The Learning With the Internet course typically includes SISLT students in the "Technology in Schools" (TiS) focus area and Library and Information Science students. This course also is open to individuals who are not related to a K-12 classroom environment. While the course is somehow geared toward K-12 teachers, project work can accommodate professional interests beyond K-12 teaching and can be adjusted to your situation. Technology in Schools students should develop work that will provide useful portfolio products. For all students in this course, consider developing a project that you can implement and evaluate at some point, even if it’s after the semester.
What are the 2-3 most important things that you believe about learning with the Internet? What is the basis for your beliefs?
1.) There are unlimited deep learning opportunities available via learning with the Internet.
2.) Learning with the internet does not make an educational designer’s job easier.
Basis for both beliefs: As Jahnke states, “Traditionally, communication was limited to lecture hall (Jahnke, 2016, p.2).” Learning opportunities were limited in the past to the teacher and the text. Today deep learning opportunities are unlimited with ICT, communication, collaboration, reflection available anytime and most any place. With all of these opportunities at our fingertips, it does not make our job any easier. “This means that schools and universities need new designs for teaching and learning. (Jahnke, 2016,p.5)”
What are the 2-3 most important things you have experienced or learned from this course? Comment on these.
One of the most important things I am taking away from this course is something I learned from experience as a student in this course. Dr. Jahnke graded one of my first submissions and I did poorly in the beginning. I like how she asked students to add to or correct responses in a different color to “see” our thinking. It was as if I had an “aha” moment. Instead of just grading a student, I have learned that learning is a process and deep learning doesn’t always happen in surface learning.
Collaboration and cooperation are not the same. As a teacher I used the term collaboration for anytime students worked together. (Stoner, 2016) defined collaboration as a “ shared vision and not just one individual’s idea.” Dr. Jahnke designed the perfect assignments for our class to work within both concepts.
