This is one of my last requirements of my EOTC course. I am supposed to reflect on my individual teaching abilities. I am a little lost on what to suppose to be included here but here it goes. I have been using online components in my class for several years. It first it was a website I created for student to view and answer questions.
Next I had the student begin to email their assignment in. In order to keep these assignments organized the student had to label both their email and the assignment a specific way. Which was class period, last name, first name and assignment number. It was easy to search through my email and find all the assignments that had been turned in correctly.
The next step was to use Angel LMS, which I believe now is part of Blackboard. I took a class on online learning as part of my EdS program. The program required me to design a shell and lesson inside Blackboard. I learned a lot in the process. Not too long after this I started training with GAVS. At the time I had a toddler and had to stop after the first semester.
After finishing my EdS I begin ETMOOC. Part of the class was starting this blog. The summer after #ETMOOC I started my first online teaching job teaching for the Impact Academy part time. I was hoping for a full time job but. To my surprise Impact was more blended learning then online.
I started an instructional web series on how to use your iOS device. I give explanations of how to do thing in 60 seconds or less. The name of the series is Tap That iOS.
Finally I have spent the last 3 years, teaching film and video production. I discovered Google Classroom early on and have not looked back since. This last year I started participating in several education chats on Twitter, earned my Apple Teacher Certification and am Google Ninja trained.
I hope you enjoyed this blog.
