Blog Post #13

Blog Post #13 was a bit of a challenge for me. I took three attempts and failed at trying not to use any electronic devices. One of the 1st things that happened to me was getting a text message from my football coach informing me of the workout –schedule. I can’t miss workouts so I definitely had to respond to each message. The 2nd encounter I had while trying not to use electronics was checking my jaguar email account. I check it every day. I was going try avoiding using it but I was waiting on a very important response from my advisor concerning registration. That’s our main way of communicating. The last encounter I had with trying not to use technology was my two other online classes, Math and Psychology. I have enough trouble trying to balance three computer-based classes so I definitely couldn’t get behind. I had to go online and do homework for math and take post tests for psychology. I never knew I depended on my cellphone or a computer so much. Media is all around us and we don’t truly appreciate it for all its worth. My students will learn that electronics and technology can be very helpful in our daily lives. They will learn to appreciate it and use it to better themselves for a great future.

  1. Teach your students how to use technology for learning and not only for entertainment or for social reasons. They will be even less likely able to escape the constant use of technology.
