below please hit present and the magic will just happen.
