It’s been quite the semester. (Quite the year, really, but that’s something else entirely.)
Barring student loans (yeesh), it’s a great time to be a student or an educator. We have the internet, a universe of information teeming with free educational resources and countless platforms for communication and collaboration. This course has shown me just how many tools we can use while we teach — however, I suspect that the majority of tools are still unknown to me. The internet is, after all, in constant flux. New Web 2.0 technologies will emerge. What I’ve learned in this course, in the former half of 2014, may or may not be relevant when I begin teaching several years from now.
But that’s to be expected. And that’s the most valuable thing I’ve learned from this course: technologies change, and educators’ practices need to change with them.
