During my duration of the program I decided to spend my time focusing on the benefits of ePortfolios in my classroom. I was able to find out an extreme amount of resources and information that assisted in helping me launch my innovation plan for my campus/classroom.
Here are the things that I have accomplished so far:
- Self-directed Learning
- Innovation plan
- Organizational change strategy
- Learning Theory Foundation
- Significant Learning Environment
- Instructional Design/Backward Design
- Measurement strategy
- Online/Blended course
- Personal Learning Network
- M. Ed. Digital Learning & Leading
My Presentation based on my Learning
All of my learning in the program will help me become a better educator to my students. The classroom is a place to experiment and push boundaries. Taking our learning to the next level and intertwining our classroom activities with technology will increase our critical thinking skills.
Sometimes in life we have to take ourselves out of our comfort zones to excel. This program taught me that. Now I find myself yearning for growth and wanting to achieve more in my career and education.
The Importance of having a Growth Mindset
Dweck defines a growth mindset as: “In a growth mindset, people believe that their most basic abilities can be developed through dedication and hard work—brains and talent are just the starting point. This view creates a love of learning and a resilience that is essential for great accomplishment[.]”
