Hello and welcome to my blog!
As part of my university studies course EDC3100, I have been asked to start a blog to document my learning journey through out this course.
A little about me 🙂
My name is Kiera and I currently attend USQ Springfield, completing a degree in Primary Education. Before my university studies I completed a Diploma in Early Education and Care, from completing this I wanted to further my studies to be able to teach in a primary school.
Why did I want to be a teacher?
I have always wanted to be a teacher and I believe this is due to the fantastic and inspiring teachers that I encountered throughout my own schooling years. I loved my school and am so thankful for my education and I hope to one day give that same feeling to my future students.
How I feel about ICT
I feel confident with ICT’s however feel that I need to keep updating myself on the new technologies and programs that become available daily and this can sometimes be quite overwhelming. I also find you need plenty of patience too!
ICT in the classroom
Information technology is such a prominent feature of our every changing society and has to the power to transform teaching and learning. I believe it is important to recognise and embrace students’ ever increasing knowledge of ICT and adapt this into the classroom.
What I hope to achieve
By completing this course I hope to gain new insights into technology and work collaboratively with fellow peers and future teacher mentors to strengthen my ICT skills and pedagogy. I also hope to gain new ideas, inspirations and knowledge about ICT and pedagogy.
Please feel free to comment with your thoughts or ideas, I would love to hear them 🙂
