This course has made me examine my approach to thinking about how to teach art lessons or projects, with regard to the use of technology. I believe that the landscape of students and their needs are evolving rapidly due to the availability of technology. It is an instructors responsibility to provide a platform for learning that excites, challenges, and rewards 21st Century Learners. Fortunately, Google Drive and the related applications provide educators and students a platform for sharing and collaborating in an educational setting. I, now, have a more well-rounded view of how convenient and powerful such applications can be when used synergistically. I must admit that learning how to produce a Screencast posed challenges, but I’m glad that I have a few in my portfolio! There were a number of first encounters, with regard to my use of Google applications, such as the Sheets assignment and the use of Tech Tools. Ultimately, I see the skills that I gleaned from EDUC 407 as building blocks for the future of my journey as an educator. One thought, is to build upon the projects and assignments, further refine engagement principles, use of technology and modeling. Keeping the latter in mind while searching for ways to imbue lessons with various forms of text and preparing students for the 21st century work force is the challenge that I have chosen to pursue as a future educator. The time spent with such strategies or processes allows one to further their mastery of such applications. As new as the process may be, over time facility will increase; I liken it to playing scales as a musician or drawing from real models in an anatomy class. I have reconsidered my approach to teaching the discipline of art and design, as a result of taking this course.
