Ariana I really enjoyed your blog post this week on multimedia and interactive learning! I strongly agree with your point on living in a technology based world. Due to this and the global pandemic that is currently effecting us, incorporating technology into the classroom is as important as ever. Most schools will remain partially online in the fall (and indefinitely) so I agree that the resources and information we will get from this class will greatly benefit us as educators.
I also want to work with younger students in the future, so I share your interest in learning how to use technology with that age group while keeping screen time low and parents happy. As much as I believe technology is important in the classroom, I would prefer to have my young students outside and interacting with each other. I hope that this class or you will show me how to find a balance of these two things.
Finally, I liked how you provided a short summary of each of the readings from this week. I think that if you continue to do this, it will benefit you greatly after this class is over. I have just been writing down the readings/websites we’ve read in my notes but you’ve inspired me to write blog posts about them now!
