Final blog post

For me this semester, innovative meant a few different things. At the start of my semester and even now, I was juggling my time between an infant and school work. I had to get innovative on how I used my time. It meant limiting my online time and trying to use the time I did have to solely focus on the assignment that were day this day or the next. I did not have much time to look forward, which was a change for me. I was always used to be able to look ahead and get that assignment done.  I changed the way I learned because I was not able to be as free as I used to be. I used to be able to dissect even the smallest details and research it. I did not have that luxury this semester.

In the course, my different areas of my talents needed to explore, some new and some that I already thought I had strength in. To be honest, I thought I had a vast understanding of technology but I learned there were so many tools that I didn’t utilize that I could have been. Innovation would be using my resources to expands on my weakness and strengths. I thought the quote by George Couros describe this idea the best:  “I believe that my abilities, intelligence, and talents can be developed, leading to the creation of new and better ideas.”

I’m not a teacher in the sense I have a classroom, but I think in some ways, we are all teachers. We all have the ability to teach the world about different things. We can teach the world about our strengths and talents. I think as an parent, I have learned things from this class that will be an assent for my children when they are in school. I plan on fostering their passions and using it to get them involved in their own education. I think the passion project was the most influential on me because it made me explore my own learning methods, and it got me interested in learning. I think the interest and want is the most important part of learning. If you don’t have that piece, will you really be striving to learn?

I do think that I will be using the social and technology tools from this semester. In the past, I have tried to get a blog started but it always failed. I didn’t know where to start because I thought it had to have a niche, but I learned otherwise. I just need to have a little passion in what I post about. If your excited about it, others will be too.

  2. Wow, I thought I was stressed out with a job and two summer classes. I cannot imagine taking care a little baby while trying to do the homework! I have so much appreciation to mother’s like you who are out there getting their education while raising their children. You are strong. Great blog post!

  3. With four summer classes and a full-time job, I was pretty stressed. But I’m sure that taking care of a baby is an entirely different realm that I just can’t even comprehend. I commend you for it! Good stuff in this post though!
