Welcome! Come on in from the elements out there!
I’m Amanda, a student of the Teaching with Technology course at my university. I’ve encountered technology certainly, but there’s a lot out there that I don’t know about. Part of me would want nothing more than to be a “luddite” and never see a computer again. Technology takes time to learn how to use and keep updated. I have plenty of other interests to keep me busy. However, I understand that technology is important and useful. Nowadays training to be a teacher is hand-in-hand with learning to use technology. This blog will ultimately chronicle my explorations, frustrations, and successes.
So far I’ve used social networking sites such as facebook and other programs like wikis, blogs, Microsoft Word, Powerpoint, and Excel. I’ve loaded digital pictures and have used basic editing skills on them. I’m looking forward to expanding this repertoire to include many unknowns that will soon take up names (as I take up skills).
Until next edit,
