A New Way of Learning
Kennedy, Jarred
Online Submission
I have submitted a paper about the course work I learned in the spring semester of my graduate course. The title of the class is Using the Internet in the Classroom. Throughout the semester we learned about various tools and the technology students have been using to help strengthen their learning experience. My paper discusses the specific learning examples we reviewed and what I took away from these lessons throughout the semester. As the readers guide themselves through my post they will notice educational games and simulations, blogs, and twitter were a main focus of the learning experience this semester. Our class looked at a lot of videos and read summaries to familiarize ourselves with the material so we were able to elaborate on it and summarize what we learned. We had such assignments as discuss whether we would be in favor or not in favor of supporting technology in the classroom. We challenged ourselves by using SecondLife to complete assignments. This was a virtual world that used Avitars to accomplish missions and live life in a 3-D world. All and all my paper analyzes the positive outcomes of using technology in the classroom and how far the classroom has come since the internet has been pushed to the front of all technological advances.
