Summary

This semester in EDAT 6119 I have learned a lot. Before this class I would only use technology when it was necessary, but now I feel as though the use of technology is an asset to my teaching and especially my students learning. I have learned a variety of methods that I can utilize and increase student learning. The second life unit was especially intriguing to me. It will be difficult for me to use this in my field, but I feel that if I can come up with a way to use it, it could be a very fun and educational experience for my students.

Throughout the course of this semester I have really broadened my skills within technology and especially within my field. Now I feel more confidenet that I can present my students with a technology infused educational experience. I feel very priveledged to have been given an opportunity to take this course and I plan to utiliuze all the skills I aquired in my teaching routine.

Interest

I am an avid outdoors man. I am a Land Rover fanatic and currently own three of them. I use them as they were intended...Off-road! I am also enjoying my daughter that was born in January. She had already affected my life in so many ways, it is such an awesome experience. I also really enjoy landscaping in my yard and working on various projects.
